April Diva Dare ~ Day 2

Hi Verve fans!  It's Jackie here and I want to welcome you to Day 2 of the April Diva Dare!

For those of you that are new to this challenge, here is how it works...following each release, we will post a theme that 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 - April Showers Bring May Flowers!  With the warmer weather, new growth, and all the fresh and beautiful blooms that abound, it is easy to be inspired by Spring!  How you interpret the dare is completely up to you!  To sweeten up the challenge, stay tuned to learn how you could win some brand new Verve!

This is how I answered this month's dare!  I took the flowers part of the dare serious!  LOL!  I used the new set, Bloom andGrow and paired it with some fun Jillibean Soup Blossom Soup papers.  The flowers were stamped in Cherry Cobbler and Peach Parfait inks and were cut out with the new A Cut Above Floral Circle Dies.  The leaves were stamped in Old Olive and were cut out with the A Cut Above Elegant Leaves Die.  The sentiment was stamped in Cherry Cobbler Ink and was cut out with Oval Nestabilities.  Some adhesive pearls and a couple rounded corners finish the card!
