Viva La Verve August 2014 Week 4 Recap and Viewfinder

Good morning!  Anya popping in today to share this week's Recap and Viewfinder for the August 2014 week 4 sketch created by Diva Janelle.  Its a wonderfully versatile sketch! 

This is the fourth 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 4 sketch.

I took a few liberties with this week's sketch, twisting the vertical design and going with a square card base.

I used Better Together and the Rounded Scallop Frame Die.


Here are a few cards from the gallery that caught my eye.

MeganBeth's simple embellishments really allows her sentiment to take center stage, and allows us to focus right on the fun patterned papers and happy colors!

 Lori nailed this week's sketch with her fabulous birthday card - love the pops of color!

Hillary's nautical-themed card is like a breath of fresh ocean air.  Love the distressed look and those little aqua dots!
