March Diva Dare - Day 11



Hello everyone, it's Christyne here hosting Day 11 of the March Diva Dare.  March is almost over and I feel like I've been waiting forever to show you all my March Diva Dare creation!  This month we are spotlighting the fabulous divas Laurie Schmidlin (Just Give Me Stamps) and Maureen Plut (Buttons and Bling).  Combining the themes from both blogs, we get "Just Give Me Stamps, Buttons, & Bling!"  Here are my stamps, buttons, and bling!

I decided to use a bunch of different shaped layers as a nod to Laurie since I just love how she always makes that work so well.  From Maureen, I wanted to highlight her bows that are always so bold and perfectly fluffed with a little touch of twine and of course, a button!  The doilie is a steal from both women and one of my favorites as well, so I just had to use one!  I added some bright colors from the My Mind's Eye paper pad Ooh La La for Her, and of course some bling in the form of rhinestones and shiny silver brads.  From the fabulous new Verve release, I used the Beautiful PJ and the Scalloped Trio Trop die, as well as two colors of seam binding from the Spring Fling collection.  

The Divas are almost done posting their Diva Dare creations.  Monday, March 25 will be our last inspiration piece for March so be sure you don't miss it. Additionally, you can catch up with the previous creation postings using the list to the right.  Why, do tell?
