Verve Diva Dare April 2014

This month's Diva Dare is entitled "Little Things".  In honor Spring's arrival, this month's Dare is to create a baby or kid's themed card.

I love making baby cards, and since the last one I made was for a boy, this one had to be for a girl so my stash is even LOL!  used one of my favorite colour combos for this card and of course, Verve's To The Moon baby set - a must have!  Paper pieced Emerietta (my female name for Emery), double punched the heart border, stuck it together and added some ruffled ribbon down the middle to create my "lace" and then had fun with pearl accents.

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!

This is just precious, Marisa! I love the pearls and ruffled ribbon! Ha...makes me laugh that you changed Emery's name to a female version...too funny!

Love all the other colours, not just pink :)

So incredibly sweet! Your pink+green combination, with the hint of yellow, and the label/scalloped circle frames are the perfect background for the darling elephant! A card to be treasured for sure! Awesome, Marisa!!

Emerietta is adorable and so is that double punched heart border!

The cutest of baby cards and the little touches are so precious. The little gems on the edge of the tag, the ribbon along the 'lace', the pearls around the circle die cut etc. These little things make your card even more amazing! xxx
