November Diva Dare


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!

Coming from Verve blog to share some 'card love.' Gorgeous, absolutely wonderfully gorgeous! Love the colours, hearts, patterns, flags, pearls and that wee gem on the darling red heart is the perfect special touch! A shape challenge certainly has my interest piqued; need to think, ponder and create! Thanks so much for your warm comments on my site; you've warmed up this chilly Alberta day!!
