Viva La Verve November 2014 Week 4 Sketch

VLV Nov 2014 Week 4 photo VLVNovWk4pic.jpg

It's time for another Viva La Verve sketch and I get to be your hostess this week!

Continuing on my Christmas card run, I had great fun making this card.  Loved the colour combination of the patterned paper, and just had to use this fabulous tree die from the Winter Fun Set as it is one of my favorites.  The star die from the Scalloped Trim Trio set added a nice trim across the top and a few sequins from the newly released Holiday Sequin Mix along with some gold twine and bells added some sparkle.  I did move things around a bit to make the card work - a little artistic license was a must LOL.

Remember, the more VLV sketches you complete each month, the greater your chance of winning the $100 Verve gift certificate!  A great way to do some Christmas shopping for yourself wink, wink!  You can check out all the challenge details over on the Viva La Verve blog.

Hope you enjoy the sketch!
