Verve Sketches

I love doing both the Mojo Monday sketch and Viva La Verve sketch, both hosted by Verve Stamps as they usually have lots of layers and as you all know I LOVE my layers!

This first card is for Viva La Verve's Challenge #1 for January and ColourQ's Challenge #118. This was such a fun combo and a really good excuse to use up some old DSP too. Cameo Coral was one of those funny colours where I would like it paired with certain colours, but with others I would hate it. However, I do like it with these ones!

Here's ColourQ's swatch... (I absolutely love that bag in the picture and have added it to my birthday wishlist, which is not for another 7 months, but it will give me time to save up for it!)

And here's my card...


My other card is for Mojo Monday Challenge #222, Color Throwdown's Challenge #173 to use Basic Black, Real Red and Basic Gray and for Papertake Weekly's Challenge Anything Goes with the option of something new. This is my newest Verve set which I won in the Hope You Can Cling To Card drive that SCS did a while ago. I have only used it once before and hadn't used the matching die either, so it was time for some Tag Time!


And that's all for this post folks! Thanks for stopping by!
