Viva la Verve!

Hiya! Happy first Friday of 2014! Well, as if that wasn't exciting enough, today we are kicking off the first Viva la Verve sketch challenge of 2014 AND announcing its very own blog! Yay yay yay!

It is the same fabulous Viva la Verve sketch challenge you've always loved, with a fresh new twist - optional color and inspiration challenges to jazz things up. For all the info on the rules and how to link up your creations, head to the new VLV Blog, where Julee will give you all the deets!

Here is today's challenge:

You can use the sketch by itself, the colors by themselves, or throw them together for an extra good time!

I used the Holiday Treats set from Verve Stamps for my card. I love all the chevron patterns in the set, along with the cute coordinating dies.

I'll be looking for you over on the Viva la Verve blog! Have a great day!
