VLV March 2014 sketch + color challenge

Welcome to our first Viva la Verve sketch of March!

Thanks so much for playing along and sharing all your FABULOUS creations in February!  I announced our February winner last night, so scroll down or click here to view our February winner announcement to see if you're our February Viva la Diva!

Okay, it's the first challenge of the month and that means it's a sketch + color challenge.  It's no secret that I love aqua and brown, so this month I decided to add a bit of green to the mix in honor of St. Patrick's Day for our color challenge. Hope you enjoy this fun spring palette.

We'll have 4 March 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 are.  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 March 1 sketch and color challenge.  Feel free to just use the sketch, use the colors (aqua, green, brown) or both!

To get you started, here is my sample card using the sketch and colors.
