Viva La Verve June 2014 Week 1 Recap and View Finder

Hello Viva la Verve fans! Marisa here popping in with my take on Julee's fabulous sketch and colour combination, as well as a look at some of your gorgeous creations!

For my card I used this wonderful sentiment from Shining Star and since I couldn't find any aqua paper in my stash (need to remedie that asap!), I subbed in a baby blue.  The stars were cut using the Starry Die and I added the star border trim from the Scalloped Trim Trio die set.

Feel free to just use the sketch, just the colors (navy + yellow + aqua) or both!

Here are some of your creations which caught my eye:

Adore this baby card by Darlene!  She used Small Phrases and the Smallest Things Plain Jane for the sentiments and I just adore lace trimmed, embossed baby booties!   A fabulous baby card indeed!

Wanda's Father's Day card is just too fun! She used Dad's Day for the sentiment and Seeing Stars, well for the star LOL!.  I just adore the shaker element, and the veneer stars are the perfect embellishment for a masculine card.
This card by Cheryl Lea does indeed scream "happy".  The polka dotted paper is great, as is the and sparkly happy and embossed vellum with pinked edges.  The Pennant Trim die ties in nicely with the pinked circle and pointy star.
