New Verve and a New Viva La Verve Sketch

Hey there, Verve fans!  It's time to share a new Viva la Verve sketch with you today...and...it's also the day to share with you some new Verve! Stacey has come up with a fun style sketch for us to work with, I've included a little surprise hidden sentiment on mine:


And here's the inside:


Verve is releasing 4 new sets today, I've chosen to spotlight the Hello Friend Plain Jane and the Being Awesome Plain Jane. I wanted to highlight both of them on the same card, so I used our new VLV sketch and made the envelope shaped panel into a 'peekaboo' style flap. 

We'll have 4 April challenges... play along with us and link each of your challenge creations to our Entry Form link list. The link list will be up for the whole month and we'll choose a random winner at the end of the month to win a $100 gift voucher to Verve.  Challenge rules can be found on the Rules tab at the top of Verve's VLV blog or by clicking here.  You don't have to complete all of the sketches to win, but the more cards you enter, the greater your odds of winning are.  Verve stamps are not required to play, but we do love to see 'em!  We'll also be highlighting a couple of our favorite link-ups each Tuesday, so be sure to get your links in if you're crafting over the weekend.
