Egg*stra Special Friend *SFYTT*

It's the first Saturday of the month and that means a new SFYTT! The weather has turned warm; at least for a few days, so I thought I would make a springy creation! Spring is definitely one of my favorite seasons!

This month's sketch is sponsored by Unity Stamp Company.

For my card, I started out making all of the panels and pieces using "Pretty Pastels" paper from PTI. My stamps are also from PTI.

The stamping is actually quite minimal on this design. I kept staring at my stamps hoping to find something that required some coloring, but decided on this instead. I got so used to coloring during my guest designer position with flourishes, it seemed weird not to color.

Since the stamping was so minimal, I decided to spice things up by adding some tiny rhinestones to the centers of all of the flowers around the focal image, add some sewing. I also played around with the sentiment to give the card some more visual interest.

I was wishing I had some egg shaped buttons to go along the bottom, but I didn't so I just used some coordinating PTI buttons.
As you can see, this month's sketch has a lot of fun options, especially with pattern paper or different textures. I hope you all get a chance to play along this month!
