Viva La Verve with a Twist


Here is my second card. This time I followed the rules and used the color combo. I'm still trying to find my "style" so I'm not sure if this is too busy. But frankly, I'm just glad that I was able to make another TWO cards today! Tomorrow it's back to being a taxi and maid so I'm not sure how soon I will be able to make another card. Thanks for looking!

Viva La Verve! without the Twist

This is my first Viva La Verve Sketch challenge on SCS. I'm really enjoying all of these sketches! But silly me, I was so set on NOT using pink that I completely forgot that the TWIST to this challenge was to use the colors Red, PINK and green!!! So I guess I will have to redo it.

I fussed a bit with this card. I wasn't sure if all the dots were too much. But I think it turned out okay because of all the white space. I pierced the white oval and made it look like the butterfly was going all around the oval then she flew in a whimsy pattern. At least, that was what I was going for. I'm not sure if I like the white but I thought another color would be too much. What do you think?
