4U {January SFYTT}!

Hi everyone!  Happy Saturday!

I am back today with another sample for the January Sketch For You To Try (SFYTT)!  LOVING this sketch!

You may recall that this month the SFYTT Sisters are sponsored by the super swanky The Cat's Pajamas!  Yay!

For my card today, I used the DARLING Peeking set from The Cat's Pajamas.  This set isn't just about Christmas, so I thought I'd use it to create a Birthday card!  All of the patterned paper is Gathering from Authentique.  Love the warm tones of this paper.

I stamped PJ and colored him with Copic Markers.  I then paper pieced his present, and the bow, with the same papers.   I popped him up on circle panels and embossed the panel with the Seeing Spots Embossing Folder.  I added a border with the Simply Scallops Die-Namics from MFT.

I added a ribbon/bow combo and two brads layered onto circles punched with a 1/4 Circle Punch.  I added stars out of cardstock and patterned paper cut with the Stacking Stars Die-Namics, also from MFT.

Here is a closeup of PJ's darling little face peeking over the present.  LOVE him!

Please check out what my SFYTT sisters have created today here:
