How Kind of You -- Viva La Verve



I'm excited to be hosting this week's Viva La Verve sketch challenge over in the Verve Forum on Splitcoast. For those not familiar with the VLV challenge, each Friday a new sketch is posted. Participants have until the end of the month (or longer, depending on when the last Friday falls) to complete all of the challenges that month and thereby qualify for the prize drawing of the next Verve release in full! Definitely worth playing for, so check out all the 4-1-1 HERE!

I've come up with what I think is a super easy sketch this week. Hope you enjoy it!



My sample features a flower made using the Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die, some My Mind's Eye Stella & Rose papers, and a stamped sentiment from Verve's Faithful Phrases. I stamped the sentiment onto a scrap of designer paper, then punched it out using an older deco square label punch by Stampin' Up. I then tucked the label behind that gold strip so that it would hang down like a tab. The flower center is a gem from a Tim Holtz's Accoutrements pack.

Don't forget the other Verve challenge I'm hosting -- Get Your Diva On. This is your chance to win a guest design spot for an upcoming release. More details HERE. Deadline is Sunday night!

Have a beautiful day, friends!
