The last of the sketches........

So, I had challenged myself to use all of the Viva la Verve sketches this month.  There were 5.  Here is the last one and last day to submit them to SCS.  I especially liked this sketch with all it's layers!



I have to say that these Verve sketches are very addicting!  You will be seeing me use more of them for sure!  Here I've used the newest set from Verve:  Making a Statement.  My friend, Jen, and I fell in love with this set.  I love the sentiments, the flowers, the birdies, the coordinating dies!  My color scheme is loosely based from this week's Color Throwdown #157.





Thank you soo much for stopping by today!  Your comments are so appreciated!!
