July Diva Dare
Welcome to July's Diva Dare! This month's theme is "Tattered Pages" and showcases Julee, Verve's owner and creator and her wonderful use of uplifting phrases along with Diva Teresa's wonderful use of distressing and shabbiness on her cards.
The challenge is to create a card or project that has an encouraging/uplifting sentiment and includes some distressing/shabbiness. Kind of like an encouraging card you have received which you have read over and over so many times that it shows signs of being well loved by its' tattered edges.
For my card, I used this week's Verve Sketch and paired it with some Classic K McKenna paper from K & Company. This fabulous sentiment from Let It Be jumped out at me and thus became the focal point of my card. It's such a wonderful encouragement and reminder that faith can get you through seemingly insurmountable situations (something I needed to hear as I'm dealing with one right now). The largest die from the Banner Bundle die set created the fishtail, and the yummy raspberry coloured seam binding is from the Spring Fling ribbon collection. A touch of lace, twine, some pearls and some distressing brought in Teresa's side of this month's dare.
Of course, where there is a Verve Diva Dare, there are prizes, and this month's dare provides two prizes: one for a randomly selected participant and one for a randomly selected commenter!
