March Diva Dare ~ Day 8


Good morning everyone!  Maureen here as your hostess for Day 8 of our Diva Dare challenge!  We're looking at the styles and blog titles of the Divas this year and first up in the spotlight are the March birthday girls,  Laurie {Just Give Me Stamps} and me {Buttons and Bling}!  I went straight over to Diva Laurie's blog to oogle and drool all over again at her stunning mix of papers and layers.  Then I threw some colourful paper on my desk and started creating my layers with the Banner Bundle Dies, the Flutterby die and matching So Fluttery images.  Laurie used the Classy Label Die during the last release on THIS CARD and I just had to replicate it with the Smile Plain Jane.  Some distressed and stitched layers, some gorgeous Spring Fling seam binding, a button and bling (!) and I think we've got a perfect marriage of my and Laurie's styles :)

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. And what does that mean? There are going to be winners, so you need to get your entries in! We'll announce the winners on Thursday, March 28th. Check below for the down-low on how to participate:

Here are two ways you can win some shiny new Verve!

Eye-catching, stunning, exquisite - as you can gather, I love your card! Thank you for sharing, inspiring and starting my day off with a smile! Hope you have a smile-filled day, as well!

  7. So beautiful! Love your soft colors and all the layers. And of course, the bling on the butterfly! The classy label die is my favorite, it has such a "classy" shape and is perfect for your sentiment.
