March 2014 Diva Dare ~ Day 4

"Do The Polka", March Diva Dare

Hello Dare Challengers! It's Janelle today with my take on our March challenge for "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! 

When someone says polka, I'm all in! lol


At least when I'm creating a card, because this girl hasn't ever danced the polka. Any way, I'm sneaking a peek at a new Verve set releasing sometime soon, eeep, called Better Together! I've got definite dots in the Polka Dot ribbon from the Polka Dot Basic Ribbon Collection, sneaky dots from the new release set, and crazy dots from the minute text print on the pattern paper. You could even say I have sparkly dots from rhinestones, too!




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 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.

Win a set of your choice! For another chance to win some new Verve, leave a little comment love on our design team's "Do The Polka" Diva Dare posts!  One lucky commenter will win a Verve stamp set of his or her choice, so be sure to tune in each day!  Comment deadline to be entered in our prize drawing is March 26, 2014.

Winners will be announced on March 27, 2014. 

- Go forth and get inky! We DARE you! -

  8. this is really pretty. Love all of the reds and the touch of black/white polka dot. The patterned paper is tattered and looks great. I see everybody stitching on their cards but I'm not that brave yet. Looks good on the cards.
