Shine Brightly

VLV June 2014 photo VLVJun14Wk1picA.jpg

 It's time for another Viva La Verve sketch and this week, Julee has a great sketch for us to work with.  It is also a colour challenge week, so you can combine the two, or just use one one of them - your call.

This colour combo had me thinking baby card, so that is what I went with.  Some old Stampin' Up DSP, this fabulous sentiment from Shining Star, the star die from the Scalloped Trim Trio die set, a scatter of stars using the Starry die and a  touch of twine for a little something extra.

It's the first Viva La Verve sketch of the month, and the more times you enter over the course of the month's sketches, the more chances you have of winning the $100 gift certificate to Verve Stamps. 

Thanks for popping by and if you want to see which cards I chose to highlight for this week's VLV sketch, head on over to the Viva La Verve blog and check it out.

Wishing you a fabulous day!

I love those colors in a baby card. I think I would have steered away from baby because of the navy - but you've used it perfectly!

Marisa, time after time, you dazzle us with your innovative crafty-genius, and this card is simply more evidence. How gorgeous it is, with those lovely stars, pretty patterns and beautiful sentiment! New parents will be smitten with this, as am I! Hugs~c
