August Diva Dare-Day 7

Welcome to the August Diva Dare!  Hi, it is Teresa and I have to tell ya, I luv this months dare!  I try to send as many cards out as I have time.  When this months dare was introduced to us, diva Maureen shared that she was sending her card to a Verve customer and blog friend, Janelle Hayes.  I encourage you to go to her blog and read all about her story, it is uplifting and gives a tremendous amount of hope!  Thank you Maureen for sharing about Janelle and thanks to Janelle for being a trooper and making my day a little brighter.  My card is going out to you.!

For those of you that are new to this challenge, here is how it works...following each release, we will post a theme that 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's theme is Sending Some Sunshine!  If you all are anything like me, you have tons of cards sitting at home all piled up!  I thought it would be fun to make an uplifting & cheerful card and actually send it to someone!  There's nothing like opening your mailbox and seeing a handmade card...especially with some of Verve's encouraging sentiments on it!  :-)

So, we DARE you to make an uplifting and encouraging card AND send it to someone in need of a little pick-me-up!
 

I went with pinks and rose colors, so sweet and comforting, I used the darlin flower from the Sunny Days set.  I heat embossed them and then colored in lightly with copics and some sponging, added the cutest leaves evahhh to them and popped them up.  The sentiment is from Words of Wisdom set which is also heat embossed.  That is it from me, I do encourage you to send your wonderful handmade created cards to others, it is a great way to spread love and sunshine to others!
