Viva La Verve April Week 4 Sketch

 photo VLVAprWk4pic.jpg

Stacey has brought us this week's Viva La Verve sketch and it showcases her wonderful use of layers and skewed panels - once a horrible nemesis of mine! Thankfully, many sketches with skewed panels later, I embrace them willingly LOL.

The banners on the sketch reminded me of a celebratory event, so I chose this wonderful sentiment from Let It Be to take center stage.  And, since I still had these MME Chalkboard papers out on my desk from my Mojo Monday card, I decided to use them again.

The sentiment is framed with the Rounded Scallop Frame die, and I  used the Pennant Trim die to cut out a black and a purple banner as the black banner alone was a bit too over powering and had to be dulled down a bit, especially in lieu of the sentiment!  Last time I checked, black and brighter do not exactly go together LOL!  The Award Banner die created the secondary banner and a touch of twine with a button finished things off. 

For more inspiration using this week's sketch, head on over to the Viva La Verve blog.

Wishing you a fabulous day!
