November Diva Dare - Day 7

Hello Verve fans!  Christyne here bringing you some more inspiration for the November Diva Dare - 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!

For my card, I decided to highlight the chevron shape or pennant angles.  I decided to go monochromatic to highlight the shape's bold flair.  The chevron background was paired with the bold chevron frame from the Unto Us set and a sentiment from the Holiday Treats set.  I also used the snowflake from this set  and the Reindeer fun dies as a highlight since it has some more awesome chevron-type angles.  I added a little pennant drama as well with the banner bundle die set since it is chevron-y.  Finally, I added some crisp white seam binding from the Signature Ribbon Collection.  This card also features this week's Viva la Verve sketch by Teresa Kline (November 2013 week 4).




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!
