A Diva Dare Case

A Diva Dare's been thrown out by Laurie this month. The dare is to CASE a Diva, and I have the honor of CASEing Jackie. What fun to be "Jackie" for awhile. Channeling her diva skills, using her sketch...and ideas....*grin*. Pure stamping fun!!

Now comes the really hard part. Choosing one of Jackie's stunning cards. No easy task, let me tell you. I finally settled on THIS ONE, because I liked the layout and shapes she used. I don't normally think vertical like this sketch suggests, so it was fun to work with. She also has a fabulous way of working with colors and patterns. I loved the horizontal striped panel in the back.

So, for my CASE, I used the same set, Sunny Days, for the flowers and leaves, and added a sentiment from the set Making a Statement. I changed my shapes up a bit, and added some Webster's Pages flocked netting behind the main panel. I also changed my color palette.

That's it for my card. Let me remind you how these dares work. If you make a card and link it to the first diva dare post HERE, you have a chance to win a $30 Verve gift certificate. By leaving comments in you have an opportunity to win a Verve set of your choice. Now doesn't that sound fun? So, head on over to the Verve Stamps blog for all the details.
