July Diva Dare ~ Day 10

Good morning Verve fans!!  Maureen here and I have the honour of tying things up after 10 days of seriously stunning projects by the Divas.

This month we dare you to make a card, project, layout, or whatever fits your stamping style using this month's theme - Sentimental About Paper!  It's time to dig into all that gorgeous patterned paper you've been hoarding saving (we know you have some!!)!  Showcase all those amazing sentiment stamps (no images) to create a new and never before seen project!  Paired with pretty patterned paper, Verve's famous sentiments will take center stage!  While it is not necessary to useVerve stamps to enter, we would love to see them if you've got 'em!  To sweeten up the challenge even more, stay tuned to learn how you could win some brand new Verve!

I was thrilled with this month's Dare...I have quite the delicious collection of patterned fact, I had put some out ready to make this card before my trip to the States...then I went to ARCHIVERS!  It was literally worse than being a baby in a candy store.  I told my friend Lynn that her job was to say to me every so often, "Do you really need that?"  I picked up 3 more pads of paper, one of which was this Basicgrey Out of Print (it was actually on my shopping list so yes, I needed it!).

I inked up this sweet sentiment from New Mercies as well as the butterfly image from Chicks Rule for my balsa wood butterfly. I stitched around all the panels to help frame everything. Have you made YOUR project yet?  You have a few more days to link it up!!  I double dog DARE you!! ;)  Here are the deets one last time...
