March Diva Dare - Day 9

Hey there! It's Jen S. here and I'm so excited to by sharing my first post here on the Verve blog. :) I'm sharing my take on this month's 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.

To get started on my project I took a stroll around both Laurie's and Moe's blog and decided I need to incorporate the not only buttons and bling but a bit of brightly colored paper and distressed/sponged edges and ribbon inspired by both ladies. :) 

My card has a whole lot of Vervey goodness throughout so here are the details... I started with a sentiment from So Fluttery and I die cut it with an oval. Then I went Verve die crazy layering the Classy Label Die behind my oval, two little Charming Banner Dies under the buttons and the Flourish Trim Die as the base for my bling. :) To finish it off I used a bit of Stormy Skies seam binding ribbon to make a little bow above the sentiment. The papers I used are from My Mind's Eye Collectable: Memorable 6x6 pad, Bazzill's kraft cardstock and the white cardstock is all mixed up in my storage file right now after an 8 year old invasion so I can only speculate where it's from but I'm pretty sure it's Choice Snow White cardstock.
