Viva La Verve June 2015 Week 1 Sketch

VLV JUNE 15 Week 1 photo VLVJune15wk1pic.jpg

It's recap time for the first Viva La Verve June sketch and this is the lovely sketch Julee is providing for us to work with.

The big circle reminded me of a doily so that is what I went with and the rest fell into place.  However, it needed a little zip so I added the red butterfly.

The sentiment is the Psalm 119:105 Plain Jane and the butterfly is my favorite Flutterby die.

After I had completed and photographed the card I realized I did a bit of a goof in that I didn't use two different papers for my background - my bad!  No time to make a new card so I improvised by adding a tiny strip of dark brown to at least split the panels.  Note to self: double check the sketch when you are in a hurry to get one done to make sure you are following it {bashful grin}.

Head on over to the Viva La Verve blog to get a ton of inspiration and to find out whose cards I have spotlighted this week.

I got that butterfly because of you and I have just realized that I have never used it! I love the natural blues, greens and patterns topped with the vividly colored butterfly.
