Viva La Verve September Week 1 Recap and Viewfinder

Hello Verve fans, Marisa here.  We are into a new month of Viva La Verve sketches and today I am recapping Julee's wonderful Week 1 sketch.

We'll have 4 September 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 sample using the Stronger Love set.

I flipped through some of my older MME paper pads and found these adorable birds in their Lime Twist collection.   Needless to say, a "love bird" card was an obvious choice.  I kept things on the white and bright side, used a sentiment from Stronger Love, hearts from the Heart Quartet die, and the hearts border die from the Scalloped Trim Trio set.

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

Loved Nancy's colour combination and how she used Strong Anchor and the matching Nautical die set along with the star die from the Scalloped Trim Trio set for her bottom border.

Inge used on of my favorite colour combinations on her darling Christmas card.  Adore the open circle, Christmas tree combination and added stars and twine to the tabs.

Lisa's use of the flowers and beautiful borders paired with a bold Happy Birthday Plain Jane sentiment and a touch of pearls caught my eye.

Be sure to join us on Friday for our next September sketch as well as some inspiration from some of the Divas.
