By Marisa Ritzen featuring Psalm 1:45 Plain Jane, Heart Quartet and Flutterby dies.

I used this yummy Echo Park paper for my paper as it has one of my favorite colour combinations - pink and green.   Wanted to have a card in my stash to give to my daughter when she starts university to encourage her through the changes and stress starting university will no doubt cause her.

Viva la Verve July Sketch 2 Recap

Hi there Verve fans!  Julee here with a recap of our second July sketch.

 We'll have 2 July challenges... play along with us and link your challenge creations to our Entry Form link list. The link list will be up for the whole month and we'll choose TWO random winners at the end of the month to win a $40 gift voucher to the Verve store

Here's my loose interpretation of the sketch.  
For some reason my panels just kept skewing, and I figured why fight it?  And my pennants turned into cut up snowflake medallions.  A girl's got to do what a girl's got to do right? {grin}


by Julee Tilman featuring Pinecone Christmas and the Joy to the World plain jane.
