March 2014 Diva Dare - Day 6

"Do The Polka" March Diva Dare

Welcome to March's Diva Dare!  This month's Dare 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!


Ever seen aqua poppies?  Probably not, but aren't they GORGEOUS?!
I made some pools of aqua with my Gelatos and water and colored up these fabulous flowers from Poppy Birthday and die cut them with their coordinating dies, Build a Poppy Die Set.  That yummy ribbon is from the Pastel Polka Dot Ribbon Collection and there are a few sprinkles of Pastel Sequin Mix on my card for a little sparkle!



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.



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. 

For some extra inspiration, I used Maureen's Viva la Verve March Week 2 Sketch Challenge with Viva la Verve March Week 1 Color Challenge!



Here's on last look at my take on the Diva Dare, Do the Polka!  Can't wait to see what you whip up for all of our Verve challenges this month!


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