Verve March Diva Dare & Faber Castell Design Memory Craft

This month's Verve March Diva Dare is "Do The Polka."    

What we're daring you to do this month is to use polka dots somewhere on your card. Whether you choose to strut your polka dot stamps, paper, ribbon or all of the above, we want to see you do the polka!

Ever seen aqua poppies?  Probably not, but aren't they GORGEOUS?!  These Verve poppies would look fabulous in ANY color, I believe!

For some extra inspiration, I used Diva Maureen's Viva la Verve March Week 2 Sketch Challenge with Viva la Verve March Week 1 Color Challenge!

I'm also up on the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Blog today with a Gelatos and Gesso Background Tutorial!  I'd love for you to stop by over there and give me a shout-out!

I made some pools of aqua with my Gelatos and water and colored up these fabulous flowers from Poppy Birthday and die cut them with their coordinating dies, Build a Poppy Die Set.  That yummy ribbon is from the Pastel Polka Ribbon Collection and there are a few sprinkles of Pastel Sequin Mix on my card for a little sparkle!

Thanks so much for stopping by the stage!
