Welcome to August's Diva Dare!! This month's theme is "Pile on the Sweetness" and showcases Diva Andrea and Diva Christyne, who are both known for their amazing work with multiple layers on their cards.
In addition, if you want to kick this month's dare up a notch, you can add a flower cluster as per Andrea, or go with a "sweet" theme as per Christyne's blog name "Stamping with Sugar". These are not required elements, but fun options should you chose to take the double dog dare wink, wink.
Here is my take on this month's dare.
I used Diva Maureen's VLV sketch and the papers are from My Mind's Eye In Bloom 6x6 pad. Still love this paper pad and I'm glad I bought two of them when it was at Michael's! I added some lace, seam binding, lots of layers and used a sentiment from Love Story which is a bit generic so the card can be used for multiple occasions. A crimped Wavy Heart die and some pearls finished things off nicely. I counted nine layers so I think I'm good LOL!
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!
