Viva La Verve December Week 2 Sketch

VLV Dec Week 2 photo VLVDecWk2picA-1.jpg

Welcome to Week Two of December's Viva La Verve Sketch Challenges over at Splitcoast Stampers.  I'm  hosting this week's sketch and since this month we are bringing back some of our favorite VLV sketches, I chose this fabulous sketch by Teresa!  I loved it so much in 2011 that I made three cards using her sketch,  and now I get to make another.

I'm still deeply in love with Teresa Collins' Santa's List paper pack -- happy sigh -- so couldn't resist pulling it out once again.  I'll take any exucuse to use a heart on a card, no matter the time of year,  so out came my beloved Jotted Heart die.  Love this musical score paper and it was perfect for the heart.  I added a snowflake and blinged it up as I just love sparkle at Christmas :)

Want to win a $100 gift certificate to the Verve Stamps store?!  All you have to do is complete all the sketches in a given month and load them on the Verve Challenge Thread on Splitcoast Stampers and a random winner will received the gift certificate.   Easy peasy, and with three recent releases, there are lots of new goodies to chose from as well as a sale of some previously released goodies.  Nothing better than doing a little shopping for yourself!


Thanks for popping by today and have a fabulous day!

Very cool mix of papers and shapes on this very eye-catching card. Very non-traditional Christmas colors which is my favorite way to do Christmas cards this year! The heart is lovely too. Hugz!
