Viva La Verve - Hi Friend

 photo VLVMarWk1PicA.jpg

Welcome to the first Viva La Verve sketch for March 2014.  Julee is our hostess and has created this wonderful sketch for us to work with as well as a fabulous colour combination.  You can use just the sketch, just the colour combination or both - your choice :)

I was busily working away on on the sketch when it dawned on me that I totally forgot about the colour combination...hate when I do that!!  Didn't have time to make a second card so I have to save this fabulous combination for another time.  

Used MME's Quilting Bee papers (love this paper pad) and one of my favorite Verve sentiment sets, Lean On Me.  Adore the mix of fonts Julee used in this set.  The sentiment panel uses the Classy Label Die and matching image from Love Notes and a stamped image of the heart from More Than Love which was left over from a prior card project.  I finished things off with a touch twine and some bling.

Thanks for popping by and if you want to see which cards I chose to highlight for this week's VLV sketch and Inspiration picture, head on over to the Viva La Verve blog and check it out.

This is lovely, Marisa! As always your designer paper choices work together so well! Love it!

I think your red, blue and grey are a perfect combination for this stunning card! Again, an array of papers (another set added t my wish list!), patterns and images that complement your sentiment wonderfully. Love it!
