April Diva Dare-Day 2

Good morning Verve fans, Teresa here with you this morning for Day 2 of this month's Diva Dare!   This month we are challenging you to "Bright Blooms and Butterflies", a combination of Diva Charmaine's (Oodabug Alley) and Diva Marisa's (Rosemary Reflections) signature styles. Charmaine often uses wonderful, bright colours on her cards and Marisa uses lots of lowers and butterflies. So this month, we dare you to create a colorful card using either a flower or butterfly image, (or if you'd prefer... a fun die shape) as the focal element. 
I have used today's Mojo Monday Sketch to start and then I went for the bright colored patterned papers.  I used the gorgeous flower from the Surely Goodness set and the matching die to cut it out; Goodness Flowers Die Set.  I used the Plain Jane birthday sentiment Birthday To You.  I scattered a few butterflies with sweet gemstones added and a few matching buttons.  This is how I answered this month's dare, can't wait to see how you answer the dare....have fun!



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 April 12th or later.
    • Be a card or project using bright colours and having a flower and/or butterfly (or other die shape) as your focal point.
    • Use at least one Verve product.
    • Be added to the linky widget before 5pm Mountain on Wednesday, May 1.
  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 April 29th.  A random comment winner will be chosen from all the comments over the course of the Dare.
  3. Winners will be announced on Friday, May 3rd.
- Go forth and get inky! We DARE you! -
