May 2014 Diva Dare ~ Day 8

"Petals and Wings" - May Diva Dare

Hello Verve fans and welcome to May's Diva Dare!  It's Andrea here with your today and in honor of the newest Verve release, this month's Dare is entitled "Petals and Wings".  Not too hard for many of us and we add these elements to our cards on a regular basis, but now when you do, you have a chance to win some shiny new Verve!

What we're daring you to do this month is create a card with both a flower and a butterfly on it. 



I used stamps from Verve's new release, this set is called Petals and Wings. I stamped 2 sizes of butterflies and cut them out with the Wings and Petals dies set, then stamped the flower image and middle. I added some liquid pearls to both designs and mounted them with dimensionals. I also sprinkled the butterfly images with some Star Dust Stickles to give them a bit of sparkle. (Love me some sparkle!) The paper is from Maja Design and I added a bit of vintage lace to the outer edges for a little softness. Lastly, I added some pearl flourishes.




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.

Win a set of your choice! For another chance to win some new Verve, leave a little comment love on our design team's "Petals and Wings" 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 May 21, 2014.

Winners will be announced on May 22, 2014. 

- Go forth and get inky! We DARE you! -
