July Diva Dare - Day 5

It's Amy here today, with Day 5 of our July Diva Dare. 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 use Verve 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!

But first, here's how I answered the dare: 

I used some playful Webster's Pages patterns (from Yacht Club) to create a nostalgic summer scene. I just adore the sweet children pulling their wagons! I added a second and third pattern along the bottom, along with  some twine and a scalloped border. The clouds along the top are die-cut with additional Webster's Pages patterns. I stamped the sentiment, notched the end, and wrapped it around a lollipop stick. I love the large font size of the Life is Good Plain Jane -- it really holds its own on this sentiment-only card!
