Viva La Verve - October 2014 Week 4 Recap and Viewfinder

Hello, Verve fans!  Marisa here today sharing this week's Recap and Viewfinder for the October 2104 Week 4 sketch by Charmaine.

This months we'll have 5 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! 

Here is Charmaine's Week 4 sketch:

Here is my take using Charmaine's sketch.  The centre cluster was fun to play around with and the heart was such a fun addition.  Still using up my Stella and Rose MME papers and I created the sentiment using various words from Inspire Hope.  Love how you can build sentiments with this set.

Now on to my Viewfinder picks for this week.

First up is a delightful cupcake treat by Nancy ThomasLove how she used the Small Packages set to create her cluster of goodies and the enamel dots are a fabulous touch.

Next up is Lyn's card.  Adore the coral and grey colour combination, fabulous cluster of flowers from Great Friend and her use of the wonderful sentiment from Poppy Birthday 

Third up is Karen with a pretty in pink creation using Pink Power.  Love the sparkly silhouette and unique die she matted it on.
