September Diva Dare - Day 7

Hello Verve fans!  Christyne here, sharing with you today how I answered this month's Diva Dare! 

So what we're daring you to create this month is a card or project using inspiration from a tic-tac-toe board. For example: x’s and o’s, hugs & kisses, squares, circles, grids, you get the idea. 




Wow, this month's Diva Dare was a bit of a challenge for me.  I decided to use Verve's So Fluttery stamp set with all of those uplifting, floating sentiments.  Using Verve's Mini Classy Labels dies and Mini Vintage Oval dies, I was able to combine these sentiments into my stitched tic-tac-toe grid along with some of the adorable butterflies from this set.  I added some touches of velum in my grid as well as behind my butterflies using the Flutterby die. Finally, pearl and glittery embellishments were added for some bling!!

I hope your creative juices are flowing for this dare!   Here's some info on how you can play along:

Deadline to link your cards is 8PM Mountain on Wednesday, September 25th.  Entries must be new (posted 9/6 or later), include at least one Verve product, include inspiration from a tic-tac-toe board, and be linked up to the linky widget by 8pm Mountain on 9/25/13.
