August Diva Dare - Day 6

Pile On the Sweetness, August Diva Dare
Hello there! Jen here bringing you day four of this month's Diva Dare! I am so excited about this month's challenge! It's super fun and I had a TON of fun creating my card. :)

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 my card:

It didn't take me long to figure out where this card was going to go. Andrea has such a wonderful talent for shabby detailed cards and Christyne's wonderful layers and bright colors brought me to this merging of the two styles. I mixed up Andrea's more muted color palette with a few brighter colors, both ladies have a knack for distressed edges and that's right up my alley so I added that in there. The kraft cardstock and the twine - well that's just me, lol. I hope I did them both justice!! 

Now for the Verve goodies that I used. The stamps set is Brighter Days. I accented it with a flower made from the smallest flower in the Goodness Flowers Die Set which is layered on a bit of twine thread, Signature Ribbon Collection grey seambinding and two flags from the Flag It Die Set.

I used the Mojo Monday #306 sketch for my card.
Now here's the details of the Dare. Be sure to come back tomorrow for some more Dare delights!
