Verve April Diva Dare

In case you've missed it, the April Diva Dare has started on the Verve Blog.  Today is my day to post.  This month's theme is April Showers Bring May Flowers.  I don't know about you, but I am ready for the rain to stop.  Don't get me wrong, I like rain, I really do. . .but I don't like torrential downpours.  Especially when I have to push two kids in a stroller to pick my oldest up from school!  LOL 

My answer to this month's dare resembles the fresh and clean Spring I can't wait for!  No more mud. . .no more dull grass and barren trees.  Clean, fresh air and pops of color from the beautiful flowers that appear.  :)  I used the Bloom & Grow set and layered different colors for each of the flowers.  Then I die cut the flowers using the Floral Circles Die Set.  I added some glitter and rhinestones to the flowers to make them glisten.  The leaves were stamped and die cut using the Elegant Leaves Die.  After arranging the flowers on the focal piece, I stamped the sentiment and then drew a border with a pen and ruler.  The card base is embossing with the Dots Embossing Folder by Darice. 

Be sure to head on over to the Verve Blog to see what the rest of the Divas have created so far and for your chance to win some Verve!  Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful day!  SUPPLIES USED:  Stamps- Bloom & Grow (Verve Stamps); Ink- Onyx Black (Tsukineko), Groovy Guava, Blushing Bride, Daffodil Delight, Cherry Cobbler, Blue Bayou, Soft Sky, Crumb Cake (SU), Wheat (VersaMagic); Paper- white (Georgia-Pacific), True Black (PTI); Accessories- glitter (SU), rhinestones (Kaisercraft), Floral Circle Die Set, Elegant Leaves Die (Verve Stamps), Dots Embossing folder (Darice);  Finished card measures 4.25"x5.5"

This is such a beautiful card Charmaine! Your flowers just pop off the card against the white background. And I love the hand drawn line around the sentiment. Thanks for the inspiration today!
