Welcome to another segment of Verve's Diva Dares! This month's Dare is called "Stars and Stripes". It combines a tribute to Diva Amber's military service and Diva Laurie Wilson's fabulous use of stripes on her cards. Here is my take on the Dare.
Since I had a starry night in mind when I thought of this challenge, I immediately reached for Verve's new Let It Be set as it has some great "shine" sentiments. I used the Rounded Scalloped Frame die twice, once on black card stock and once on white, and then swapped out the middles to have opposing frames and centers. The sentiment was embossed in white and the Starry Die was perfect for creating my scatter of stars. I also used the star die from the Scalloped Trim Trio set to emphasise the star aspect just a little more ;) Oh, and I just "had" to use some more of that yummy Polka Dot Basic ribbon collection to finish things off! The striped portion of the Dare got a bit overshadowed by the stars, but it is there and does provide grounding for the card.
Where there is a Verve Dare, there are prizes, and this month's Dare provides you with FOUR ways to win!! Three lucky commenters, randomly selected over the course of the Dare, will win a Verve set of their choice. One lucky person participating in this month's Dare, will be randomly selected to win the entire May release!! Well worth playing for in my books!!
