July Diva Dare ~ Day 1

Tattered Pages, July Diva Dare

Hello Verve fans!! Marisa here with this month's Diva Dare entitled "Tattered Pages".

This month's dare pays tribute to Julee (Poetic Artistry), owner and creator of Verve Stamps and Diva Teresa (Paperie Blooms).  Julee has created countless, uplifting sentiments which have become one of Verve's trademarks, and Teresa knows how to rock distressing and "shabbiness" on her cards.  So what we're daring you to create this month is a card using an uplifting sentiment and some distressing and/or shabby element to it.  Kind of like an encouraging card you have received which you have read so many times the edges are a bit tattered.  Just remember to use at least one Verve product on your creation!  

Here is my card using this month's dare:

I started out with some Classic K McKenna paper from K & Company and just had to use this fabulous sentiment from Let It Be.  It's such a wonderful reminder of how faith can get you through seemingly insurmountable situations.  The fishtail banner was created by using the largest die from the Banner Bundle die set, and the yummy raspberry coloured seam binding from the Spring Fling ribbon collection.  A touch of lace, twine and some distressing brought in Teresa's side of this month's dare.


Deadline to link your cards is 8PM Mountain on Wednesday, July 31stEntries must be new (posted 7/12 or later), include at least one Verve product, an uplifting sentiment, and some distressing or shabbiness and be linked up to the linky widget by 8pm Mountain on 7/31/13.

During this month's Diva Dare, there are 2 prizes up for grabs!

Win a $40 Gift voucher to Verve Stamps! Take our Tattered Pages Dare and link up your card (created July 12th or later) to the linky widget below to be eligible to win.  One participant will be randomly selected to win the gift voucher.  You can enter as many times as you like, but each card needs to be in a separate post.
