SFYTT August Guest Designer!

***Please scroll down for my EtsyInspired post/blog candy***

EEEEEEEEEEEEEK! I've been keeping a secret and let me tell you, I just about exploded! The AMAZINGLY talented Jen del Muro asked me to guest design for her sketches for the month of August!! I saw the email on my phone and since I had just gotten out of bed, I thought for sure my eyes were playing a trick on me! I still cannot believe that I get to be a part of this SPECTACULAR design team for a month! So, friends, stamp your little hearts out because you never know who's looking at your work and when a dream will come true!

So, here's my first official card. I love Jen's sketches, they are so fun and easy to work with! I took this one pretty literally since I'm new. ;) I used Edward from The Greeting Farm for this one. I colored him with my Copics, I had a hard time getting his hair that awesome coppery color that we all know and love. All the designer paper is from the DCWV La Creme stack. The ribbon is recycled off of a package someone sent to me. The chipboard heart is painted with Creative Inspirations Paint in Garnet. The charm is from Artful Inkables.

Here's Jen's amazing sketch that we got to use. She's after my heart with all the hearts and pink she uses on these sketches! Very very much my style! But I think it can be either clean and simple or made with more layering or embellishment. Please play along!

And here's a list of the awe inspiring design team that I get the honor of working along with this month (PS, they are the nicest group of ladies, it's the warmest welcome I've ever gotten from a DT!):
