December Diva Dare - Playing Favorites

verve december dare

Welcome to the last Diva Dare of 2013!  This month's Dare is entitled "Playing Favorites" and it is a fun one indeed!

What we're daring you to do this month is to post your favorite Verve Stamps 2013 creation OR make a new card using your favorite Verve stamp set.  

I'm having ball as the Fall/Winter Guest Designer over at Verve!   Thanks a "latte," Julee, for having me here for the holiday season...it has been a thrill to work with you, your amazing team and those fabulous Verve goodies!

Head on over to the Verve Blog to see a few of my favorite projects that I created this year using Verve goodness!  While you're there, you can see my answers to "The Diva Fab Five Questionnaire." 

I used the MOJO Monday Sketch Challenge on my Diva Dare project today, too!

My card features those coffee/latte cups from one of my favorite stamp sets, Holiday Treats.  and the coordinating Cup of Cheer Die Set!  I adore the chevron rectangle image that fits snuggly into the Tagged Rectangle Die!  The Award Banner Trim Die peeks out from behind the focal panel and there's a sprinkling of the delicate Pastel Sequins Mix.

Gorgeous card! Curious about the twine…checked the Hemptique site…can't tell if you are using twine or cord…mind if I ask which you are using? I love the way you use it!!
