It’s TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY, but before we get to that I get to announce the winner of the $15 Reverse Confetti gift certificate from this weekend’s blog hop. Thanks to all that hopped along with us!
Congratulations, Samantha. Please email me.

As you know, SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY (SFYTT) is back! In December, after several years of hosting SFYTT on my iheart2stamp blog, I retired it. As the plans for Reverse Confetti started to fall into place earlier in this year, I realized that I really wanted it to be part of what I do here, too…and I’m glad I did! On June 1st, SFYTT’s inaugural sketch as part of Reverse Confetti went live and I just LOVE what y’all are doing with it! It’s a pretty basic sketch and lends itself to just about any style.
I got out of my comfort zone just a little on this card, by using a black base. I love how it makes the white and colors POP…
As you can see, I took a few creative liberties with the sketch on this card, and I invite you to do the same with your creations.
For this card, I used the base sentiment from the set, I LIKE YOU. I had originally thought to add a die cut image in the center of the picture frame and tie in the “&…” sentiment, but decided to keep it sweet, simple and a bit scrappy. The stamped heart and diagonal stripes on the bright pink panel are also part of this set.
