Three Birds With One Stone

Good afternoon! It's time for another Verve release and they're hosting a whole bunch of sketch challenges to give out free stamps! So, prepare yourself for the onslaught of cards over the next few days. There are five (yup, count 'em) sketches this week! Eek! I figured I would start right away with a triple whammy: Kristina's Color Inspiration and Mojo Monday/Verve Release Sketch #1.

I loved the colors that Kristina was inspired by this week... I want that skirt! I just happened to have the perfect dp sitting in my stash with all of the colors and
even a similar pattern to the skirt! Love it when that happens.

Then I jumped over to the Mojo Monday blog for some sketch inspiration and discovered this week's quintupled challenge. (is that how you say that?) Time to crank one of these babies out.

I popped up the sentiment square and added a few jewels in the bottom right corner, but otherwise stuck with the sketch. I like how it turned out. Definitely a different color set for me, but it's always good to branch out.

Lots more cards coming your way over the next few days! (Four more to go just for this week's Verve challenges!)
