CCNS & The Verve Diva Dare

Happy Wednesday everyone. Are you enjoying the Daylight Savings Time? I know that my family is.

Today's card was inspired by the March Verve Diva Dare and many of the products I used today are from the Classy Cards N Such Online Store.

The Diva Dare was to combine the styles of Diva Laurie and Diva Maureen into your creation. I love both of their styles and have several of their cards pinned on my Verve Inspiration Board on Pinterest. When I think of Laurie I think of several layers, soft colors, bling and distressed edges as in this card. When I think of Maureen, I see bright colors, big fluffy bows, buttons and bling, and a focus on the sentiment as in this card.

So I set off to creating my card. I started with the first Viva la Verve Sketch for March and rotated it 90 degrees to the right.

Here is what I ended up with...

It was no issue at all for me to distress, layer it up, or add bling. The real dare for me was to include a bow. Seriously I cannot make a bow if my life depended on it. I even have that tool, I think it's called Bow Easy. Bow Easy for who? Certainly not me. But, in honor of Maureen I pulled out the seam binding and set about making my poor excuse for a bow. Other than that I am thrilled with the way the card came out.

The inspiration to use this particular sentiment from the Wonderfully Made Verve Stamp Set came from some struggles I've been facing with my health lately. It's encouraging and it speaks volumes about what God has brought me through.
