The October SFYTT Is Here!

Hi everyone!!  Happy Saturday!  It's the first Saturday of the Month...which means a brand new Sketch For You To Try!  Meet the October SFYTT:

This month, the SFYTT Team is sponsored by the AWESOME Waltzingmouse Stamps!  What an AMAZING selection of stamps Claire has...they are all so gorgeous!

For my card today, I worked with the GORGEOUS Peace and Plenty set.  This set has SO many beautiful images and sentiments, it was hard to choose which one I wanted to work with for my card.  I decided to ink up the cluser of fall fruits and foliage.  I stamped the image in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Buttercream Cardstock, colored it with Copic Markers and then cut it out.  The rectangle panel was embossed with the Square Lattice Embossing Folder, but I stamped "Happy Thanksgiving" before embossing it.

I added silver brads in each corner and then attached the focal image with Jody Boosters.  The patterned paper is Farmhouse from Crate Paper and for the horizontal panel on the sketch, I added Twill Tape.  I created the bow with The Bow Easy and unfortunately, didn't add any machine stitching.  My machine is SUPER wonky lately, but thanks to the enabling abilities of my friend Jody Morrow, a Janome Sew Mini is one it's way to my stamp room right now.

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

Thank you again to Claire and Waltzingmouse Stamps for sponsoring us this month!  I already have an idea of the next card I am going to make with this set!  Thank you Claire!
