August 2014 Diva Dare ~ Day 5

Celebrate Good Times - August Diva Dare

Welcome to August's Diva Dare!  It's Andrea here with you today, celebrating Verve's legacy of charming, heartfelt and timeless stamps in the form of this month's dare 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! I decided to add a bit of confetti to my project...in the form of some Shine Bright Sequins! Of course, there's some vintage aspect as well...


 I pulled out Verve's latest release stamp set, Moments Remembered. I thought that the 'Celebrate' verse looked just fine on it's own, surrounded by Julee's sketch from this week's Mojo Monday. I added some distressing to the paper, a paper flower, fabric leaves, wooden feathers and a bit of inked up gauze to the background. Lastly, I added the sequins for a pop of sparkle.



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.

Go forth and get inky...we dare you!
