August SFYTT

Whew, August is almost a memory! I figured I had better get on Jen's monthly sketch if I was going to get it done. My oldest son is in need of a birthday card for a young lady so I combined the two. Here is a look at the sketch of August.

I recently ordered the SU set "Raining Flowers", I am such a sucker for flower stamps!! And it is another 2-step set. Noticing a theme around here lately?? I only used a single image this time, part of the versatility of these kinds of stamps.

The floral paper is from Authentique, I love the teal, pink, green and pale orange. Mmmmm! There are so many color combos waiting to be created with just this one pattern. Originally, the strip behind the image was another pattern from the paper pack but I wasn't lovin' the look so I went with an embossed piece with leaves instead. The sentiment is also SU but I can't remember the name of it now, maybe it came from a recent mini catalog? The cream ric rac adds a feminine touch, it's just stapled in place with Tim Holtz's mini stamper (love that thing!!). I added 3 small pearls to the upper right corner cause it seemed a bit empty.

You have until tomorrow night to play along with this fun sketch!

Glad you got the sketch in, Tracy, because you're card is soooo pretty!

Missed you on Saturday at the stamp show! We had a blast and supported all the businesses! We ARE going to use what we bought!
