Viva la Verve October Week 3 Recap & Viewfinder

Welcome to Viva la Verve!

Stacey here today sharing a Recap and Viewfinder for the October 2014 Week 3 Sketch and Inspiration created by Diva, Chaitali.  What a spectacular pair of challenges to work with!

This is the third of five sketch challenges in October .. 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 October Viva la Verve Week 3 Sketch and Inspiration!


I'm simply smitten with both the sketch and the inspiration graphics this week!  A great sketch and inspiration graphic can really take you out of your comfort to try something new and I LOVE how my card turned out!  Thanks, Chaitali, for inspiring me!

Check out these beautiful cards from the gallery that caught my eye!

Lynn used Button Best for a beautiful interpretation of the sketch and included the bright pink color from the inspiration photo!

Vickie used the One Cup stamp set and Coffee Word Die in a playful display of fun!

Nancy used a retired Verve stamp set along with Starry Die for a delightful and cheerful card!
