Viva la Verve July Week 2 Recap and Viewfinder

Hello friends, Amber here with this week's recap!

We'll have 5 July 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.

Just as a reminder, here's our week 2 sketch!

And here's a card I created!

I sure do love that Sparkly Dreams stamp set and coordinating Butterfly Dreams dies! The tags are from the new Flourished Tags die set. I also stamped the diamond background from Deco Borders in versamark and embossed them in Liquid Platinum on the black stripes of the patterned paper! Fun way to add an extra POP to your card :)

Now lets see a couple beauty's I found in the link up so far!

First up is this beauty by Rosemary!

I sure love the Shining Star stamp set she used and that amazing polka dot star! Fabulous colors Rosemary, love it!

Next is this gorgeous card by Hillary!

Love that stripey background and the beautiful Psalm 94:18 Plain Jane she used.

One more quick card by Nancy!

I love these bright, happy colors and the ever fabulous Floral Notes stamp set and matching Floral Notes die set!

Thank you all for sharing your wonderful creations with us! Be sure to join us on Friday for some brand new inspiration for our THIRD Viva La Verve July sketch! Thanks for popping by today!
