August Diva Inspirations Hop and Challenge

Welcome to our monthly Diva Inspirations Challenge and Blog Hop!

There are TWO $30 gift vouchers to the Verve store up for grabs this month and two ways to win! 

First, comment on the design team's blog hop posts (linked below) for an entry in the first giveaway. 

Then to be entered into our challenge prize drawing, go get inky and link up your take on the challenge. You have until September 5 to enter. Feel free to play along with the challenge as many times as you like. Verve stamps are not required to play, but we do smile a little brighter when see them!

Without further ado, here is our August challenge... 
Summer brights fade into earthy tones for the dog days of summer. With the hustle and bustle of the end of summer coming, a breezy, free-spirited graphic is what we have in store for you this month. Follow the color pattern, or be inspired to journey where the creative winds may take you. We can't wait to see what you create!

Want a closer look?
Here's a closer look at the inspiration.  I kind of want to make one of my own!  If you're so inclined, there's a tutorial at Pattern Revolution.

Need a little inspiration? Check out the blogs linked below to see what the Divas did with the challenge! It's sure to be a treat, and speaking of treats, we're giving away a $30 gift voucher to Verve to one random commenter along the hop.  Just leave a little love as you hop about for a chance to win!
