May 2014 Diva Dare - Day 11

Hi everyone! It's Jen here with 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 what I came up with:


When I set about making my card I knew exactly who it was going to be for. My daughter has a birthday party to go tonight for a friend of hers who is turning 10. They both love bright bold funky colors and all things girly so I started with some fun bright paper from Doodlebug's Sugar Shoppe paper pad. I combined Verve's awesome Birthday To You Plain Jane with Petals and Wings stamps and Wings and Petals dies. I added buttons to the flower centers and a bit of tiny twinkles here and there for sparkle!



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.   
  
      

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


Win a $40 Gift voucher to Verve Stamps! Take our "Petals and Wings" Dare and link up your card (created May 2nd 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.

  25. I love this. I frequently use smaller mats to show more of the background papers versus the card base but I love how much of the card base you've left peaking out here. The cyan is also a brilliant contrast and I think just totally makes the card.
