May Diva Dare - Day 4



Good morning Verve fans, it is Teresa and it is mine turn to share my take on this months Verve Diva Dare.  I sure hope you will join us for the fun, you know there are prizes to be won...woohoo!

The Challenge...
Stars & Stripes May Diva Dare

This month's dare pays tribute to Diva Amber's (Stamping Scrapbooker) military service and Diva Laurie Willison's (Soapbox Creations) wonderful use of stripes on her cards.  So we're daring you to create a card using stars and/or stripes.  While the title may conjure up visions of red, white and blue any stars and stripes will do! If you're feeling pretty in pink, go for it! Just remember to use at least one Verve product on your creation!  If you want to get really daring, you can add the extra challenge of making it a CAS card with stars and/or stripes, as that is Diva Laurie's signature style.  However, that is not a requirement, just an optional twist to the Dare if you're feeling daring!

This is how I answered the dare....

I went with a favorite color combo and used a sweet printed chipboard star, luv these!  I used a combination of patterned papers with stripes.  The Verve set I reached for was Let It Be, this is a must have set; lots of versatile sentiments and sweet flowers.  I did not choose the CAS option, I did however tone down the distressing and shabby look.  I kept my luv for lace, sponging, and a mixed patterned turned down distressed corner.  I had a blast creating my Diva Dare card, I hope you have as much fun while in your creating zone too!
