Viva la Verve July – Week 3 and 4

Back with another two Viva la Verve sketches!!

This first one is for the July, Week 3 challenge. I thought this was a fun sketch and I pulled out a card kit from my stash for it. It turned out a bit more plain than I expected, but I think I’m okay with it. It sure lets you see that gorgeous paper!! Oh, and I love the coloring on the flower.

Week 4 was fun too. This one used leftovers from an earlier card kit. I wanted to show off this pretty gold paper and ribbon and found this pattern from Basic Grey’s Marjolaine collection to go with it. I struggled with the main image for this card, but settled on these simple leaves, which I thought matched the pattern paper. For the most part, I’m quite happy with how this one turned out.

The last sketch for the month is posted tomorrow, so I’ll be back soon with another card!
