Verve Diva Dare June 2014


This month's Diva Dare is entitled "A Man’s World".  With Father's Day falling on the 15th of this month, and BBQ season beginning, we are daring you to create a card with a masculine theme.  It doesn't have to be a Father's Day card, just one with a masculine feel to it.

I used Verve's newly released, Wonderful Marvelous for my card.  Love the variety of sentiments for both moms and dads in this set!  The Starry Die provided most of the scattered stars, and both the banner and flags were paper pieced.  A touch of silver cording and I was good to go.  Probably a bit over the top for a masculine card now that I look at it, so may have to go round two 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!
