We Remember Moments... Verve Diva Dare

Hey there, Verve fans!  
I'm up on the Verve Stamps Blog today as your Diva Dare hostess!

Inside Out - July Diva Dare

This month we're daring you to create a stamped card and continue the design on the inside for a special surprise for the recipient.  Simply carry over some portion of the card front design on to the inside of your card. 

Aren't those feathers from the new Moments Remembered stamp set the most GORGEOUS things you've ever seen?!
After stamping and fussy cutting two of those beautiful feathers, I paired them up with a coordinating sentiment from the same stamp set.  There is a peek of Flag It Die Set under the fancy Signature Ribbon Collection bow and several Shine Bright Sequin Mix sprinkles scattered here and there.
Here's a snapshot of the the inside...

I kept it simple here with a second sentiment and smaller feather from Moments Remembered.

There are still a couple of days to play along with this week's Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge #354, too!  I also used the Color Throwdown #301...there are tiny coral dots in the chevron pattern on my card...

Thanks so much for stopping by the stage!

Here's the stamp set that irresistible dragon came from...Bean Stalk Collection: Blow Me Away!

I stamped the dragon with Versamark and heat embossed with white embossing powder, fussy cut the image out and propped him up on a few delightful layers of patterned paper and die cuts.  The sentiment banner was displayed above Mr. Dragon and a few sequins and a fun bow were added to finish off the card.  

Thanks so much for stopping by the stage!
