March Diva Dare - Day 3


Good morning!! Amber here with Day 3 of the fabulous Diva Dare! This month, we have two Diva birthdays so we're celebrating with a theme to match their blog titles! Laurie is Just Give Me Stamps and Maureen is Buttons and Bling! I gotta tell you, I love BOTH of those blog titles and was anxious to get started!


I created a trio of cards featuring the new Plain Janes and the large open flower from Surely Goodness. I used this week's Viva la Verve! sketch for the layout! The hardest part was coming up with the color combinations and then the rest just came together.




I also used the Pennant Trim die and the Flag it Die Set as well. The rhinestones are from Michaels and the buttons and twin from PTI. 

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!  
  1. Win a $40 Verve gift certificate! Play along with our March Diva Dare and link up your creation to the linky widget entry form.  A winner will be chosen by random draw. To be eligible, your entry must:
    • Be a new creation - posted March 8th or later.
    • Be inspired by a Verve card or project combining Diva Maureen and Diva Laurie's style.
    • Use at least one Verve product.
    • Be added to the linky widget on the Day 1 post before 5pm Mountain on Wednesday,  March 27.
  2. Win a Verve set of your choosing! Leave a little shout-out for the Divas in the comments section as we post our answers to this month's dare weekdays through March 25th.  A random comment winner will be chosen from all the comments over the course of the Dare.

- Go forth and get inky! We DARE you! -
