August Diva Dare ~ Day 4

Pile On the Sweetness, August Diva Dare
Hello Dare Divas!  Janelle here today to bring you Day 4 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!  


So here's my card for the Dare...



Our Diva's this month inspire me with clusters of goodies, bling and mellow colors. I tried to stay as close to what inspires me from Andrea and Christyne so I used the lacy flowers and leaves from Making a Statement along with the scalloped frame and sentiment from the same set. The sweetness of these stamps are that they have coordinating dies! Use Loopy Blooms Die Set and Rounded Scallop Frame Die. Use can also use one of the many Banner, Banner Bundle or Flag It dies to make the double-ended banners. Just use a die wider than the strip of paper and cut only the ends on both sides. Layers upon layers are finished off with some black liquid pearls.

I used the Mojo Monday #306 sketch for my card today! It's perfect for the layered theme of this month's Diva Dare.


Now here's the details of the Dare. Be sure to come back tomorrow for some more Dare delights!
