Verve Diva Dare

 
It's Friday!  Any fun plans this weekend?  Our high school football team is in the third round of the state playoffs, so we'll be cheering them on for a victory tonight.  We live in a great town and it is absolutely awesome to see all the positive support for the team!

I have two cards to share with you today.  The current Verve Diva Dare is to create a card with a common shape. For my card, I used arrows.  I love the new chevron arrows. I paired it up with some patterned MME paper. This paper is a more masculine paper back.  Definitely need more masculine cards in my house of all boys!

While I had my Verve Chevron Love set out, I also created a very traditional birthday card below. Have a favorite?

Hope the game goes well tonight - good luck to all the boys. Love both cards Lynn, but I think the balloons card sneaks in as a favourite :)
