Viva La Verve May Week 2 Recap and Viewfinder

Hi Verve fans, it's Charmaine with the recap and viewfinder for the Week 2 Viva La Verve sketch!

We'll have 5 May 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....

Here's my take on this week's sketch...
I used the Be Blessed set for my card along with the Petal Points Die Set and the Sprightly Sprigs Die Set.  To add a little sparkle, I added the Pink Sparkle Sequin Mix!

Here are a few creations that caught my eye this week!

This colorful number by Lesley just made me smile.  Such a happy card with beautiful colors!  Lesley used the Bloom & Grow set along with the Birthday To You Plain Jane.

This sweet card by Rosemary is just beautiful!  I LOVE the distressed flowers. . .so pretty!  Rosemary used the Poppy Birthday set as well as On Occasion.

Here is another beautiful, colorful card by Nancy!  Such happy colors and I LOVE the Loopy Blooms!  She also used Proverbs 31:25 for her sentiment.  

Thank you all for sharing your stunning creations with us! We still have 3 more sketches left this month, so be sure to join us on Friday for some brand new inspiration!
