April 2014 Diva Dare - Day 12

Hi Verve fans!  It's Julee here, popping in to wrap up this month's Little Things Diva Dare.  The deadline for your challenge entries and comments is 8pm on Wednesday, April 23.  I've added the linky widget to the bottom of this post, so it's easy to find!


For my card, I pulled out the Birthday Bots set and got to work making a card for a friend who is expecting a little girl.  The bot is stamped onto a pre-made tag shape, then I paper pieced the jumper and colored the hat with copics and added some dots around the tag to set it off.  The sentiment is colored with Copics and then coated with glossy glaze.  I did the same to some star die cuts from the Starry Die, sprinkling a little glitter on them for a some shine.  A stick pin and some ribbon from the Truly Madly Deeply Ribbon Collection accent things and I embossed the pretty in pink layer with my favorite Stars & Swirls embossing folder.

Supply List
Stamps:  Birthday Bots (Verve Stamps)
Paper: Bundle of Joy Dots & Stripes (Echo Park), pretty in pink (SU!)
Ink: Black, copics
