I have a card for you using this month's SFYTT sketch. I was lucky enough to win some blog candy earlier this month (thanks to Buttons and Bling) and it included this cool stamp set by Skipping Stones Designs called Heartsong. I love the vintage style and the sheet music imprinted images in the set. The timing was serendipitous because the sponsor for September's sketch just happens to be Skipping Stones Design!

I stamped the music staff image repeatedly across the cardstock to create a pattern and sponged the edges to soften it up. Then I just added the layers following the sketch as shown above. I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder on the Dark Chocolate layer to continue with the music theme, as well as add a nice bit of texture. I love how it turned out!

Stamps: Heartsong (Skipping Stones Design)
Ink: Dark Chocolate (Papertrey Ink)
Paper: Dark Chocolate, Vintage Cream (Papertrey Ink); Marjolaine, Nordic Holiday (Basic Grey)
Misc: Allegro embossing folder (Cuttlebug); Standard Circles (Spellbinders); corner rounder (Crop-A-Dile)
