August 2014 Diva Dare

Celebrate Good Times - August Diva Dare

Welcome to August's Diva Dare!  This month's dare is 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!




Hubby and I will be attending a wedding at the end of August, so this was the perfect opportunity to get my card done well in advance.  I used last week's Viva La Verve sketch for my layout and this fabulous, large font, "Celebrate" sentiment from Moments Remember.  I adore this stamp as it can be used for so many occasions, and you definitely can't miss the fact there is something to celebrate!  The Lovely Marquee die provided the platform for my secondary sentiment from  Love Story .  A touch of seam binding from the Signature Series Ribbon Collection and I had to add some bling as the bride loooves bling :)


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.
