VLV February 2015 Week 1 Recap & Viewfinder

Welcome back to Viva la Verve!

Stacey here today with this week's recap and Viva la Viewfinder. Julee posted a fabulous sketch on Friday, and it is wonderful!  Scroll down to see who caught my eye and is in my Viewfinder this week!

The awesome sketch inspired me to create this love-themed card!
I took a few liberties with the awesome sketch by using a tall rather than wide card base and layered the papers up all cozy an snug!

I stamped the sentiment from the More Than Love stamp set over a circle die cut and added a sweet Heart Quartet Die Set heart and a few gold sequins from the Holiday Sequins Mix.

We'll have 4 February 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.   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....

Here are a couple of pretty creations that I noticed in the gallery this week!

Tricia at Simply Stamping created this beauty with Verve's Wonderfully Made stamp set.  The colored flower is gorgeous embellished with the gem, and the sentiment is glorious with the highlighted "you" banner!

Petra at Cards Creative made this gorgeous card using Verve's Lean on Me and Bloom & Grow stamp set with coordinating Elegant Leaves Die!  The flower/leaf cluster is stunning!
