July Diva Dare-Day 2

Tattered Pages, July Diva Dare

Happy Monday Verve fans, it is Teresa and we have kicked off this month's Diva Dare and it is called "Tattered Pages"...luv that title!

Julee (Poetic Artistry) and myself (Paperie Blooms)are the spotlight divas this month! Julee has created countless, uplifting sentiments which have become one of Verve's trademarks, and if you follow my blog you know I luv distressing and "shabbiness" on my 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!  

First off, I started with today's Mojo Monday sketch; head over to the Mojo Monday Blog and play along with us! I went all out on the shabby/distressing element of my card, totally luv this look! I layered, tore, scrunched, and curled my card to the perfect shabby look. I luv that Julee creates scripture stamps and what is more uplifting than scripture? I reached for the Plain Jane Psalm 37:4, I stamped it and then cut it out using the Classy Label Die by Verve. I added a Wavy Heart Die by Verve to the left corner. The positive scripture and all the shabby goodness complete the dare for me this month! I look forward to how you answer this month's Tattered Pages Verve Diva Dare! 


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.
