Viva La Verve April 2014 Week 4 Recap + Viewfinder

 Hi there!  It's Charmaine, and I'm reminding you of the current Viva la Verve Sketch that is up and highlighting a few creations using this sketch that caught my eye!!  Here's another sample from me using this sketch.  My card uses the Jotted Heart Die and a sentiment from Petals & Wings.
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.

Check out these cards from the gallery that caught my eye!

 I really loved the dainty embossing on this card by Charleen Crawford.  That pop of red that the little rose brings to the card is just beautiful! 

 I just loved this happy little card from Joanne Travis.  The colors make me smile and so do all those adorable dots!!

This card from Kim S. is just FUN!!  The colors are so happy and I'm loving that pop of orange she added with the button!!
