April 2014 Diva Dare~Day 11

Happy Friday everyone! I hope everyone is having a fantastic day! Jen here to bring you day 11 of the April Diva Dare! Our theme this month is:

"Little Things" - April Diva Dare

Welcome to April's Diva Dare!  In honour of Spring's arrival (in some parts of North America anyway!), this month's Dare is entitled "Little Things".    The challenge is to create a baby or kid themed card, how fun!


I was inspired by Laurie's gorgeous sketch for today's Viva La Verve challenge. I did make a couple of small changes but overall Laurie's sketch is where I started. To get started on my card I stamped Emery Plain Jane on white cardstock and colored him in with Spectrum Noir markers. I used a sentiment from To The Moon for the top that I die cut with the Flag It Die Set. After distressing everything subtlety and separating the layers with foam tape I was done. 







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.   



During this month's Diva Dare, there are 2 prizes up for grabs!


Win a $40 Gift voucher to Verve Stamps! Take our "Little Things" Dare and link up your card (created April 4th 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 "Little Things" 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 April 23, 2014.


Winners will be announced on April 24, 2014.
