Viva La Verve July Week 2 Sketch

Today I am excited to be bringing you Viva La Verve Week 2 sketch for July!  Yes, this sketch inept crafter is dipping her toe in the water LOL.

I dug though my papers and found this fun piece by Cosmo Cricket called Fairy Rings.  Loved the colour combination and fresh, fun feel it gives.  Paired it with a lilac doily, Verve's new Flourish Tag die set, a sentiment from Floral Notes, and wonderful blue bells from Framed Florals and their matching Bluebell die.  As hard as I try, I can't seem to not use a butterfly on my cards...my apologies!  Will keep trying!

For more inspiration from the Divas, head on over to the Viva La Verve blog to see what samples they have come up with and then come play along as I would love to see how you use my sketch :)

Such sweet flowers and cheerful look to this card. Your color combo is perfect and unexpected (well actually that is not true because you mix colors better than anyone). Hugz
