Viva La Verve August 2014 Week 3 Recap and Viewfinder

Sarah popping in today to share this week's Recap and Viewfinder for the August 2014 week three sketch created by Diva Stacey. This week also has an inspiration photo you can use as well if you wish.

This is the third of five sketch challenges in August... 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!

Here is the Week 3 sketch & inspiration challenge.  Feel free to just use the sketch, just the inspiration, or both!

I went with just the sketch today, and made a tall and skinny card - this sketch was just perfect for a skinnier card base!


Here are a few cards from the gallery that caught my eye.
Lyn has used such rich colours on this card, that orange bow is stunning!

Rosemary has rocked the week one sketch with a card sure to make anyone smile!

Rosie really worked the inspiration photo with this chalkboard card - perfect!
