I’ve Met My Match

Hi all!  Happy Sunday!  A quick post before we run out to a graduation party.  My Sunday started out watching the Gentlemen’s Wimbledon final.  Both my husband and I love tennis.  I was disappointed in the final, as Rafael Nadal didn’t win, but I did get something done in my room while watching the match.

When MFT released this new a la mode set the other week, I had to get it. I really like the a la modes and this set is just so perfect.  Since Wimbledon was currently on, I wanted to go with greens for the grass court, so I went with Simply Chartreuse and Sweet Blush to lighten it up a bit.  Two patterned papers from Echo Park Walk in the Park worked perfectly here — especially the top, which makes me think of tennis strings and nets.  I paper pieced her dress with the polka dotted paper.  The sketch is this week’s The Sweetest Thing layout. 

Inside I stamped one of the other sentiments, which I just love and added more of the “net” paper.
