Sketch For You to Try


sim-r3-card1So, for those of you not familiar with Jen del Muro's blog i{heart}2stamp, you can check it out HERE.  I saw her sketch (Sketch For You To Try as she calls them, and in this case, SFYTT12) a few weeks ago in THIS post (it's inserted to the right), and just knew that I had to save it to use sometime soon. 

Well, I finally got around to using it for my Stamps in the Mail gals, and I know that they'll love her sketch as much as I did.  You should try it out and give Jen some love when you visit her blog!!  This was a really fun sketch to use, and of course I love the Friends 24-7 stamp set andbeing that it's the only stamp set that my SIM participants have gotten so far, it was the obvious choice for making this card.  As always, I picked a package of Designer Series Paper to work with on each of the 4 projects in the SIM kit, and I used Bella Bleu DSP this month so you'll notice the color scheme is Not Quite Navy, Kraft and Very Vanilla.

Next month is the last round of SIM for this group of ladies, and I am going to throw in a 2nd stamp set - Trendy Trees, to make some fun projects with, so you won' t have to bear with a 4th month of Friends 24-7  :)  LOL  We'll be using the Good Morning Sunshine DSP so be ready for some fun, bright cards.

Anyway, I hope you like the card I made!!!

All supplies used are SU! unless otherwise noted.
