November Diva Dare ~ Day 1

"Shape Up", November Diva Dare

Hello Verve fans!! Marisa here with this month's Diva Dare entitled "Shape Up".

What we're daring you to do this month is to create a card or project including a common shape.  For example:  hexagons, chevrons, arrows, triangles, hearts, stars etc.  Lots of fun ways you can go with this dare and I can't wait to see what you create!

Here is my card using this month's dare:


I used today's VLV sketch by Diva Christyne for my card.  Love this sketch!  The papers are from MME's Love Me paper pack. I used the Jotted Heart die, clear embossed the matching chevron heart on to it and then layered it with a crimped version of my beloved "U" die from the I Heart You die set.  I also added a heart from the Heart Quartet die set and finished it off with a bit of bling.  A few banners from the Pennant Trim die down the side and  some of the delicious, red seam binding from the Truly, Madly, Deeply ribbon collection.  


Deadline to link your cards is 8PM Mountain on Wednesday, November 27th.  Entries must be new (posted 11/8 or later), include at least one Verve product, include a common shape, and be linked up to the linky widget by 8pm Mountain on 11/27/13. 




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


Win a $40 Gift voucher to Verve Stamps! Take our "Shape Up" Dare and link up your card (created November 8th 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.

Win a set of your choice! For another chance to win some new Verve, leave a little comment love on our design team's "Shape Up" Diva Dare posts!  One lucky commenter will win a Verve stamp set of his or her choice, so be sure to tune in each day!  Comment deadline to be entered in our prize drawing is November 27, 2013.
