May 2014 Diva Dare ~ Day 9

"Petals and Wings" - May Diva Dare
Hi there, it's Janelle today and welcome to May's Diva Dare!  In honor of the newest release, this month's Dare is entitled "Petals and Wings".    


Since it's a Wednesday I even dropped into my card one rounded hill to help us roll on into the weekend, but first here is our day and my take on this challenge...

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


My card took the dare literally as in, I have "a" butterfly and "a" flower from the Wings and Petals Stamp Set.

Each were stamped and cut out with it's coordinating die from Petals and Wings Die Set. The sentiment from Wings and Petals is stamped and die cut with Flag It Die Set. The stem and petals is from the Build a Poppy Die Set. I used Gelatos around the background after hand sketching a border and then did some more coloring on each element.

Have a wonderful Wednesday! Hope you join in the fun here at the May Diva Dare!



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.
