Fanspiration Diva Dare ~ Day 9

Good morning Verve fans, Janelle today sharing my fan-inspired card creation with you.  We are almost done with our daily inspiration from the Diva's that "dare" you to show us your new creations inspired by projects made by Verve fans!  You can pick any little Verve project to inspire you, as long as it is not by one of our design team members (or yourself!) and that is why Julee appropriately titles this months Diva Dare theme...Fanspiration!  Join us if you dare!

Okay, you know YOU ALL are fantastic and it was SO much fun to go through the Fan Gallery to get inspired. I'm just bursting with fun ideas, so thank YOU! In the end I just kept coming back to this May 2012 Viva La Verve number by Gini Cagle {Beadz} 

She had so much fun with die cuts that I couldn't resist. The background is cut out with the Flourished Trim Die by measuring in 3/16 of an inch around all the edges and marking the center to align the die. It worked perfectly! I've also managed to use the Mini Classy Label Die, Pointed Flower Die, and Pennant Trim Die... all Vervey goodness. My images are stamped from the Lean on Me and Borderline sets. I'm most happy when I can get my hands messy with ink and paint so I brushed many acrylics, oil pastels, colored pencils and my new tool, a Wite-Out pen, until I just couldn't find another spot to messy.

So thank you Gini for inspiring me! Now how about YOU, Verve fans?

How fun is this Dare?  Don't know where to start?   Head over to the Verve Fan Gallery to peruse some projects, pick one then join in the are the details...
