Hi friends! I'm,wrapping up the design team posts for our Stars & Stripes Diva Dare over on the Verve Blog today. Have you been following along? There's a chance at one of 3 prizes for leaving comments along the Dare, as well as the possibility of winning Verve's ENTIRE May release for playing along with our Stars & Stripes challenge!!! So what ya waitin' for? The deadline is this Thursday, May 30!!! Check out all the details on the Verve Blog.
For my answer to the dare, I went with a traditional take on Stars & Stripes. I absolutely love Americana and so I kept my look a bit shabby with the idea of making a card suitable for sending to someone in the military. I thought this sentiment from Let it Be was just perfect for that. I kept things pretty simple, using the Viva la Verve! May Week 4 sketch. (Are you playing along with VLV??? There's a chance to win a $100 gift voucher to Verve if you participate in all 4 of this month's sketches.) I used the Starry Die to cut through my two layers of paper, then popped the panel up on dimensionals to really make the background under the stars shine through. The little border is made with the Scallop Trim Trio Die Set and I finished off with some cluster stars and stripey blue ribbon.
Okay, that's all from me today. Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you have a fabulous day and can find a little time to play along in our challenge!

This blog is for personal inspiration only and all projects are my original designs unless otherwise stated. I own Verve Stamps and have received products and materials to work with from several generous companies over the years. While I have received free products from these companies, I maintain the freedom as an independent designer to say what I truly think of their products. I will never recommend something that I don’t personally use and enjoy.
