February Viva La Verve Challenges - Week 1 and 2

It had been a while since I participated in Verve Sketch Challenges on SCS. Life happened and time was running!!!!! But I loved all the 4 sketches from February and decided to play. There is still time if you are interested to participate as well - Click here to visit their thread on SCS Forum.(Verve stamps are not needed, I use them as it is a good time to put these stamps to use).

Here are my cards from Week 1 and 2,



For both these cards I used VERVE Stamp set called Making a statement. I just love this set (the font for sentiments is amazing I think). I am not getting paid to say this - but I love VERVE and their fast shipping and this stamp set is on their spring sale right not.

They also have a die for the loopy flowers, next time I will for sure get those as it will be easier than cutting the by hand.

Here are the sketches,

These are both very pretty, Banu. Love the mix of colors and patterns on the second one, and the cute little birds!

Banu, both are beautiful but the second is my favorite. Love the colors and the stripes with the little birds and the sentiment.
