July Sketch For You To Try


Happy July! I can't believe the year is already half gone. Where does the time go? I always look forward to this time of year though because one my favorite shows Big Brother starts soon.
Since it is the first Saturday of the month it is time for another Sketch For You To Try.

This is what I came up with.

This month out sponsor is My Favorite Things. I chose to work with The Pure Innocence Tea Party stamps I love the PI images and this one has been on my wish list for awhile now so I was really excited to get to use it. I also got the chance to try the Die-Namics rolled roses dies with felt and am really happy with the results. Because the main images were so large I enlarged the sketch to 6x6. I started by stamping the images then paper pieced and colored them with Copic sketch markers. The PP in the background is from Create Paper Emma's Shop. The Lovely Lilac piece on the side was embossed with tiny dots. I finished the card off with machine stitching, Hibiscus Saddle Stitched Ribbon and a Lemon Tart button.
You might think this is just another card but look again.
I made a 6x6 box and added it to the top. Jen did a tutorial for how to make these boxes in the 4x4 size here. I made mine with 2 8x8 sheets of cardstock. I think these would make great favors filled with different flavors of tea for a little girls tea party.
This month please join me in welcoming Debbie Carriere as our guest designer. Also be sure to stop by Jen's Blog and the other sisters blogs to see what they did with this sketch as well.
