Welcome back to July's Viva la Verve sketches!

Marisa here with this week's sketch, Viva La Verve July Week 2. 

We'll have 5 July challenges... 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.   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 is the Week 2 sketch....

Here's my take on this week's sketch...

I dug though my papers and found this fun piece by Cosmo Cricket called Fairy Rings.  Loved the colour combination and fresh, fun feel it gives.  Paired it with a lilac doily, Verve's new Flourished Tag Die Set, a sentiment from Floral Notes, and wonderful blue bells from Framed Florals and their matching Bluebell die.   

 And to get you even more inspired, here are some gorgeous samples from Julee, Stacey and Charmaine.

Julee created this beauty using Floral Notes and Deco Borders, along with the Flourished Tag Die Set and Signature Ribbon Collection.

Stacey created this layered masterpiece using Strong Anchor with coordinating Nautical Die Set and  Flourished Tag Die Set.

Charmaine created is wonderful, bright and cheery card using Happy Place and matching Happy Doodles die set, along with the Flourished Tag Die Set.

In addition, today is the beginning of our July Diva Inspirations Hop! Hop along for a chance to win some Verve and if you participate by creating a card using the Sensational Stripes theme, your chances of winning are doubled :)  You can find all the Hop details are on the Verve Blog.
