March Diva Dare - Day 1

Welcome to Day one of the March Diva Dare!  Here's how our Diva Dare works... following each release, we post a theme we dare you with, and you'll have two weeks to complete the challenge.  During those two weeks, the release team will post their creations and tell you how they answered the dare!

This month we dare you to make a card, project, layout, or whatever fits your stamping style using this month's theme - Color Me SpringWhether you are shoveling snow off of your sidewalks and only dreaming of warmer weather or you are already enjoying the first blooms of the season, this challenge is sure to put a spring in your step! How you interpret the challenge is up to you!  Stay tuned to learn how you could win some shiny new Verve!!

This is how I answered the dare...

Whenever I think of Spring, I think of happiness.  And when I think of happiness, my thoughts naturally go to rainbows!  It may not be conventional, but it is how my rainbow loving mind works!  LOL!  Because I wanted an overall soft project, I chose to use a pastel version of my beloved rainbow palette.  After I had my cardstock pieces glued in place, I embossed the flower (from the new Chicks Rule set) in white.  For the tag, I embossed the Think Spring sentiment (from the new Egg-stra Special set) and then cut it out using the new Charming Oval Die!

Want to know how you can win some fabulous new VERVE GOODIES?
