Viva La Verve June 2014 Week 2 Recap & Viewfinder

Good morning! Anya here, and I am stopping in to give you another look at this week's Viva la Verve sketch challenge. I also picked a few fabulous creations to share that are already linked up in the June link list!

Here is the card that I created for this week's sketch. I used little bits from both the Be Blessed and Wonderful Marvelous sets.

We'll have 4 challenges in June... 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 are a few cards in the link list that caught my eye:

Really love this beauty from Lyn! I have always been drawn to this classy color combination, and I love how she added the pops of red to the centers of the flowers from Be Blessed. Love all the coordination between the layers, too!

I am sure anyone would love to receive this cheerful thank you card from Jen. The colors are so happy, and I love how she stamped the sentiment onto a vellum flag. She did such a great job combining images from Sunny Days and Dream Big to create perfect flowers (great masking, too)!

And rounding us out for today, a wonderful new home card from pink_lady.

How cute is that little paper pieced birdie from the With Love set? And I love that the patterned paper she used makes me think of house materials. A great way to tie it all together!
