July Sketch For You To Try a la MFT

Happy first Saturday of the month to you!  And of course that means it's also time for July's Sketch For You To Try.  This month we are sponsored by one of my very favorite companies - MFT Stamps (My Favorite Things).  MFT was my first stamping love as well as my first major design team so they'll always have a big spot in my heart.

I must admit that this month's sketch gave me pause.  Not too much, but a little.  I decided to go with a sentiment stamps rather than an image - this is from the new Complimentary Greetings set and I used a whole schwack of Die-namics dies.  Behind the sentiment circle I used the smallest circle from the Open Scallop Doily Duo.  For my horizontal panel I used the Fishtail Flag Stax and for the vertical panel I used some creative license and substituted the Large Leafy Flourish.  I added some Mini Rolled Roses for embellishment as well as some stitching and sewing.  The papers are all from Echo Park This & That 6x6 pad and the cardstock is MFT Hot Fudge.  

Here's this month's sketch!

You'll definitely want to hop over and see what the rest of my sketch sisters have cooked up for you - they're amazing!
