October 2012 SFYTT

Well, here we are again already - first Saturday of the month and time for another fabulous Sketch For You to Try!! I hope you all had a chance to play along with us last month - Lots of exciting things in store for participants of the monthly SFYTT this year, including a chance to win another fabulous huge prize package at the end of the year!! All of the details can be found on today's post over on Jen's blog, with some of the details outlined in the "In a Nutshell" graphic at the end of this post. We have another amazing sponsor this month - Market Street Stamps!

First, here's a look at this month's fun sketch:

I had fun with the sketch this month, but did make two pretty obvious changes, but I think it still "counts"...those two little tilted squares? I straightened them out and turned them into layered ribbons. And then I used a circle instead of a rectangle for the main image panel. It just worked out better that way.

When I ordered my stamp set, Autumn Greetings, I initially planned to use that super cute scarecrow image. But then when I started playing around with the sketch and my papers, I just really liked the way that fun pumpkin looked so I changed my mind. Now I can't wait to make a card with that scarecrow though! Anyway, all of the patterned papers on my card are from the Witch Hazel collection by October Afternoon (I'm slightly obsessed) and I added some ribbon, a button and twine from my stash. I really like the way this one turned out!

Be sure to stop by the rest of the SFYTT Sisters' blogs to see what they've done with this month's sketch! And a very warm welcome to our Designer of the Month, Stacey Schafer! Don't forget to stop by her blog to see what she's created as well.
