Viva la Verve week 2 and Verve Diva dare!

Good afternoon friends! Hope your Monday's
are all going fabulously! I decided I would
put up one more card today that I made
over the weekend. I'm really loving this one!
Just bought this paper pack from Fancy Pants
and have had the flowers from the dollar bin at
Michaels for a week or so...

This card is using the sketch for Viva la Verve
July week 2. I am also entering it into
this week's Diva Dare over at the Verve Blog.

This month's Diva Dare is featuring
Julee (owner of Verve) and Teresa! SO exciting! 
I just can't get enough of Teresa and Julee's 
gorgeous cards!!

Tattered Pages, July Diva Dare

This month's dare pays tribute to Julee (Poetic Artistry), 
owner and creator of Verve Stamps and Diva Teresa (Paperie Blooms).
  Julee has created countless, uplifting sentiments which have become
 one of Verve's trademarks, and Teresa knows 
how to rock distressing and "shabbiness" on her cards.  
So what we're daring you to create this month is a card 
using an uplifting sentiment and some distressing and/or shabby 
element to it. Kind of like an encouraging card you 
have received which you have read so many times the 
edges are a bit tattered.  Just remember to use 
at least one Verve product on your creation!  

My creation:

Fancy Pants paper
Verve plain jane, Studio G ink
Sizzix leaves die, paper flowers (Michaels)
button, bakers twine
