April Diva Dare 2012 - Day 9

Hello and Happy Saturday!  I hope you've been enjoying the Diva Dare so far. . .I know I have! 
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!!

For my project, I used Kraft cardstock and some corrugated cardboard.  I started by die cutting the corrugated cardboard with the I Heart U Die Set and the Jotted Heart Die.  Next I used paint daubers to color them and to "splash" some paint across the card base.  After the paint dried, I stamped the polka dot background from Bountiful Backgrounds in black ink.   

I arranged the die cut pieces as well as a scrap piece of scallop border on the card and stamped a piece of a sentiment from Forever In Our Hearts in white craft ink onto the black scallop piece.  I stamped and colored the Fringe Flower Plain Jane with Copic markers, cut it out and added it to the card.  I added a rhinestone brad to the center of the flower and some jute to finish the card off.
