…Mercy’s Tuesday Sketch Challenge #87 (MTSC87)

Happy Sketch Challenge Day!  Today’s post is very special…I’ll be using my sample for today’s sketch to preview one of Verve Stamps soon-to-be-released sets called “Dream Big”!  This 18-piece set includes 3 solid flowers, three solid branches, three solid stems, one solid leaf, and eight sentiments.  Me and some of the other Divas are showcasing this fabulous set, so I will be linking them below along with the Muses.

Now for this Tuesday’s Sketch Challenge #87:

MTSC87 My Sample (previewing “Dream Big” from Verve Stamps):

Now for the Divas who are showcasing “Dream Big” today:

How would you like to win this set?  Be sure to leave a comment back at the Verve Blog each day during the previews.  One lucky commenter will be randomly chosen from the official sneak peek posts to win the set(s) being peeked that day. Deadline for comments is 6pm EST Friday, August 20.

Now it's your turn! Create a card or scrapbook layout using the sketch above, and add your creation using the InLinkz linking system below.  Be sure to use the keyword MTSC87 when uploading to a public gallery.  Be sure that your link works before you leave the sketch post, and I will post “Mercy’s Magnificent Musings” on Sunday!

Happy Stamping!
