VLV January Week 4 Recap + Viewfinder

Hello Verve fans and friends! Sarah here, bringing you another look at this week's sketch, and taking a closer peek at some of your gorgeous cards!

I love our fab week 4 sketch by Anya, here's another take on it from me...

by Sarah Gough using Wings of Love
I've been enjoying using blue and yellow for an alternate Valentine color combo this season. That's the great thing about stamping, yellow hearts? Sure! I've paper pieced the hearts, and added some shading to the wings with copics.  You can see more of this card and the finished inside in my blog post at thinkingstamps.

There have been so many stunning cards so far this month! Here's a little look at three I just adore!

This card by Heidi is such a beautiful take on our week one sketch and colors - blue butterflies? Yes please!

I love the chalkboard technique, and Cheryl's card shows it off to perfection! I love the bold black panel contrasted with those gorgeous flowers!
The colors on Tricia's card are just stunning, and she has used the current sketch perfectly! Who wouldn't want to receive this beauty?

Thank you all for sharing your talent with us! There's still time to create with all the sketches for the month, and we'll be back on Friday with some brand new inspiration!
