February 2014 Diva Dare - Day 5

"Perk Up" - February Diva Dare

Welcome to February's Diva Dare!  This month's Dare is entitled "Perk Up."    

What we're daring you to do this month is make a card or project to perk someone up, whether it’s with a warm beverage or just a heartfelt sentiment to brighten someone’s day.  No shortage of options as Verve has some wonderful coffee and tea sets as well as a plethora of uplifting/heartfelt sentiments.

A layered Verve card with yummy ribbon, stamped and embossed vellum, stitched panels, sequin sprinkles, curly twine, and glitter paper is definitely one that perks me up!  

 I adore the new Verve Stamps set, More Than Love!  It has the most beautiful sentiment fonts!  I used the small "smitten" as a scripted pattern on the long background panel and heat embossed the larger sentiment in silver onto a vellum Tagged Rectangle Die.   There a few layers of Wavy Hearts and Heart Quartet Dies with a peek of the Classy Label Die, too.  A fabulous Autumn Elements ribbon bow and a sprinkling of Pastel Sequin Mix finishes off this loving card!

For more inspiration this month, stop in over at Viva la Verve for a new challenge each week!  I used colors from Viva la Verve February 2014 Week 1 and the Week 2 sketch!

Deadline to link your cards is 8PM Mountain on Wednesday, February 26th.  Entries must be posted 2/7 or later, include at least one Verve product, a warm beverage or heartfelt sentiment, and be linked up to the linky widget by 8pm Mountain on 2/26/14.
