November Sketch For You To Try

Happy Saturday. It is also the 1st Saturday of the month which means it is time for another Sketch For You To Try

This month our sponser is Verve Stamps

Julie is offering a set of choice to a SFYTT participant that uses Verve in their creation. This random winner will be announced with the December SFYTT.
This is the sketch

This is what I came up with

I chose to work with the super cute To The Moon Stamp set. I started by stamping the frame on white cardstock, then I cut it into a square and attached it to some Simply Chartreuse Cardstock. Next I stamped the elephant and colored her with grey and pink Copics then paper pieced the ears. When I was done with that I paper pieced some chevron patterned paper into the frame then added the elephant with foam tape. After that I added the baby girl sentiment from the same set. Finally I stamped the hanger image on top of the frame and added a tiny pearl that I colored to match the patterened paper. All the patterned paper used on this card is from the You+Me digital scrapbook kit by Amy Jaz Designs. I finished off the card with some Enchanted Evening Saddle stitched ribbon, a hibiscus button and lots of machine stitching.
Please also join me in welcoming our guest designer this month Broni Holcombe
