April Diva Dare 2012 - Day 7

Hello Verve lovelies...It's Andrea checkin' in and I'm here to share with you my take on this month's Diva 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 the Verve nest lately, Julee and Mark have welcomed two beautiful baby boys into their family and have had their hands full!  So on that note, we are 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!!

I used sweet Diva Amber's trick to mat my Ribbon Banner die. If you didn't catch that one, check it out here...what a super helpful hint! I stamped the sentiment from Purely Sentimental on a piece of glittered chipboard and attached that to the Ribbon Banner die. (I extended the banner die just a tad to make it look like it's coming down from the top...the seam is being hidden by the chipboard panel.) I then stamped the Fringe Flower stamp twice, once in green and once in blue. I fussy cut out each design and layered them with a pop dot. I added a bit of Star Dust Stickles to each petal, glued on a pearl brad and attached it to the sentiment panel. Lastly, I made the flower cluster, attaching to some beautiful blue seam binding.
