August SFYTT Post #2

It's the 3rd Saturday of August and that means it's time for some more Sketch For You To Try Inspiration from a few of the SFYTT Sisters! Have you had a chance to play along with this month's sketch yet? You've got until August 31st at midnight, so there's still plenty of time to create something and it's a SUPER fun sketch this month! And don't forget we have another amazing sponsor this month  - Verve Stamps!!

In case you didn't know, there are some pretty exciting things going on this month at Verve!! It's the 5-year Anni-VERVE-sary and to celebrate there's a really awesome sale with 10-50% off all stamps and dies in the store. In addition, there's a HUGE New Release coming up next week and Sneak Peeks started a few days ago and will continue the next several days on several Diva Blogs. Finally, there are a few challenges going on with lots of prizes up for grabs! The details about all of these fabulous things can be found over on the Verve Blog, so be sure to stop by there!

OK, now moving on to my SFYTT card...I'm actually giving you guys a Sneak Peek at one of the new Verve sets that will be releasing next week. But first, here's a look at this month's sketch:

And my take on it, which I'm now realizing is very similar to my original SFYTT card I made this month:

That gorgeous flower and sentiment are from the new Lean on Me set, which features 10 awesome stamps - 4 flowers and 6 sentiments. (psst...there's also a coordinating die set, but I didn't get mine ordered in time to play with it on this card, so I had to do things the old fashioned way with a hobby knife - but you can bet next time I'll be using the dies!). Much like my first August SFYTT card, I also used the Tagged Rectangle Die as well as one of the coordinating stamps from Tag Time on this card. All of the patterned paper is from the Woodland Park collection by October Afternoon.

Be sure to stop by these other SFYTT Sisters' blogs to see what they're sharing today with this month's sketch!

Beautiful card Jen! Love all the layers and your pretty dsp. I really like this new flower and a matching die will be a must have.
