August 2014 Diva Dare - Day 7

Celebrate Good Times - August Diva Dare


Welcome to August's Diva Dare!  Maureen 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 can always remember Verve's Anniversary year as I got married in the same year!  Lucky 7 this year!  I chose some soft pretty papers from Teresa Collins' Summer Stories pad for the base of my card.  Then I embossed the Happy Place flowers with some old rose gold embossing powder I had in my stash and stamped this beautiful sentiment from Moments Remembered onto a vellum tag.
 

 I looked through some older Verve sets to find the perfect little sentiment to go with the main quote.  This one came from Remember This.  I wanted to somehow acknowledge "7" years on my card so I made this sweet little tag with the "7" from Calendar Countdown.  Of course you can't have an anniversary without some bling so I made sure to use a smattering of the Shine Bright Sequin Mix for a celebratory look!




 

Two ways to win prizes for double the fun!
