May 2014 Diva Dare ~ Day 10

Hi friends, Laurie here sharing my take on this month's Diva Dare!  In honor of the newest release, this month's Dare is entitled "Petals and Wings".    
What we're daring you to do this month is create a card with both a flower and a butterfly on it.

Here's how I answered the dare...


I started by cutting some banners (using the Banner Bundle Die Set) out of patterned paper.  I chose my patterned paper to be the petals part of the challenge.  For the wings part, I embossed and die cut the butterfly form the Die Sidekicks set (using the previously released All Aflutter Die Set).  The sentiment is from the Petals & Wings set.  For embellishment, I added some super sparkly sequins from the Shine Bright Sequin Mix.




Deadline to link your cards is 8PM Mountain on Wednesday, May 21st.  Entries must be posted 5/2 or later,include at least one Verve product, both a flower and a butterfly, and be linked up to the linky widget by 8pm Mountain on 5/21/14.

  26. This is so feminine and quite simply stunning. I love the combination of elements going on with the sequins and stitching and raised up heart and butterfly. It's really some amazing crafty eye candy for sure and I'm totally scraplifting it.
