August 2014 Diva Dare - Day 10

Hello, Friends! Amber here! Long time no blog:) Just getting settled in to my new home here in Washington and have had a little trouble tracking down my mojo. Have you seen it? It's still missing so if you see it, please send it back home, ha!

So this month, our Diva Dare is to Celebrate Good Times! 
Verve is turning 7 this month and we’d love to see your celebration cards.  Think wedding, birthday, anniversary… anything that brings the confetti out!


For my card, I pulled out my Peaceful Medallions and Poppy Birthday sets. I got some new Impress Fresh Inks this week in coral and mint, so I knew that's what color combo I wanted to go with. I stamped the largest medallion in coral ink and then a smaller medallion in mint. The three gold medallions are gold embossed, and then the smallest medallions are again stamped in coral Fresh Ink. I scattered some sequins randomly. The orange sequins are from a multi pack I got at Michaels, and the gorgeous shiny sequins are from the Shine Bright collection from Verve. The scalloped frame is the Rounded Scallop Frame. 



My card is loosely based on this week's new Viva la Verve sketch! Pop on over to the VLV Sketch Blog to play along with the sketch.

The sentiment is from Poppy Birthday. Well that's all I have to share today, hope you can get inky today and play along! 

 

Two ways to win prizes for double the fun!
