March 2014 Diva Dare ~ Day 3

"Do The Polka", March Diva Dare

Morning Verve friends and welcome to March's Diva Dare!  It's Andrea here with you today on this glorious 'almost Spring' day! I'm sharing with you this month's Dare which is entitled "Do The Polka".  
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!  So, so easy...using Verve's Polka Dot ribbon collection...I've decided to use that as my focal point:



And....I'm peeking Verve's newest stamp set, this one is called 'Better Together'. I simply love Julee's style of mixing fonts on one sentiment. I also adore these darling rustic arrows included in the set too. I stamped them on an Occasion Frame die after I lightly inked the edges with some Vintage Photo distress ink. I added some copper accents, flowers, twine, a doily and wrapped it up, package style, with Verve's Polka Dot Basics collection





Deadline to link your cards is 8PM Mountain on Wednesday, March 26th.  Entries must be posted 3/7 or later, include at least one Verve product, polka dots, and be linked up to the linky widget by 8pm Mountain on 3/26/14.   



During this month's Diva Dare, there are 2 prizes up for grabs!
Win a $40 Gift voucher to Verve Stamps! Take our "Do The Polka" Dare and link up your card (created March 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.
