Viva la Verve September 2014 Week 1 - Recap & Viewfinder

Hello, Verve fans!  Jen here today sharing this week's Recap and Viewfinder for the September 2014 Week 1 sketch and Color Challenge created by Julee. I love this whole layout! It's right up my alley and these colors - oh my!! 

This is the first of four challenges in September... 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!
Here is the week 1 sketch and color challenge!

Here is my take on Julee's fantastic sketch and color combo.

Here are a few cards from the gallery that caught my eye!

Diana shared a fabulous and elegant card using Better Together, Banner Bundle Die Set, and Sprightly Sprigs Die Set.

Erin created a wonderful gift set using the color challenge and Coffee and Coffee Word Die.

Nancy has created such a lovely sympathy card with Framed Florals and the Bluebells Die.
