April Diva Dare 2012-Day 1

Welcome to Day one of the April Diva Dare!  Here's how our Diva Dare works... following each release, we post a theme we dare you with, and you'll have until May 3 6:00 PM MST 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 we dare you to make a card, project, layout, or whatever fits your stamping style using this month's theme - All Aboard!   It has been Grand Central Station around here lately, Julee gave birth to two beautiful baby boys and has had her hands full!  So I am challenging you to use chipboard, corrugated cardboard, or kraft on your creation or project!  We can't wait to see how you answer the dare!     
Stay tuned to learn how you could win some shiny new Verve!!

This is how I answered the dare....






I have used a piece of scrap cardboard and cut my shape of my tag...I adore tags!   I then used designer papers from Teresa Collins called Spring Fling, this color combo is gorgeous!  I used the Cut Above by Verve Ribbon Banner Die to cut my banner shape, so sweet!  The sentiment is from the Joyful Blooms set, I then cut it out using a small round circle punch.  I added a darling piece of white trim, stitching, and a tiny kraft clothespin.  I finished with a squirt of Mr Huey's Calico White and Piglet Mists.






Here is a close up of the sweet clothespin and the Mr Huey's Mists.
