A SFYTT Card and a Chance to Win Free Stamps

You know I love a good sketch challenge and it has been killing me that I haven't been able to participate in all the great challenges this last month as much as I would like. But now that I have a bit more do-as-I-please stamping time I'm back and with a card using the SFYTT layout posted by Jen del Muro to her blog i{heart}2stamp.com. View the sketch here and take a gander at the samples that she posted with it. Notice all of that awesome zigzag stitching? Isn't it great? Apparently it is all the rage and here I just wanted to play with my much neglected sewing machine. Although I did give it a break so no stitching on this card... well besides the faux kind! :)

Quick notes: main image was stamped in Black StazOn on Whisper White cardstock and trimmer before sponging the edges with Pretty in Pink Classic ink. The second layer is a piece of Regal Rose cardstock that was randomly stamped with a couple images in Regal Rose Classic ink. The edges were paper pierced and sponged with more Regal Rose. The third layer is several pieces of Sugared Designer paper from Basic Grey adhered to an Old Olive mat. The edges were then paper pierced and a piece of ribbon added. A sentiment was stamped in Black StazOn and finally three 1/4" circles of Old Olive cardstock were adhered to the upper right on top of which white half pearls from the Pretties Kit were adhered with Crystal Effects. Can't really see the little Old Olive circles but they are there! To finish the card was assembled on a Regal Rose card base.
