Some Challenge Posts….

Good morning!!

I have had a chance to play along with some challenges in the past week, that I normally don’t have time for. 

A sketch challenge that I love playing along with is Viva La Verve Sketch Challenges at Splitcoast Stampers!!  I love Verve Stamps and can’t resist their New Releases every month.

Here is the card I made for Viva La Verve Week Three, colors from the Playdate Café and the inspiration from Bible Verse Thursday at Christian Paper Crafts.

VLV-BVT119

Here is the color inspiration from the Play Date Café

The current week challenge for Viva La Verve is up right now on Splitcoast Stampers.  Here is the great sketch…

For this project, I chose colors from the Color Throwdown

Here is my creation…

Both cards are gorgeous! I love how you layered everything on that first one, especially the vellum verse over the DP. The stick pins are so cute. Thank you so much for playing along this week at The Play Date Cafe.
