May 2014 Diva Dare - Day 7

"Petals and Wings" - May Diva Dare
Welcome to Day 7 of May's Diva Dare!  In honour 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 my take on this month's Diva Dare!  It's getting close to the end of the school year so I had to sneak in something from Teachers Count to go along with the flowers and butterflies!

Our school secretary asked me to make a special card for a retiring high school counselor.  I'm always excited to make teacher/educator cards because it means I can ink up Teachers Count again!  My inspiration started with the chalkboard paper and then I started adding notebook and ledger paper to the layers.  Primary colours seemed the perfect palette for the Petals & Wings flowers and the So Fluttery butterfly.  A plaid Pennant Trim Die banner, a splash of green
Pastel Polka Ribbon Collection, and a sweet mini bulldog clip makes this card recipient ready!

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!

I was additionally inspired by Janelle's fabulous Viva la Verve sketch this week!
