Viva La Verve June 2014 Week 3 Recap & Viewfinder

Good morning! Anya here again to recap this week's Viva la Verve sketch challenge. I also picked a few fabulous creations to share that are already linked up in the June link list!

Didn't Chaitali do a great job with her first sketch? I loved the inspiration pic, too! Here they are again if you're a little late to the party! :)

Here is the card that I created for this week's sketch. I flipped the sketch and picked up on a few elements from the inspiration photo. I used the Be Blessed set along with the coordinating Petal Points and Sprightly Sprigs die sets.

We'll have 4 challenges in June... 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 in the link list that caught my eye:

Kalla Walla created this sunshiny card using the Beautiful Kindness and Joyful Blooms sets. I love the clear embossed butterfly on the vellum - it looks like stained glass!

The bright pops of color really make Charleen's beautiful thank you card stand out. I love how she stamped her Brighter Days blossom onto patterned paper.

I can tell that inspiration struck Dawn with this week's sketch! She was cranking out the fabulous creations! Of all of them, this one using the Birthday Bots set paired with the colorful patterned paper is my fav!

Fabulous job, ladies!
