Speak the Truth - SFYTT

I put today's card together using Verve's Words of Wisdom set and this month's Sketch For You To Try. The papers are from the Simple Stories Fabulous 6x6 collection. Lots of dies ... Verve's Loopy Blooms for the blue gingham flowers, Verve's Tagged Rectangle for the sentiment tag, a Papertrey die for the vertical open circles strip, and the Cat's Pajamas Big Scallop Border for the blue gingham border along the bottom. I added some stitching, distressing, and crochet trim to go along with the vintage feel of the lovely paper collection.

Here's the March sketch again, sponsored by The Craft's Meow:

A handful of the SFYTT Sisters are also posting sketch inspiration today. Check 'em out:

Don't forget, every Saturday, Jen will have links to more sketch inspiration. When you're ready to play, link up your creation HERE.

Have a great weekend!
