Zva Creative and my fellow Design Team members welcome you to our April blog hop! We are excited and happy you are joining us and look forward to sharing our new work with you!

Today's Blog Hop begins at Zva Creative's Facebook Page! Be sure to head on over to check it out! You will also find a complete list of all the participating blogs there (in case there is a glitch along the way). 

As you know, Zva offers many beautiful color groupings for pearls, flowers and crystals.  If you like what you see along the hop you can find a list of stores and online retailers that sell Zva HERE.

Here is what I created using gorgeous Zva Creative bling in shades of purple!
For this layout, I used papers Alma's Sewing Room collection by Pion Design.  The lovely plum/purple tones worked well with the beautiful bling.
Do you not love these flourishes?!  Both the designs and colors are stunning!
The background was altered sing Natural Sand medium by Liquitex mixed with paint.  I used a stencil to add the elegant, textured script.
The floral clusters are made up of a variety of beautiful Prima flowers in various shades of purple.  
I used two different designs by Zva Creative to create this corner flourish.  I love the versatility of Zva's bling!
The chipboard elements are made by the Dusty Attic.  They were painted, misted and inked to match.


If you would like to play along with our design team, just follow along the blog path.  I am linking to one of the Zva designers and that designer is linking to the next and so on. Be prepared to be inspired along the way!
The Blog Hop starts today, April 29th, and runs through midnight US Eastern Standard Time on Tuesday, April 30th.

All you need to do is leave a comment on this Blog Hop post... you do not need to leave a comment on each and every designer's blog post to qualify. However, the more times you comment along the blog hop path, the more chances you will have to win.

The 5 winners will be announced on Wednesday, May 1st on Zva Creative's Facebook Page. We will do our best to notify each winner, but it's best if you can pop in to Zva's blog on Wednesday to see if you are a winner!
