Viva la Verve October 2014 Week 1 {Sketch + Color}

Welcome to our first Viva la Verve sketch of October!

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

The first challenge of each month is a sketch + color challenge.  October is my favorite month of the year, I just love the changing colors all around, so I picked orange, ocean blue and yellow for this month's color palette.

We'll have 5 October 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 Week 1 sketch + color challenge.  Feel free to just use the sketch, just the colors (orange + ocean blue + yellow) or both!

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