Viva La Verve September Week 2 Recap and Viewfinder

Hello Verve fans, Marisa here.  We are into a new month of Viva La Verve sketches and today I am recapping Charmain's wonderful Week 2 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 2 sketch....
 Here's my sample using a verse from Scripture Medley 3.

Phillippians1:6, now part of the Scripture Medley 3 stamp set, is my life verse, and oh how I love knowing that I can use it on a card any time because I have it in stamp form - thank you Julee!!   The papers are from Basic Grey and Echo Park, and since I felt the corner needed a little something I used the butterfly and leaves from the Butterfly Dreams die set to add a little interest.  Unfortunately, my butterfly looks black in the photo, but is actually a deep plum to match the papers, honest!


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

 Lisa made a lovely fall themed card using this week's sketch and these adorable pumpkins from Bountiful Harvest.  Love the touch of gingham ribbon and the mini maple leaves stole my heart - after all I am Canadian and we do have a maple leaf on our flag {grin}!

Vickie's cutie patootie turkey from Bountiful Harvest made me smile.  Love how she coloured her turkey, added the stitched circles and used a wonderful mix of Fall coloured papers.

Hilary's use of burlap and gorgeous sunflower caught my eye.   Great texture on her card and the added gems are a lovely touch.  

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