Speak Truth

VLV Mar 2014 Week 2 photo VLVMarWk2picA-2.jpg

Welcome to another week of Viva La Verve sketches.  This week's sketch is brought to us by Maureen.

I cheated on the background a bit as I used some of the wood panel paper from MME's On The Bright side.  Love this paper pad, as the rustic wood background reminds me of the side of an old barn.

Following along that thought, I used the Loopy Blooms die set to add some pink polka dotted flowers as they remind me of the first sign of spring coming up against an old barn.

To say I love this sentiment from Words of Wisdom is an understatement.  I am not a status quo girl and have stood my ground many a time by speaking truth in a relativistic world, so this sentiment is very dear to my heart.

Would love for your to come and play along with us!  You don't have to complete all the sketches to be entered to win the $100 Verve Stamps gift certificate, but the more sketches you enter the more chances you have of winning.    

Enjoy the sketch and make sure you come back tomorrow for Verve's newest release Hop!

I love the sentiment as well. The soft pink flowers against the bold sentiment are gorgeous Marisa.

Wow! That is one awesome sentiment!! Your design using this sentiment as the focal point is absolutely beautiful. I love the weathered wood background.

Yes, that is one strong sentiment; a call to action we need to bear in mind! Beautiful showcase, with the charming polka-dot flowers and oh-so-striking weathered barn-door background! Another 'card I love' added to the list!

Love your card and that sentiment too! Beautiful Marisa!

This is so very beautiful! I love the barnboard look behind your sentiment and flowers.

This card is simply wonderful. The sentiment is terrific and means so much and the background paper is one I'd probably use to death! Love this card!!!!!
