August 2014 Diva Dare - Day 9

Celebrate Good Times - August Diva Dare

Welcome to August's Diva Dare! Jen 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!


Today I'm sharing a clean and simple birthday card I made for a friend of my daughter. She LOVES bright fun colors so I went with white, lime green and bright pink. I started with a white A2 card base and then layered it with another white piece of card stock embossed with dots. I used a scalloped border punch to create the three little scallops and added three sequins to the top. I stamped Birthday To You Plain Jane on top in bright pink and die cut it with a large die from the Banner Bundle Die Set.

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