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.   


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


Win a $40 Gift voucher to Verve Stamps! Take our "Perk Up" Dare and link up your card (created February 7th 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.
