March 2014 Diva Dare-Day 2

"Do The Polka", March Diva Dare

Good morning peeps and welcome, it is Teresa and I am soooooo excited to share my "Do The Polka" Diva Dare card. 

What we're daring you to do this month is to use polka dots somewhere on your card. Whether you choose to strut your polka dot stamps, paper, ribbon or all of the above, we want to see you do the polka!


I am using today's Mojo Monday Sketch as well as using pre sneak peak Verve release set, called Better Together. We will be having a Verve release this Saturday, March 15. I adore polka dots and reach for them all the time, the cream colored background is stamped with chocolate polka dots...yummy! I have inked the sentiment with markers so that it gives a faded look, I luv it! I added a few canvas spritzed flowers, hemp twine, and buttons to completes my clean layered "Do The Polka" Diva Dare card. I cannot wait to see what you create...sparkle & shine!

  15. Oh now this IS a lovely card. It reminds me of Christmas for some reason! I think it is because I always buy a certain type of mint chocolate for after lunch. Just great.
