August 2014 Diva Dare ~ Day 6

Celebrate Good Times - August Diva Dare


Welcome to August's Diva Dare!  Laurie here with my take on 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 have been wanting to watercolor this flower image (from the new Happy Place stamp set) for a while now, so that is how I started this card!  For the sentiment, I chose the large celebrate sentiment from the Moments Remembered set, and added it as a banner across the card.  For embellishment I adhered some wee little wooden hearts (that I dyed to match the flowers), rhinestones in the center of the flowers, as well as a library clip and twine.

 
 
 
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!
