August Diva Dare - Day 9

This month's dare pays tribute to Diva Andrea (Ewen Style), and Diva Christyne (Stampin' with Sugar).  Both Divas are known for the wonderful way they can add layer upon layer on a card.  So what we're daring you to create this month is a card using lots of layers.   

If you want to kick this month's dare up a notch, you can add a flower cluster as per Diva Andrea, or go with a "sweet" theme as per Diva Christyne's blog name "Stamping with Sugar".  These are not required elements, but fun options should you wish to use them.  Just remember to use at least one Verve product on your creation!  


My card for you today features the Every Season PJ combined with a flower cluster for Andrea using flowers from the Let it Be stamp set. I obviously had a great time with this dare, piling on all the layers using this week's Mojo Monday sketch (307). Among the layers, I used many Verve accents such as the Dreamy Leaves dies and seam binding from the Polka dot ribbon collection, the Black Beauty ribbon collection, and the Signature ribbon collection. I hope you all have as much fun piling on the layers as I do!




 Deadline to link your cards is 8PM Mountain on Wednesday, August 28th.  Entries must be new (posted 8/9 or later), include at least one Verve product, include multiple layers, and be linked up to the linky widget by 8pm Mountain on 8/28/13.

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

Win a $40 Gift voucher to Verve Stamps! Take our "Pile on the Sweetness" Dare and link up your card (created August 9th 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.
