June Viva la Verve Winner

Oh my gosh I can't belive I won the Viva la Verve June sketch challenge! When I found out I jumped up and down screaming "I won, I won"...yes my daughter thought I was crazy! I LOVE Verve stamps , plus I have never won a challenge before, so I'm entilted to be a little crazy..(LOL) So let me tell you about my cards.
First up is my patriotic card for the first sketch. I used the new American Hero stamp set, and some DCWV paper from an old Summer Stack.
This next card was for the second week and I kept it pretty simple using some Pink Paislee dp and green cardstock. For the third week I pulled out this gorgeous dp from MAMBI (Black & White Butterfly) I colored the high heels with Copic markers, and popped one up on the sentiment, that came from Hero Arts. This card will probably go to my sister for her birthday later on this month.
Week 4's sketch was easy, but the color combo worried me a little. I don't really use red in my cards, but I think this turned out fine. This was the last sketch and it gave me the most trouble. I almost trashed this card, but I didn't have time to make another one so it had to stay. Probably one of my least favorite cards , so I will redo it next week. (I'm my worst critic) The dp is from DCWV (Cafe' Mediterranean) and the sentiment is from Verve.
Well that's all from me today. Off to enjoy all the sunshine. See you tomorrow with a 4th of July card.
Blessings & Love
