Viva La Verve February Week 2 Recap and Viewfinder

Good morning!  

Anya popping in today to share this week's Recap and Viewfinder for the November 2014 week 2 sketch created by Diva Stacey.  Its a fun and playful sketch for this week!

This is the second of four sketch challenges in November .. 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 2 sketch.


Here is my sample using this week's sketch. 

 I used the Bright Spirits stamp set and ribbon from the Autumn Elegance Ribbon Collection

And here are a few cards from the gallery that caught my eye.

Kris B. created this beautiful and elegant Anniversary card. I love the texture on the hearts and the smattering of sequins.

I'm loving this Christmas card created by Ellen. Carrying the holly theme through her design ties all the different patterns and paper together.

And finally, Cresta is throwing us right to Valentine's Day with this lovely little number! The layered hearts and die cuts are so trendy (I heart that little arrow!)

Great job, ladies!  Thank you for joining in the challenge!
