Viva la Verve Returns August Sketch Challenge

Hi Verve fans! It's been a long break, but we're ready to bring some more inspirational sketches your way.  We're starting out with one sketch for the month of August, and will hopefully be back to a regular schedule in September. As always, you can use any stamps and enter as many times as you like. We love to see your creations!

Welcome to our August Viva la Verve Sketch challenge!

Are you ready to get sketchy again? We've got a month long challenge and we'd love for you to play along with us and link your challenge creations to our Entry Form link list for a chance to win! The link list will be up for the whole month and we'll choose a winner at the end of the month to win a $40 gift voucher to Verve. We've got a fabulous new release coming August 28, so it will be the perfect time to win a little Verve! In the meantime, we have a wonderful Anni-VERVE-sary sale going on through the end of the month. Our July release is 20% off and everything else in the shop is 30% off!

Here is our August sketch

My sample card is a super early peek at one of the new sets releasing at the end of the month. This month is our 10th Anni-VERVE-sary and so one of the sets in the release just had to be a birthday one!  I used two sentiments from the Cake & Candles set for this black, white and a splash of pink card. My rolled flower is accented with a couple leaves from the back in stock Sprightly Sprigs Die Set.

Okay, now it's your turn!
We can't wait to see what you create!

Gorgeous card, Julee! I'll see if I can get a card made this weekend!

Tammy said...

So excited to have another one of your sketches to use as a starting off point for my own card making! Your card is beautiful, Julee. I love the patterned papers you used and how you added the "birthday wishes" on one of the pieces.

So glad Viva la Verve is back! Your card is gorgeous - and I love the font used for the sentiment - which is just lovely.

Greta said...

Hurrah--you're back! The sketch is really inspiring & your card is a stunner, Julee! Can't wait to see that BD set--may "need" to have it!

Your card is gorgeous Julee! I love the elegant color combo of black and pink. This sketch motivated me to dig into my patterned papers and play!
