VLV October Week 4 Sketch

VLV Oct 2015 Week 4 photo VLVOctWk4pic.jpg

It's recap time over on the Viva La Verve blog and this week Chrystine has provided the sketch.

I had a tough time with this one and though I got it done, I'm not sold on it.  Just one of those cards that not matter what I tried I wasn't sold on it.  But life happens and I like to keep things real so here is my take on the sketch.

Used the Romans 12:12 verse from Good Work for my card.  Such a powerful verse which so aptly outlines some key points to live by.  Framed the verse with the flowers from the set using the co-ordinating Good Work Flower die set and since things were quite unbalance on the card I used longer tails on the oragne bow to fill in the space.

Want some added inspiration for this sketch?  Head on over to the Viva La Verve blog and browse the gallery.  In addition, you can see who I spotlighted this week.

Enjoy your day!
