Welcome to Verve's November's Diva Dare! This month's theme is "Shape Up" and the Divas are daring you to create a card which includes a common shape on it. For example, hexagons, hearts, triangles, chevrons, stars, arrows etc. Lots of ways you can go with this dare :)
For my card, I pulled out the newly released Chevron Love set. I just love hearts and will take any excuse to use them on a card!
Diva Christyne's fabulous VLV sketch was a great layout for my card. The papers are from MME's Love Me paper pack. I use the Jotted Heart die and then clear embossed the matching chevron heart on to it. Where there is a heart there is often my beloved "U" die with it, as is the case here. I crimped the "U" from the I Heart You die set (though you can't see it in the photo - urgh!), added the smallest heart from the Heart Quartet die set and finished it off with a bit of bling. A few banners from the Pennant Trim die and some delicious, red seam binding from Verve's Truly, Madly, Deeply ribbon collection called it a card.
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! Worth participating for sure, because Christmas is a coming and a gift certificate would come in very handy wink, wink!
