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

Welcome to our first Viva la Verve sketch of April!

Thanks so much for playing along and sharing all your stunning creations in March!  I announced our March Viva la Diva last night, so scroll down or click here to view our March winner announcement to see if you're our March winner!

So it's the first challenge of the month and that means it's a sketch + color challenge.  This month I thought we'd add a little of my new favorite neutral... gray... to a tried and true spring combination... pink & green.  Can't wait to see what lovelies you all create!

We'll have 4 April 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.  Verve stamps are not required to play, but we do love to see 'em!  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 April 1 sketch and color challenge.  Feel free to just use the sketch, just the colors (pink, gray, green) or both!

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