Viva La Verve October Week 1 Sketch Recap

VLV Oct 2015 Wk 1 photo VLVOct15Wk1pic.jpg

Another fabulous sketch by Julee this week, and I get to recap it :)

While digging through my paper stash I tripped across this Basic Grey paper I got a few years back and decided to use it (amazing what you find when you sort through things!).  Paired it with one of my favorite sets, Kind Words.  Adore this sentiment from the set and the flower is always a great one to shadow stamp in the background.

A touch of seam binding from Verve's Signature Collection and a touch of sponging around the edges to soften things up a bit called it a card.

You can check out who I have spotlighted this week as well as get additional inspiration for the sketch over on the Viva La Verve blog.

Thanks for popping in and have a fabulous day!

Loving the use of neutrals on your card -- the behind stamped image with the sentiment looks pretty
