I Never Want to be Without You

Hi everyone!  It’s time to get sketchy with My Favorite Things!  This week I’ve used another of my favorite sets from our latest release, Have Hope.

I really like this week’s sketch BUT it has that tilted panel.  So to make myself feel better (hee, hee), I decided to stamp my girl, color/paper-piece, then cut out and attach her over the tilted panel…not tilted.

To piece the dress, I cut out the each piece, ran a black marker around the edges and adhered.  For that tiny triangular area beneath the heart, I simply colored with a blue/green marker.

I used our new Oval Tab Die-namics and placed a strip of the Little Open Scallop Border along the bottom (and on the inside as well).

On the inside, I used one of the journaling prints from Simple Stories’ “Baby Steps” (6×6) paper pad, stamped the silhouette and added the sentiment.

You can find direct links to DT samples HERE on the MFT blog.  The info is also posted in the MFT Forum in SCS.  (Look for the most recent WSC thread numbered 41.)   And remember, if you upload your card to the SCS gallery using the keyword shown on the sketch, you will have the chance to win up to $20 in MFT money!  One winner is chosen at random each week.

Thanks for visiting!  Have a great day!
