May Sketch

Last month I almost didn't make it for Jen's SFYTT. This month, I am getting it done early to avoid the last minute stress. Here is the sketch for May and a link to all the details.

And here is my card...

It ended up being a Mother's Day card for my wonderful MIL. The Stamping Bella image worked well for the die cut I wanted to use although it probably took up more space than the sketch dictated. Thank goodness for creative license, lol. Her dress is paper pieced with MME papers. The flower accent is from the Paper Trey die Beautiful Blooms II die set.

April was such a crazy month that very little stamping happened. Sketches are a great way to get back into the swing of things because one big element of the design is done for you. There is plenty of month left for you to play along too.

Izzies are one of my favorites. I can't get enough of her curly hair and big flowing skirts. You've done a beautiful job of coloring and paper piecing this one up. Love it! - Cathabella
