November Diva Dare ~ Day 5

"Shape Up", November Diva Dare

Hi there! Welcome to Day 5 of our November Diva Dare Challenge! 

This month, we're daring you 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!


I used a patterned paper with circles in it, and those circles have other shapes! The tag die is the Tagged Rectangle Die. I cut a tag out and then stamped the rectangle stamp from Holiday Treats. The sentiment is from Chevron Love.


I also stamped a couple arrows from Chevron Love and layered them behind the tag. I finished my card off with some twine, a button, and some silver pearls!

So there you have it! We'd love for you to join us this month for the Dare! It's such a fun one with so many possibilities! Here's how you can play along:

 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.
Winners will be announced on November 28, 2013.

- Go forth and get inky! We DARE you! -
