Viva La Verve - November Week 1 Recap and Viewfinder

Hello, Verve fans!  Marisa here today sharing this week's Recap and Viewfinder for the November 2104 Week 1 sketch and Colour Challenge created by Julee.

We'll have 4 November 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 the Week 1 sketch + color challenge.  Feel free to just use the sketch, just the colors (kraft + red + green) or both!

I just love the colour combination Julee chose and it was the perfect way to get another Christmas card done.

I  had the perfect mix of papers for the colour combination and used Joyous Noel for my sentiment and poinsettias.  A few gold half pearls and a gold bow called it a card.

Now on to my Viewfinder picks for this week.  First up is this fabulous tag by Jen using Joyous Noel. Adore the falling snow and cute trees.

Next up is this card by Rosemary using Peaceful Medallions.  Such a wonderful, big, kraft snowflake for the medallions to sit on and a wonderful touch to have a snowflake in the middle medallion.

My last pick for this week is Lea with this Christmas beauty using Peace on Earth.  Love her mix of papers and that cute partridge.

Thanks for stopping by! See you at the next VLV challenge!!
