VLV August Week 2 Sketch Recap

VLV Aug 2015 Week 2 photo VLVAugWk2picA.jpg

It's my turn to recap Maureen's wonderful Viva La Verve sketch for the second week in August.  Always enjoy working with Moe's sketches and this one was no different.

In my continuing saga use up old paper, I found this large print paper with a wonderful mix of colours and big flowers.  It was a bit too busy on its own, so I covered most of it up, but pulled all my other colours from it.

My beloved Jotted Heart die came out to play as did the Rounded Rectangle die and Flag It die set.  I outlined the heart with an image from Love Notes and the rectangle with an image from Treasured Words.  The sentiment is a combination of the Hello Friend Plain Jane and a sentiment from Poppy Birthday.  The subtle pattern on the blue panel is a Versamarked background image from Better Together.   Love combining my Verve sets :)

Want to see who I spotlighted for this sketch, then head on over to the Viva La Verve blog to find out.   You have until the end of the month to submit your card(s) using one or all the sketches from this month and as a result be entered to win a $100 gift certificate to the Verve store!  Well worth playing along for.

Wishing you a wonderful day :)
