Viva la Verve August 2015 Week 1 Sketch

Welcome to our first Viva la Verve sketch of August!

Thanks so much for playing along and sharing all your fabulous cards in July! I announced our July Viva la Diva last night, so scroll down or click here to view our winner announcement to see if you're this month's lucky Viva la Diva! If not, play along this month for another chance!

We'll have 4 August 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....

I combined my sample card with this month's Celebrate theme for our August Diva Inspiration Challenge.  We'd love for you to play along!
