Viva La Verve June Week 3 Recap and Viewfinder

Hi Verve fans, Marisa here with this week's Recap and Viewfinder for Charmaine's Week 3 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 this week's sketch.

Here is my take on Charmaine's wonderful sketch.

I am still enamored with the newly released The Buzz.  Adore the bee image and felt it was a good match for the picnic type theme the gingham paper produced as bees (along with ants!) are often uninvited guests at a picnic.

Used The Buzz Die Set as well as the Flourished Tag die set for my focal panel and since "joy" is my favorite word, I just had to use this sentiment!
Here are a few beautiful cards I spied in the link-up this week...

Ellen's card uses Take Note and I love the polka dotted paper in the background as well as her use of vellum for the sentiment panel.

Lisa's card screams party and summer time with all the bright colours and fun papers she used.

I adore Pink Unicorn's background on her card and it just pops against the white.  Could have used some of that ice cream today too wink, wink!

Be sure to come back on Friday for our fourth and final Viva La Verve sketch for June!
