August 2014 Diva Dare - Day 3

Good morning Verve fans, Christyne here welcoming you to Day 3 of this month's Verve Diva Dare entitled: 

Celebrate Good Times - August Diva Dare

This month's dare is entitled 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 celebration card, I decided to go with a versatile, classic theme: black and white!  I used the Moments Remembered and Peaceful Medallions stamps sets from the recent July release. Since this was a celebration card, I pulled out all the bling: rhinestones, Shine Bright sequins, and glitter!!  Combined with some rich ribbon and this week's Mojo Monday sketch (MOJO358), I arrived at this elegant, yet shabby, card.





Two ways to win prizes for double the fun!


Win a $40 gift voucher to Verve! Take our Celebrate Good Times dare and link your card up to be eligible to win.  Entries must have a celebration theme:  birthday, wedding, anniversary, confirmation, new job, retirement, new baby, new home - anything you can celebrate, be posted 8/8 or later, include at least one Verve product and be linked up to the linky widget by 8pm Mountain on 8/23/14.  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 Verve set of your choice! For another chance to win some new Verve, leave a little comment love on our design team's Celebrate Good Times 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 August 23, 2014.


Winners will be announced on August 24, 2014.
