Verve Release Sketch Challenge

Hi everyone! Happy Saturday! This weekend I thought we'd have a little fun and I'd post a special sketch challenge as we countdown to our release on Sunday night. I'll be picking three random winners from cards using today's sketch to receive their choice of any one of our new release sets for free. Entries will close at 6:00PM Eastern on Sunday, March 8, so tell your family you NEED to stamp today! :)

To play along, just make a card with the provided sketch and upload to an online blog or gallery. Then leave a link in the Mr. Linky form below to the place where we can see your creation! Links will close at 6:00PM Eastern on March 8 and winners will be announced that night during our release party on SCS. Verve Stamps are not required, just go get inky! ;)

The release party starts at 8PM Eastern tomorrow (Sunday) night and we'll be chatting up a storm and giving you the first looks at all the new sets. Come join the fun!

If you need a little inspiration to get your wheels a turnin', here's my sample using the sketch. Remember, you can always change the shapes up to fit your mood. In this case I wanted to use my new EK Success fleur de lis punches and thought a circle went better with the elegant feel of the card. The Psalm 51:10 stamp is one of the new Plain Jane stamps that will release tomorrow night!

And if you're just tuning in, be sure to look back through and comment on each Sneak Preview post this week for your chance to win that day's set. For even one more chance at free Verve Stamps, hop on over to the Mojo Monday Blog and play along with this week's sketch contest! Have fun and good luck!



Links are now closed! Thanks for playing! :)
