Viva La Verve August Week 3 Recap and Viewfinder

Hello Verve fans, Maureen here recapping Stacey's super fun sketch for Week 3! 
 I love me a doily and tag!  

We'll have 4 August 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 3 sketch....

Here is my second take on this week's sketch.
 I mixed some bronze paint with embossing paste and then spread it over a leaf stencil.  Once everything was dry, I cut it into a bookmark!  My hearts and swirls frame was needing some love so I used it for the sentiment panel. 

Here are a few beautiful cards I spied in the link-up this week...

Autumn has created a gorgeous uplifting card using distress inks, a double stamped Grace Plain Jane, and Poppy Birthday on the tag's background. 

 Hillary's card had me at RED doily!  Wow!  She has created an inspiring card featuring Strong Anchor, Shine Bright Sequin Mix, Nautical Die Set, and Classy Label Die.

Rosemary's colour combination, pretty papers, gold lettered tag and sweet tag ties caught my eye!  Gorgeous!  Add Framed Florals, Unto Us, Bluebells Die, and Classy Label Die and you've got one amazing card!

 Be sure to join us on Friday for some brand new inspiration as we showcase our fourth Viva La Verve August sketch.
