Create In Me!...Viva La Verve Sketch + Color Challenge!

Happy Friday and Happy 4th of July in the USA!    It is time to kick off another month of weekly Viva La Verve Sketches.   Julee Tilman is kicking off the first week of July with a sketch and a color challenge!   Check out the VLV Blog for more details and inspiration!

At the time I am  writing this post, those of us living on North Carolina's eastern coast were battening down the hatches for Hurricane Arthur.  Hopefully, we will not have it too bad where I am.  We have had some tornado watches and rain with thunderstorms  and lightening already.  We have tornado watches til 8 am.  

Praying the winds are not upwards of 105 miles per hour this far inland.  I live about 2 hours from the ocean so if the eye touches shore we will see some high winds for sure.    Anyway, keep us in your prayers!
For my card I am using Verve's Scripture Medley 1More than Love, and Small Phrases stamp sets along with Verve's Cut Above Flag It dies and Verve's Stormy Skies Ribbon Collection.  I finished my card with some Verve's Shine Bright Sequin Mix.      I combined some Heidi Swap Favorite Things designer papers.  I just love these colors and patterns! 

As always thanks so much for stopping by!



  1. Love the over stamped heart with that sentiment :) Lovely use of the colours too. Happy 4th of July to you :)

  2. I am in RI and it has been pouring rain up here since 7 am. I pray you and your family will be safe.
    Love your card this morning, just beautiful and love the verse, I did not know Verve made scripture stamps, I need to check them out.

  3. This is so beautiful Betty. I love your sentiment and your those colors are so pretty. And to top it off with that stunning bow.


Thanks so much!
