VLV February Week 4 Recap and Viewfinder

Welcome back to Viva la Verve!

It's Charmaine with this week's recap and Viva la Viewfinder.  Anya posted a fabulous sketch on Friday, and this is my take on it . Then, scroll down to see who caught my eye and for this week's Viewfinders!

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 4 Sketch:

And here is the card that I created using this week's sketch.
I used the Sunny Days set for my card.  I stamped and cut out the flowers and then cut along the petals so that I could curl them in.  I used the coordinating Leafy Sprigs Die for the leaves and added some of the Shine Bright Sequin Mix to add a little sparkle.  :)

Here are a few fabulous creations that I noticed in the gallery this week!
 I love this colorful card from Hillary!  It's such a happy card!  She used the Holiday Treats set.  This card just makes me smile!

 Here is another happy card from Petra!  I LOVE the bright colors she used and the adorable flowers!  What a fun card!

I loved this card from Rosemary!  I love the gold accents.  The gold washi tape, the gold sequins and of course the gold die cut "coffee"  using the Coffee Word Die along with the One Cup set.  

Beautiful cards, ladies!  Thank you for joining us for this week's sketch challenge.
