The World Is Brighter Because Of You

VLV July Week 5 photo VLVJulWk3picA.jpg

Today's Verve sketch is brought to us by none other than the Head Diva herself, Julee :)  She has a great mood board we can play along with too!

I just love the colour combination Julee put together via the collage, and focused on the left hand corner of the board for my inspiration: the striped green container on the floor, bright pops of orange, grey from the chair and a touch of turquoise.  I used the Rounded Scallop Frame die to make my turquoise frame, the graph paper image from Making A Statement to create the pattern on the grey panel and the sentiment is from the wonderful Let it Be set.

This is the fifth sketch in July and if you complete all five sketches and post them over on the Verve forum on SCS you are eligible for the random draw to win a $100 gift certificate to the Verve Store!

Off for our last day of swimming lessons and then off to enjoy some of our glorious sunny weather that just won't stop.  It has been a month since we last had rain, and no place is prettier than BC in the sunshine -- yes, I'm just a bit bias LOL!

Have a fabulous weekend everyone.

Marisa, this is just gorgeous, so vibrant and colourful. Love the different layers and the little red flag border at the bottom and the twine is a nice finishing touch.
