November Diva Dare ~ Day 6

"Shape Up", November Diva Dare

Mornin' Verve lovelies!! Andrea coming at you on this glorious Friday (any Friday is glorious, am I right?) 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 we can't wait to see what you create!

Here is my card using this month's dare:



Now, you can get pretty broad with this challenge, I mean any shape is a shape, right? I chose to use Verve's newly released Holiday Treats set stamped on a Tag shape (Verve's A Cut Above Tagged Rectangle die). I added lots of rectangles, a banner and some circles (in the form of flowers and bells). The die cut is from an old K & Co. Christmas tag set and I added a bit of Star Dust Stickles to the floral arrangement she's carrrying...just for a bit of pizzazz. All edges are distressed and I also added a square of burlap behind the images. 




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! -
