VLV March Week 2 Recap and Viewfinder

Good morning!  

Anya popping in today to share this week's Recap and Viewfinder for the March week 2 VLV challenge.  Maureen (happy birthday, Moe!) created a great sketch for this week. 

We'll have 4 March 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.

Those pretty flowers from Button Best were just calling my name for this one.  I combined them with the Classy Label Die.  I'll be using this sketch again!

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

Heather used this week's sketch to add to her holiday card stash (great idea!).  I love the combination of patterns and the subtle embossing. 

I am crazy about this cheery Mother's Day card that Lesley shared. I love how she incorporated a fancy shaped tag on her card, and the embossing really adds some great texture.  

And how about this stunningly gorgeous wedding card that Kris created?  Oh so elegant! 

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