VLV April Week 3 Recap and Viewfinder

Hi everyone! Marisa here with another look at our sketch for the second week of April and a look at some of the highlights so far!

We'll have 4 April 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.

In case you missed it, here is our sketch for this week's challenge:

Anya's sketch this week has so many options and fun elements! I LOVE the bit of twisty fun twine or ribbon included in the sketch!

Here's my take on it:

Ellen created a wonderful mixed media card using Happy Place and matching Happy Doodles die set, the Pennant Trim die and Rounded Scallop Frame.

Dawn used this adorable bunny from Hoppy Easter (get it quick if you want it as it will be retired once it is sold out), and created a fabulous background panel using one of the sentiments from To The Moon.

My third pick was Lesley's adorable card using Rain or Shine.  Love the aqua/orange colour combination, paper pieced umbrellas and falling rain drops.

Thank you all for sharing your wonderful creations with us! We still have one more sketch left this month, so be sure to join us on Friday for some brand new inspiration!
