July Diva Dare-Day 8

Good morning peeps, it is Teresa and it is my turn to show you my creation.  The divas sure know how to bring on the creativity, don't ya think?  Now for the deets.

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!

I have tackled the dare with a square card, using the Words Cannot Express set and Laurie's  VLV sketch from last Friday.  You can get the details about the sketch and play along with us here.   The Words Cannot Express set is full of heartfelt ways to say thank you or show gratitude.  I have made a glittery heart using thin cardboard like a cereal box and then covered it with SU crystal effects, finishing it off with gorgeous glass glitter.....I luv the bling, you know....hehehehe.  I added a little distressing, stitching, and gorgeous SU cherry cobbler seam ribbon tied to my sentiment tag.  Have a great day and thank you so much for playing along with us...enjoy!
