April Diva Dare ~ Day 6

Happy Wednesday, Verve fans! It's Amy here, and I'm excited for a new Diva Dare. The projects so far have been fabulous! Here's what we're up to this time:

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 happen to love using chipboard, corrugated cardboard, and kraft on my cards, so I incorporated all three into my shabby creation:




I used a Jillibean Soup corrugated cardboard piece to frame the little girl image (from Prima's Nature Garden 6x6 paper pad), then accented at the top with two chipboard hearts and a sentiment flag. "Celebrate today" is from the Joyful Blooms set. Other details include a twill bow, a border of fabric roses, some crochet trim, buttons, and small touches of silver glass glitter (which sparkles sooooo beautifully in real life!). Everything is mounted onto a kraft card base. Chipboard - check, corrugated cardboard - check, kraft - check. (But don't feel obligated to use all three - one works just as well!) 


Want to know how you can win some fabulous new VERVE GOODIES?

Play along with us and link up your new All Aboard creation (posted April 20 or later) to the linky widget on THIS POST before 6:00PM MST on Thursday May 3.  One lucky stamper will win a $30.00 gift certificate to the Verve Store.
