December Diva Dare - Day 5

 Favorite Things - December Diva Dare

Welcome to December's Diva Dare, Christyne here today sharing with you this month's dare entitled Favorite Things.  

So this month, we are daring you to share your favorite Verve creation(s) for this year OR create a new one with one of your favorite Verve products.


After much debate, I decided on two of my favorite Verve cards created this year. I chose two layered cards whose layering I really enjoy. They also both happen to contain pink, black, bling, and distressing...my favorite things!!  "Happy Birthday" was created in my favorite color palette and highlighted the beautiful stamps from Be Blessed using a bunch of layered Verve dies: Pointed Petals Die set, Sprightly Sprigs Die set, Banner Bundle Die set, Rounded Scallop Die, and the Vintage Oval Frame Die.


"With Love" features some different layered Verve action to highlight the separated sentiment from Verve's Chevron Love stamp set including the Wavy Hearts Die Set and the Flag It Die Set.
