The November SFYTT Is Here!

Hi everyone!!  Happy Saturday!  It's the first Saturday of the month, which means a new SFYTT Sketch!  Take a gander at the November SFYTT, pretty fab no?

This month, the SFYTT Sisters are sponsored by the one, the only Verve!  Sigh...I LOVE Verve.  Like, L.O.V.E. Verve.  I wish there were more time in the day to ink up the OODLES of Verve sets in my collection.

I have SO many Verve sets that have yet to see ink, so you can except to see lots of Verve creations with this sketch this month!  Originally, I was going with a different set, but the two I used today were calling my name!
I started with the focal panel, and stamped "Life Doesn't Have To Be Perfect To Be Wonderful" from the beautiful Words of Wisdom set onto a piece of patterned paper.  All of the papers on my card today are from Breeze by My Minds Eye.

I then pulled out the AMAZING Great Friend set and stamped two of the flowers onto some more patterned paper, and then cut them out.  I attached them to the card with Jody Boosters and added different buttons to the center of each flower.

The background was embossing with the Seeing Spots Embossing Folder and I added some crochet trim, a border cut with the Little Open Scallop Strip Die-Namics from MFT, and a bit of selective stitching.

Head on over and check out what my fabulous SFYTT sisters have created with this sketch today!
