Viva la Verve July 2014 Week 4 Recap + Viewfinder

Hey there, Viva la Verve fans! Sarah here with the July 2014 Week 3 Recap and Viewfinder!

This is the fourth of the 4 challenges in July... 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!  
Below is Stacey's fab sketch for this last week of the month, lots of layers to play with here!

Here's my take on all those fun layers!

I knew I wanted to go nautical, so out came the always beautiful Adjusted Sails Plain Jane. I stamped on a Banner Bundle die cut and accented with the anchor die from the Nautical die set

Now on to some of the cards in our July VLV Gallery that caught my eye. 

Sheri was in a nautical mood as well, using the Strong Anchor stamp set! 

Nancy's lime green take on the new Happy Doodles set is just so fresh!

Ellen used Take Note, beautifully tying in with the patterned paper on her card!
