October 2014 Diva Dare ~ Day 4

  Pink Power- October Diva Dare

Hi Verve fans and welcome to October's Diva Dare!  It's Andrea here with you today and this month's dare is entitled Pink Power in honor of October being breast cancer awareness month.  Many of us have had friends and family who have waged a battle against this disease. I was just informed recently that a wonderfully sweet neighbor of mine was just diagnosed with breast cancer. I am hoping that she wins her fight against this terrible disease. Here's a card that I made for her in her honor:  



I wanted the pinks to really stand out, so I based them on a very muted background, with just hints of pink in it. I used Verve's Pink Power stamp set, stamped on a cut out tag from Prima's Romance Novel papers. I mounted that on a Spellbinders die and added my array of vibrantly pink flowers, with a silver charm and some black/pearl stamens thrown in for a little interest. The edges are all distressed with a paper distresser and Walnut Stain distress ink. I decided to make the card base smaller than the card front...just cos you don't see that very often. :)




Two ways to win prizes for double the fun!
