May 2014 Diva Dare - Day 5

Good Morning! Christyne here welcoming you to Day 5 of this month's Diva Dare 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. 


Flowers and butterflies are two of my favorite card elements and there are so many Verve selections to choose from that it was difficult to find a place to begin with this challenge.  I ultimately chose the refreshed Petals and Wings set as the lines are soft and they really gave me an "early spring" vibe.  I paired the beautiful images from this set  and the coordinating Petals and Wings Dies with this week's Mojo Monday sketch (#344), incorporating a few other unique elements including the Die Sidekicks stamps set, Sweet Scalloped Tag Die, the Flag It Die Set, the Rounded Frame Scallop Die and the Shine Bright Sequins Mix.  I hope you are all feelin' some spring in your local weather lately, as it is certainly welcome in my neck of the woods!!



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.

  23. These are not at all my go-to colors but you've done a great job with the combination and after seeing this I might try to branch out into greens and yellows myself.
