Spring Fling: Challenge 2

Hi Verve fans, it's Amy here this hour. The Divas are all so excited to have you join in with our Spring Fling Blog Party! It's going to be a super fun day!!

I get to present your second challenge of the day - a sketch challenge:

I invited the fabulously talented Denise Marzec to guest design a sample with the sketch. I don't know how she does it, but every single one of her creations is like a breath of fresh air. Have a look:

See what I mean? I love her clean lines, her white background, the touch of sky blue with the patriotic red, white and blue elsewhere, and her well-placed accents. Click for a close-up to see the sparkly swirls. Denise has used an oldie but goodie, Seeing Stars. What a fantastic quote! Thanks for the inspiration, Denise!

And here's my sample:

I've used the new set Easter Joy. I adore the designs on these Easter eggs, and then to arrange them into a wreath? Ahhh, be still my heart! I stamped the wreath and sentiment onto white card stock, clear embossed, and colored with Copics. The leaves each have a dash of clear glitter for a little extra somethin'. I kept the colors and design soft, fresh, and clean to really capture that Easter feel. The patterned papers are all from Webster's Pages 6x6 packs, the ribbon is Papertrey, and the oval button is Making Memories.

Can't wait to see what you do with this sketch!

So are you ready to have some more crafty fun? Just make a stamped card, project or scrapbook page using the sketch provided and upload a photo to your blog or online gallery. Then click the image above to add your link using the Mr. Linky entry form. Entries are due by 11:59pm on Monday, March 8.

One lucky entry will win a $25 Verve Stamps gift certificate!

Have fun and good luck!
