April Diva Dare - Day 8

Hey there, Diva Dare fans! It's such a fun challenge this month with our Diva duo Charmaine and Marisa to look to for inspiration. How have you been dared in the challenge so far? It's a delightful combination with these two talented Divas and this is how I took the dare.

It all started with the trim. I tell ya my Scalloped Trim Trio Die Set has been missing in action so when I found it just in time for today, the rest of my card was wrapped around it. I'm so happy to have my Trim Trio back. I pulled out some pattern paper from the Miss Caroline Dolled Up paper pad by My Mind's Eye and layered it with some Night of Navy cardstock. The papers were layered and paper pierced where I then added my two Circle Trim dies. {happy grin}

The largest die from the Banner Bundle Set was used for the sentiment panel stamped in Tuxedo Black from the Surely Goodness Set. The So Fluttery butterfly is also stamped in Tuxedo Black and colored with Copic markers then fussy cut out. The next part is a little silly. I wanted to test out the flowers from the Loopy Blooms Die Set so I cut them out from white copy paper. I like the thin look to them and added enamel dots from the MME Honey Love set. I added the twine last, navigating all the flowers like a butterfly and strategically gluing it down in three spots. My card is definitely dolled up. 

My card is inspired by the Mojo Monday sketch 290 and loosely resembles it because those flowers and butterfly had a mind of their own.

Now it's time for you to take this dare to your crafty space and you know if you do there are two ways you can win some shiny new Verve!  Yay!
