April 2014 Diva Dare~Day 10

"Little Things" - April Diva Dare

Morning Verve friends...it's Andrea here with you today and I want to welcome you to April's Diva Dare!  In honor of Spring's arrival this month's Dare is entitled "Little Things".  

What we're daring you to do this month is to create a baby or kids themed card. I decided that this cute little monkey from the 'To the Moon' set would pair up perfectly with some 'Wander' paper to make a darling little baby boy card:



I stamped the sweet little monkey and colored him in with Prismacolor pencils. The sentiment is stamped on a Mini Bookplate die and matted on it's coordinating shape. The banners are made with A Cut Above dies Banner Bundles die set.  I added the Pennant Trim die down the vertical edge of the striped paper panel. I accented with lots of Liquid Pearls, a button, twine and a metal edge tag. And I added a little hand stitching, as well.
I used this week's Mojo Monday sketch as my design:




Deadline to link your cards is 8PM Mountain on Wednesday, April 23rd.  Entries must be posted 4/4 or later, include at least one Verve product, be a baby or kids themed card, and be linked up to the linky widget by 8pm Mountain on 4/23/14.
