March Diva Dare Day 7

Welcome to Day 7 of the March Diva Dare!! Here's how our Diva Dare works... following each release, we post a theme we dare you with, and you'll have two weeks to complete the challenge. During those two weeks, the release team will post their creations and tell you how they answered the dare!

This month we dare you to make a card, project, layout, or whatever fits your stamping style using this month's theme - Color Me Spring! Whether you are shoveling snow off of your sidewalks and only dreaming of warmer weather or you are already enjoying the first blooms of the season, this challenge is sure to put a spring in your step! How you interpret the challenge is up to you! Stay tuned to learn how you could win some shiny new Verve!!

This is how I answered the dare...
Here are some close-ups of each individual egg:

Hi Verve fans, it's Andrea here! Egg decorating is a big event at my house each year. Grandparents, parents, kids all gather around to see how they can beautify those little round, white canvases. This year I've added my own Verve twist to decorating by using Verve's new Egg-stra Special set paired with the new Charming Oval dies to make some elegant eggs. After the dyeing process, I cut some origami paper with a border punch and adhered it to the egg. To the top, I added a paper flower and a pearl middle. The sentiments were done using the Charming Oval die to which I also lightly distressed the edges with some sponging. I then simply attached it to the paper border. This project was so incredibly easy, in fact, dyeing the eggs took me the longest! Sooo...look out more white crayon for me!
