Viva La Verve September 2014 Week 3 Recap

 photo VLVSept2014wk3pic.jpg

I get to host this week's Viva La Verve sketch recap and this was my take on the sketch.  Loved the inspiration photo and pulled the colours from it. 

I was a bit stumped by the two smaller circles in the sketch, so I decided to use a little artistic impression and go with some embossing paste polka dots.  The sentiment panel was screaming for me to use the fabulous Coffee Word Die, so I did LOL!  The green coffee mug was die cut using the Cuppa Joe Die Set and inspired by the green flower stems.  Finished things off by adding a few coffee beans around the cup to ground it.

Want to see whose card I spotlighted this week?  Head on over to the Viva La Verve blog and find out!

You rock the sketch challenges, Marisa! This is such a great inspirational coffee tag card! I love that you used a "doily" for the offset circle and those fab embossed polka dots for the corner treatments!! Hugs, Darnell

Perfect way to use the paste Marisa. I love this. I am drinking some coffee while I catch up with all your wonderful creations today. I bought some paste but haven't opened it up yet - this makes me want to go get it now and play. Hugz!
