November Diva Dare - Day 7

Vellum Visions - November Diva Dare

Welcome to November's Diva Dare!  Christyne here, bringing you some more inspiration for this month's Diva Dare: Vellum Visions!  Soft and classy...vellum always makes a big impression!  So, this month we are daring you to add some vellum to your card or project.

My card for you today, answering this awesome challenge, uses a soft palette with vellum mats.  I like using vellum mats when I want a more subtle contrast or border than traditional paper mats would provide.  I paired this dare with today's fresh VLV inspiration and sketch challenges.  These challenges inspired me to use the Tall Oaks stamp set to create a soft fall-themed card to pair with my vellum.  I also used the Autumn Elements ribbon collection and the Shine Bright sequin mix to embellish my card. 
Two ways to win prizes for double the fun!

Win a $40 gift voucher to Verve! Take our Vellum Visions dare and link your card up to be eligible to win.  Entries must include some vellum, be posted 11/7 or later, include at least one Verve product and be linked up to the linky widget by 8pm Mountain on 11/29/14.  One participant will be randomly selected to win the gift voucher.  You can enter as many times as you like, but each card needs to be in a separate post.

Win a Verve set of your choice! For another chance to win some new Verve, leave a little comment love on our design team's Vellum Visions Diva Dare posts!  One lucky commenter will win a Verve stamp set of his or her choice, so be sure to tune in each day!  Comment deadline to be entered in our prize drawing is November 29, 2014.

There's some more November-themed inspiration and a fresh sketch over at Viva la Verve today, too!  Head on over and check it out!

I hope you are inspired to add vellum to your next project using your favorite Verve Stamps!

Winners of this month's Diva Dare will be announced on November 30, 2014!
