A Throwdown Case-A-Diva Card

Verve Stamps' September Diva Dare challenges you to Case-a-Diva
(fancy talk for copy).

I chose Sankari Wegman to case.

Every time I go on a Verve hop and land on her blog...I literally gasp.

My eyeballs POP when I see what she does with color

AND bling.


It's like she's working with a special rainbow or shade of colors.

She's like the Color Whisperer. ;)

My card is not as magnificent as her work,

but my heart was in the right place.. ;)

helped me get started.

See my baby attempts at quilling???

Note it's quilling with a little "q". ;)

 Gotta start somewhere,right?

Thank you for stopping by today. ;)
