October 2014 Diva Dare - Day 5

Welcome to October's Diva Dare!  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.  My grandmother, mother, and now my Aunt have all been diagnosed with this horrible disease.  I am so grateful for any stamp set that will encourage, uplift, and bring a smile to those that are also fighting this disease.

 
I really love the sentiments in the Inspire Hope set!  I think they are perfect for sending some love and encouragement!  I started with a couple of pink patterned papers and then layered on some patterned vellum.  I embossed the frame and sentiment using white embossing powder and the flowers using silver embossing powder.  I added some silver cording, a mini clothes pin, rhinestones, and some sequins for embellishment.







Two ways to win prizes for double the fun!

Win a $40 gift voucher to Verve! Take our Pink Power dare and link your card up to be eligible to win.  Entries must have pink on your card or project, be posted 10/10 or later, include at least one Verve product and be linked up to the linky widget by 8pm Mountain on 10/26/14.  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 Pink Power 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 October 26, 2014.


Winners will be announced on October 27, 2014.
