September Diva Dare ~ Final Day!

Hi everyone!  It's Jackie here and thanks to a major mix up on my part I am bringing you the final day of the September Diva Dare!  You see, I confused my post day and completely missed it so I am the cabooose on the September Diva Dare train!

This month, we've come up with a fun challenge, we DARE you to 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!



I had the PLEASURE of CASEing my friend, Charmie, or Charmaine to all of you!  Charmaine has such a fun style, always using fun colors and layouts!  It was a toughie trying to choose a card, but I finally settled on this card.  I just loved the layout and all the pink she used!  Hope I did Charmie proud!



So I followed the sketch almost exactly!  LOVE how Charmaine overlapped two of the Tagged Rectangles!  I kept my overall color pink, but added in some of my fave Chocolate Brown.  I also changed up the image, using my favorite flower and sentiment from Sunny Days.  I stamped the flower twice, cutting out a portion of the second and popping it up for dimension.  An ivory linen thread tied button tops the flower.  I used some chocolate crinkled seam binding for my bow.  Some machine stitching and some scallops finish the card!

Well, that's all from me today!  I hope I've inspired you to play along!  There's still time!
