Viva la Verve January 2014 Week 1 {Sketch + Color}

Welcome to our first Viva la Verve sketch at our new blog!

We're so excited about adding a bit of spice to our weekly challenges and I hope you're going to love the little tweaks we've made. The first week of every month will be a sketch + color challenge. You can use just the sketch, just the colors, or combine them for even more fun.

We'll have 5 January challenges, play along with us and link each of your challenge creations to our Entry Form link list. The link list will be up for the whole month and we'll choose a random winner at the end of the month to win a $100 gift voucher to Verve.  Challenge rules can be found on the Rules tab at the top of the blog or by clicking here..  You don't have to complete all of the sketches to win, but the more cards you enter, the greater your odds of winning are.  We'll also be highlighting a couple of our favorite link-ups each Tuesday, so be sure to get your links in if you're crafting over the weekend.

Here is the January Week 1 sketch and color challenge.  Feel free to just use the sketch, use the colors (aqua, brown and red) or both!

To get you started, here is my sample card using the sketch and colors.
