VLV February Week 2 Recap and Viewfinder

Good morning!  

Anya popping in today to share this week's Recap and Viewfinder for the February week 2 VLV challenge.  Charmaine created such a fun sketch - have you played along?

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 2 sketch.

And here is the card that I created using this week's sketch.

Happy Days is one of my favorite sets, I love the bold sentiments and that swirl is such a fun accent.  It worked perfectly for the circle element on the sketch.  Apparently I needed some color in my life (is everything out your window white these days, too?) because this baby is bright!

Here are a few fabulous creations that I noticed in the gallery this week!

I'm crazy about this fun shaker card that Hillary created using the Strong Anchor and Wonderful Marvelous sets.  Aren't the colors fantastic?

Petra is at it again with another stunning creation this week.  The pop of pink is the perfect finishing touch for this pretty graphic card.

This little love note is the perfect card to send to a sweetheart or a sweet friend.  Lori's classic navy and red color combo is a stunner.  The super cute envelope is from the Take Note set - have you seen just how jam-packed this set is?

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