Beautiful U ~ Verve Diva Dare


Good morning!! I have a super wonderful post to share with you today.  I am hosting Day 8 of the Verve Diva Dare over on the Verve Blog today!!  This month we are challenged to CASE a Diva!  Though, I LOVED this as soon as I heard about it, I thought, “EEK!!!  How will I ever choose?”  Lucky for us Divas, Andrea came up with the fabulous “draw a Diva” idea.  Phew!!  It didn’t matter who I got as I LOVE all the Divas and their work and would be honoured to CASE any one of them!!  My draw?  The super sweet and ultra talented Diva Teresa Kline!!  Oh, my!!  Love her!  No, L-O-V-E her!!  So off to her Verve Gallery I went to TRY and NARROW down one card I could CASE and do her proud.  And like me, I had to pick 3 projects!! LOL  BUT, I put them into one card here :)  So, this is what I know about Teresa’s style…gorgeous, muted papers, LOADS of distressing, fun stitching, lace, seam binding and lots of elegant details.  Yes, DETAILS, DETAILS, DETAILS.  I think I’ve done that using the You and I and Love Notes sets along with the Jotted Heart and I {heart} U dies.  I love adding a little bookmark as a little added bonus in an envelope.  Here it is using a fabulous quote from Words of Wisdom on the Sweet Scallop Tag die.


And here are Teresa’s 3 inspiration photos :)  Thanks so much for stopping by…head over to the Verve Blog for more details about entering this super fun challenge :)  Have a wonderful day!!

Yum, yum, yum, yum...yum! Love this...the little floral bling on the U is so sweet. And the pop of pink on the tag I love. I am definitely a black, white and pink kind of girl! Fabulous CASE!
