This month's Diva Dare is happening over at the Verve Blog. This month's challenge is to Case-a-Diva! I was so glad that it was decided for me, which Diva I was to CASE, because I just wouldn't have been able to decide on my own! I think all of the girls create such fabulous things! My assignment, though, was Amy! Have you ever visited her gallery? Oh my! It took me a while to settle on which card I was going to CASE, but I finally decided on this one. I LOVED the colors on this card, the layout and how Amy used that swirl from the Happy Days set.
When I think of Amy, I think of pearls, lace, layers, unique embellishments and fabulous layouts. I wanted to copy this card exactly, because I just love it. . .but I decided to go with a different color scheme. I still used the swirl from Happy Days, but the sentiment and "butterfly" are from the Fancy Florals Remixed set. The papers are from the Life of the Party Collection from My Mind's Eye.
I started by created the card base using my Scalloped Square Grand Nestabilities. For the butterfly, I wanted to add an "Amy unique embellishment", so I create the antennae and flight trail from button twine. I used Stickles to coat the button twine, then I wrapped it around a paint brush handle and let it dry. Once it was dry, I slid it off the handle and had this curly flight trail.
We hope you'll play along in this month's Diva Dare! All of the details can be found on this post! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
