August Diva Dare ~ Day 3

Pile On the Sweetness, August Diva Dare
Hello friends!  Maureen here today to bring you Day 3 of this month's "Pile on the Sweetness" Diva Dare.

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!  


Here's how I answered the dare...


I've combined lots of layers with some super sweet papers, some lace, ribbon, pins and a flower!  After visiting both Divas' blogs, I was inspired to create a baby girl card...can't get any sweeter than that, right?  In keeping with my favourite (at the mo') Chalkboard technique, I paired up a couple of sentiments from To the Moon with the Occasions Frame and matching On Occasion  frame image.  I love the way the sentiment fonts make it look like one big sentiment, but it was made with two!  I used the flower from On Occasion to make a two layered flower to tuck under the chalkboard.  I finished off with some hot pink Truly Madly Deeply ribbon to add a girlish pop! Ready for the Dare Deets?
 Deadline to link your cards is 8PM Mountain on Wednesday, August 28thEntries 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.

  26. Love how you have included loops and scallops lots of places: the frame on the chalkboard sentiment, the lace, the petals of the flowers, the border around the big circle. It all coordinates so well.
