March Diva Dare - Day 6


Hi there Verve fans!  Laurie S. here, and I'm excited to share my take on this month's Diva Dare theme - "Just Give Me Stamps, Buttons and Bling"!!  This month, "we dare" you to create a card combining Diva Laurie (Just Give Me Stamps (hey, that's me :-)) and Diva Maureen's (Buttons and Bling) styles.  For insight into their styles and inspiration galore, you can find my Verve creations here and Diva Maureen's Verve creations here.


I'll admit it, this was not a tough challenge for me!  LOL!  I mean, I just had to make a card using my usual style combined with some goodies that Maureen is known for (and I LOVE her big, puffy grosgrain bows and use of embellishments)!!  I used a couple of sentiments from the new So Fluttery set, combined with the Scroll Plain Jane, Scroll Die, & Jotted Heart Die!  Oh, and lots of embellishments!  :-)


Has that got your wheels a turnin'? The Divas are going to be posting their Diva Dare creations using our newly released products right here, each weekday, for a total of two weeks. Why, do tell? There are going to be winners!  We'll announce the winners on Thursday, March 28th.
