Verve Diva Dare ~ September 2014



This month's Diva Dare is entitled "Terrific Trios".  Back to school time usually means life is a three ring circus, so this month we are daring you to add 3 of something to your card or project.

I used this weeks Viva La Verve Sketch, and immediately thought of using this fabulous image from the newly released One Cup.  Needless to say, the trio portion of the dare was all taken care of wink, wink.  Cut out the image using the matching Cuppa Tea Die Set and then paper pieced the mugs using MME's Stella and Rose papers (still love these papers!).   Opted for a natural colour pallet so the cups would pop, and added the crimped panel and some raffia for a bit of texture.

In true Verve fashion, where there is a 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!
