March 2014 Diva Dare - Day 8

"Do The Polka", March Diva Dare

Hello Verve Fans!! Christyne here bringing you some inspiration for Day 8 of the March challenge, "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! 

 To answer this month's dare, I went a little polka-wild.  I found a bunch of polka dot papers and paired them with Verve's new Better Together stamp sent since it has that awesome dot background stamp and chevron accents.  I combined all of my dots with this week's Mojo Monday sketch (#337), using the Banner Bundle die set to cut out the main panel.  I accented this panel with some DP stars cut with the Starry Die.  Because all of these polka dots just weren't enough for this card, I added a big pop of ribbon from the Red, White, and Beautiful Ribbon Collection.  There you have it...polka-crazy!!



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! -
