It is the first Saturday of May so it is time for another Sketch For You To Try

Our sponsor this month is Your Next Stamp
Even though I didn't use their images on my card you should still check them out because they have a lot of cute stamps. Make sure to take advantage of the discount too.
This is what I came up with

Continuing with my use of the PTI YOF sets, I used this month's flower Lilly Of The Valley. I started by stamping the large sweet pea image on a paper doily with Momento Black ink then colored it with Copics. After that I cut the doily down to a smaller circle. Next I pieced together the background using patterned paper from Melissa Frances 5th Ave Paper Pack, PTI's Bitty Dots Paper Pack and Crate Papers Portrait collection then I machine stitched it all together. When I was done with that I added a scalloped circle and a pink butterfly that was cut from a Love Live's Here Die and covered it with angel dust glitter. I attached a piece of Aqua Mist Satin Ribbon down the middle and made ruffles with it. To finish the card off I stamped the Merci sentiment from the PTI Birds of A Feather Set.
This month please join me in welcoming Jen Tapler as our Newest SFYTT Sister and Kerri Michaud as our Guest Designer too.
Also make sure to stop by Jen's Blog and the other sisters to see what they did with this sketch as well.
