The August SFYTT Is Here!

Hi everyone!  Happy Saturday!

It's the first Saturday of the month and that means a brand new Sketch For You To Try!  Here is this month's sketch!

This month, the SFYTT Sisters are sponsored by the AH-mazing Verve Stamps!  YAY!  LOVE me some Verve-age!

For  my card I used two different Verve sets...the sentiment is from the fabulous Words of Wisdom set and the flowers are from the gorgeous Great Friend set.  All of the patterned paper is PB&J from Basic Grey.  I started by stamping the sentiment onto a panel of patterned paper and then cut it out and layered it using Rectangle STAX 1 Die-Namics and Rectangle STAX 2 Die-Namics from MFT.

I stamped the flowers using various colors of Fresh Ink (my latest obsession, love this ink!) and arranged them in a trio, adding silver brads to the center.  The leaves were cut with the awesome Leafy Branch Taylored Die from Taylored Expressions.  I wrapped some delish Ivory/Cream Woven Checked Ribbon from The Ribbon Carousel around the horizontal panel and I tied it with a bit of Champagne Twine.

Check out what my fabby SFYTT Sisters have created today here:
