Viva la Verve June 2014 Week 4 - Recap & Viewfinder

Hey there, Viva la Verve fans!  Stacey here with June 2014 Week 4 Recap and Viewfinder!

This is the last of the 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's Christyne's gorgeous sketch...

...and here's my take on it!  Don't you love the horizontal panels behind the focal point!
I used a sentiment from Be Blessed, a couple of sprigs from A Cut Above Sprightly Sprigs Die Set, and some Pastel Sequin Mix sequins!

Here are a few cards in the link list that caught my eye...

I'm totally smitten with this beautiful card created by Lesley, using Hope Blooms!

Check out Karren with this crisp and sunny creation using Lean on Me and Happy Hello!

Lori created this gorgeous card using Poppy Birthday and coordinating Build a Poppy Die Set!
