Viva La Verve September Week 3 Recap and Viewfinder

Hello Verve fans, Marisa here.  We are into a new month of Viva La Verve sketches and today I am recapping Stacey's wonderful Week 3 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 3 sketch....

 Here's my sample using Love Notes , Jotted Heart die and I Heart You die set. 

Love these Yours Truly papers by Echo Park and had fun pairing them with some of my favorite Verve dies:  the Jotted Heart die and "U" die from the I Heart You die set.  The card needed a little something, something so I added a twine bow to the "U" and a button to the heart.  The "hugs" sentiment from Love Notes was perfect for filling in the excessive white space on the focal panel.

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

Lisa's Halloween card is adorable with the two ghosts from Boo To You front and centre and all the black accenting.

Adore all the orange in Lesley's, especially those gorgeous flowers from Bloom and Grow as well as the fabulous sentiment.

Rosemary's use of The Buzz and matching die set by the same name, paired with all the texture from the burlap, distressing and stitching makes for a wonderful combination.

Adore Nancy's colour combination and elegant card using New Mercies.  

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