Viva La Verve June Week 1 Recap and Viewfinder

Hello Verve fans, Marisa here with this week's recap and viewfinder for Julee's wonderful Week 1 sketch. 

We'll have 4 June 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 1 sketch....

Here's my take on this week's sketch using the Psalm 119:105 Plain Jane and Flutterby butterfly die.  After I had completed and photographed the card I realized I did a bit of a goof in that I didn't use two different papers for my background - my bad!  No time to make a new card so I improvised by adding a tiny strip of dark brown to at least split the panels.  Note to self: double check the sketch when you are in a hurry to get one done to make sure you are following it {bashful grin}.

Here are a few beautiful cards I spied in the link-up this week...

First up is this wonderful strawberry themed card by Lisa.  Don't know about you, but I always love strawberry season and it is in full swing here!  My son is a strawberry hound and at the rate he consumes them I think I am going to send him out to pick his own LOL! 

Lori created this delicious card using Small Packages and the Cupcake Frame dies.

Loved how 2amscrapper (such a fun name!) flipped the sketch and created this wonderful coffee card.  Her paper pieced cup is fabulous and love the flower accents. 

Thank you all for sharing your wonderful creations with us! Be sure to join us on Friday for some brand new inspiration for our second Viva La Verve of June.
