SFYTT is Back With A Huge Prize Package!

After taking the month of January off, Jen del Muro and the rest of the Sketch For You To Try girls (Amy Rohl, Kelly Lunceford, Leigh O'Brien, and Susan Liles) are back! I'm so excited, as these Saturday sketches have been a sort of anchor to my stamping week. Jen has drawn up some fabulous new sketches for this month and reformatted the SFYTT a bit. A gigantic welcome back prize package is up for grabs, too! Check this out:

Worth playing for?? You bet! Here's everything you need to know:

And my sample:

For several months, I've been admiring the tissue paper flowers that Daniela Dobson makes for her projects. The circles on today's SFYTT were practically screaming for me to give one a try. Daniela has a great tutorial on these HERE. I used the Dahlia Nestabilities to die-cut my pieces -- worked like a charm! On the perimeter of the two smaller circles flanking the big flower, I created a decorative ivory ring using one of the border images from JustRite's Just A Note. The papers are all from the For Him Ooh La La kit by My Mind's Eye.

On the inside, I repeated the floral motif, creating a flower base with the Dahlia Nestabilities and a center stamped with both a border and center from JustRite's Just A Note. The two small flowers are paper die-cuts that are included in the MME paper kit.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you'll give this awesome sketch a try - can't wait to see!!
