May Diva Dare-Day 8




Hey there!  It's Laurie here for another day of Diva Dare!  I have a fun CAS card for you today.  There is still time to play along so here are the details....

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!

(Fun huh? Stars and Stripes!)  Here is my card...


I used the reverse side of the rope (again....kinda hooked on stripes!)  from Strong Anchor in yellow ink.  I added in a sentiment and image from Shining Star.  It's kinda hard to see in the picture, but the stars are full of Star Dust Stickles.  :)  

Now check this out for all the prize details!  I hope you have a chance to play along!
