Hello All!! This is going to be a quick post since my electric is threatening to go out.  It has almost gone off four times already (going off for a few minutes and then off).  I don't want to let my Divine Diva team members down so I better get to it.

Today it is time for another Divine Diva Inspiration challenge.  Lori sent the team this photo as our inspiration

I took my inspiration from the owl and leaves as well as the pink and brown.  This is my completed project:

The image is from Inkadinkadoo Birds Galore clear stamp set which is one of my more neglected stamps.  We never have enough time to ink all we have it seems.  I stamped it in brown and then added pink to it. The dp is basic grey sugared.  The pearls are ZVA Creative.

For more inspiration, please visit my dt sisters:


This week is Kerri's last week as a challenge team member.  Kerri has been a dt member from March 2009 when this challenge began.  You have always been a joy to work with Kerri!!  You will surely be missed.  Of course you won't be a stranger being that we are on other teams together as well and I WILL be at your blog.

Hope you are inspired to come and play along with the Divine Diva Challenge. Just leave a comment here with a link to your card. We can't wait to see what you create! The keyword for uploading on SCS will be DDIC39
