March Diva Dare - Day 5


Hey there!  It's Laurie here!  Today is my first post on the Verve blog and I am pretty excited about that!  I am here with another card for the Diva Dare.  This month's Dare is to make a card inspired by Laurie's blog, Just Give Me Stamps and Maureen's blog, Buttons and Bling.  

I decided the best route for me was to go and CASE one of these talented ladies.  So I picked THIS card of Laurie's and got to work.  Here is what I came up with...


This gorgeous sentiment is from Verve's new set called Surely Goodness!  LOVE!  I am pretty proud of all these layers here!  (Not my norm!) And then I added in a little twine ribbon and a dot of bling too!  :)





To get your wheels a turnin', the Divas will be posting their Diva Dare creations using our newly released products right here, each weekday, for the next two weeks.  Winners will be announced on Thursday, March 28th.  

Finally, noted below are two ways you can win some shiny new Verve!

  3. OH WOW, I love this card! It's beautiful, love the layers, bling but most of all the quote and the font! This saying reminds me of books written by ' Debbie 'Macomber', she writes terrific Christmas books with these 3 in them, hysterical books!
    Thank you for such a great start to my morning, with this lovely card and blog post!
