Viva La Verve May 2014 Week 1 Recap & Viewfinder

Good morning! Anya here, and I am stopping in to give you another look at this week's Viva la Verve sketch challenge. I also picked a few fabulous creations to share that are already linked up in link list! Here is a sample from me for this week's sketch. I used the Better Together set and pulled in the bonus color challenge.

We'll have 5 May 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 are a few cards that were linked up that caught my eye.

This bright card from DJ jumped right out at me. I love the stamped vellum layered over the die cut 'u'.

Don't you just love the fabulous mix of patterns on Hillary's card? I love the addition of black, and the cute little butterfly sequin trail.

Vickie's card is certainly sunshiny! The layered butterfly and stitched accents add some fun texture to this cutie.

Gorgeous creations, ladies! I can't wait to see what the rest of you come up with!
