July Diva Dare Day 10

Hello Verve fans!! It's Laurie W. bringing you Day 3 of 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's how I answered the dare:

I'm not going to lie.  This was a challenge for me.  I am usually a CAS girl.  I look around and see the all these gorgeous distressed and layered projects and I am always in awe of these girls!  So this is my attempt at layering and distressing and even a seam binding bow!  I used one of my most favorite sentiments from Verve's set Surely Goodness. I added in some twine and a wood button and even a few pearls.  OH and I added in a banner border on the side too!  :)  I hope I did these fabulous Diva's proud!  :)  

Deadline to link your cards is 8PM Mountain on Wednesday, July 31st.  Entries 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 here 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.
