Viva La Verve May Week 3 Recap and Viewfinder

Hi Verve fans, it's Marisa with the recap and viewfinder for the May Week 3 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 3 sketch....

Here's my take on this week's sketch...

I needed a baby card so I had some fun playing with pink and blue and lots of white space :)  The sentiment is from Let It Be and is a bit non-traditional, but still works with the baby theme - at least I think it does and I hope the mother-to-be does too lol!  That fabulous swirly stamped frame is from Die Side Kicks and the coordinating die is called Hearts and Swirls.

Here are a few creations that caught my eye this week!
Diana created this lovely card using Poppy Birthday and Happy Hello.  Love the combination of the vertical lattice and beautifully coloured poppies.

Nancy has done a fabulous job colouring her Happy Place flower, and I love how she paired it with the Making A Statement flower and this great verse from Scripture Medley 1.  The white space makes the colours pop wonderfully.

Rosemary's card uses Teacher's Count and I love how she used the dotted stamp from Better Together as her vertical panel.

Thank you all for sharing your stunning creations with us! We still have 2 more sketches left this month, so be sure to join us on Friday for some brand new inspiration!
