May Diva Dare-Day 9


Well, hello again Verve fans!  It's Laurie S. here, and I'm so excited to share with you my take on this month's Diva Dare!


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!
 





Okay...you might want to sit down for this as I have shocking news!  I followed the Dare exactly!!  I even created a CAS to honor Diva Laurie W.'s style!!  It's hard to believe, but very true!  :-)  I used striped patterned paper, star rhinestones, some paper pieced flowers and a sentiment (all from the new  Let it Be set)!


I just love this sentiment, don't you?  It's so perfect for sending a friend a little bit of encouragement!
