Viva La Verve July 2015 Week 1 Sketch Recap

We are into a new month of Viva La Verve sketches and today I am posting my take on Julee's sketch.

Multiple panels can cause me grief at times, so a great way to get around them is to use a paper pad as the papers are already matchy, matchy {grin}.  In this case, my favorite (hoarded), In Bloom MME paper pad came to the rescue.  The sketch was a great way to use up some scraps and I just love this Hello Friend Plain Jane.

The focal panel was a bit stark, so I added a few leaves from Bloom and Grow to soften it as well as a tiny butterfly for some dimension.

Want to know whose cards I spotlighted this week, then head on over to the Viva La Verve blog to find out as well as to getting a ton of inspiration from the gallery.

Thanks for popping in today!
