August 2014 Diva Dare - Day 8

Celebrate Good Times - August Diva Dare

Welcome to August's Diva Dare! Chaitali 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!

This is the first of many days (yup there is more coming this month!) of celebrating Anni-Verve-sary for me! I felt it was appropriate that I use a bunch of stamps to create a collage of happy sentiments. Each of the sentiments here comes from a different Verve set. Lets start counting shall we?

"Have a happy day" from Be Blessed; "Celebrate" from Moments Remembered; "Love" from Text Objects; "Enjoy" from Learning to Sail; "Smile" from Happy Place and "Celebrate Today" from one mystery unreleased set ;)

I kept the background simple with some patterned paper from my stash and let the sentiments collage be the focal point of the card. I couldn't resist adding some white embossed flowers colored in distress inks. I followed Jennifer McGuire's tutorial to color the flowers quickly and fussy cut them to get a crisp white outline. The flower stamps are from Be Blessed and Happy Place sets.

Hope you enjoyed my take on the Diva Dare this month! Now you are invited to play along with us and get inky!
