Verve's April Diva Dare and a tip

Hi all,

This month's Diva Dare at Verve Stamps is to create a card with a flower or butterfly and bright colors.  Must use at least one Verve product.  So here is my creation!
Here I used Verve's Flutterby die which I embossed with the dot folder, then I touched all of the dots with a little Crystal Stickles.  The license plate is a die by MFT as well as the alphabet stamps. I heat embossed the letters with a sparkle embossing powder.   A flower (added Stickles to the edges), Jolee's crystal and paper (We R Memory Keepers) from the stash. Large dot embossing folder by Darice.  License place popped up with a piece of foam.

*TIP:  I really don't like to see the white foam or foam dots from the side of my project.  So what I do is take a Sharpie (black) or a Copic and color the edge of the foam to cover the white.  In the picture above you can't see how the license plate is raised.  Simple yet effective!  Hope you can use the tip!

Hope you're having a good week...I am sick again now with bronchitis!  Ugh...I can't win...
