VLV February Week 1 Recap + Viewfinder

Hi there! Its time for this week's Viva la Verve recap and Viewfinder. A chance for us to spotlight a few fabulous creations gracing the challenge gallery.

Here is our sketch for this week's challenge:

We also have an optional color challenge thrown in to this week's mix, too!

Here are a few of the fabulous cards I saw uploaded for this week's challenge:

I am smitten with this cute Valentine from Colleen. The little dotty clouds play so perfectly to her sentiment, and the patterned papers really add the romance.

What's not to love about this elegant wedding card from Twinlynn? The vellum circle overlays add sheer softness to the wonderful texture of the embossed background. The pop of silver ribbon helps to ground that beautiful focal sentiment.

Tricia's sunny card brings a smile to my face. Her bright flowers are perfectly placed for this week's sketch, and that smart cookie played along with our Floral Fantasy inspiration challenge, too!

If you haven't yet joined in this week's challenge, we hope you'll squeeze us in - thanks to the ladies who have shared their lovely creations already!
