April Diva Dare 2012-Day3

It's day 3 of the Diva Dare, Tosh here, and I have the privilege of sharing with you today, how I interpreted the challenge.

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!!



I love working with Corrugated Cardboard, so I used a piece to attach a sentiment from the Verve Joyful Blooms set. This set is filled with sweet little sentiments for just about any occasion. I used "celebrate today", because I feel that it's such a versatile sentiment. It can be used for any celebration: Birthday, Graduation, Engagement, or a milestone or special event.

Now, I wish I could take credit for this sketch, because seriously, I fell in love with it when I saw it. But all the credit has to go to Shannan for this week's Viva la Verve sketch found HERE. I just added some paper and embellishments.

I had made the flower a couple of weeks ago, and it fit beautifully in the sketch. (It's made with burlap, organza fabric, some fiber paper, a little lace trim, and a fabric rolled rose.

That's it for my project. I now challenge you to this month's dare!! ;)
