September Diva Dare - Day 1

Hi Verve fans!  Those of you that follow the Diva Dare Challenges (held right here on the Verve Stamps blog) are probably scratching your heads wondering why we are having another Diva Dare Challenge without first having a release!  Normally, the Diva Dare does follow a release but we are breaking with tradition this month...completely throwing caution to the wind...and getting inky with our favorite Verve stamps regardless of protocol!  This month, we are sharing projects made with any previously released Verve stamp set...all while following this month's theme!

What is that theme?  I'm so glad you asked!  :-)  This month, we DARE you to Case-a-Diva!  No, not quesadilla (teeheee!), Case-a-Diva!  With nineteen Divas (see the photos and links on the right sidebar), the inspiration is vast!  For those of you that are wondering...CASE means to copy and share everything.  And that is just fancy talk for copying!  What you copy is up to you!  It can be a layout, color scheme, or even something more subtle like a certain embellishment cluster!  

You will find the links to all the Diva's blogs on the right sidebar, or you can visit their individual Verve galleries!

Stay tuned for info on how you could win some brand new Verve goodies!

This is how I answered the Dare...

I CASE'd the fabulous Maureen!  What a joy it was spending time in her gallery!  That girl can put colors together I tell ya!  Wooowie!  And the fabby sketches she comes up with, wow!  Oh, have you seen all the uber cool colored thread she uses on many of her projects??  I literally wrote fun colored thread on my shopping list...just because of her!  :-)

The card I chose to CASE is this gorgeous round beauty!  I absolutely adore her I kept that completely the same!  Well, except for the little tag...but that was just because I ran out of room on my circle!  Teehehee!  I used the Bountiful Harvest set (which happens to be 25% off right now!!) to make a Fall/Halloween themed card!
