Happy Birthday

vlvwk4maureenplut

Happy Friday everyone!  Let’s start the weekend off right with a new sketch AND inspiration photo over on the Viva La Verve forum.  I took some colours and the butterfly from the inspiration photo and then played around with the sketch elements.  There’s no ribbon in this week’s sketch, but I really wanted to use some more of Verve’s Spring Fling ribbon ‘cause that’s just me and it is so delicious!  I’m using a sweet birthday sentiment from Small Celebrations which just so happens to be ON SALE right now in the Verve Store.  For LOTS more details about today’s challenge, check out the Viva La Verve forum!  It’s a great way to start the weekend.  Woohoo! Cheers!
