MFTeasers - à la modes Day 1!

There are two more fabulous à la modes this month and today the MFT gals are sharing samples using I've Met My Match. How adorable is she leaning on that big tennis racket!!!

Today is my anniversary so I used this set to make a fun card for hubby...the sentiments are just perfect! She's stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured with copics, but I paper pieced her little dress. I'm loving the colours and patterns in the My Mind's Eye Lime Twist Life of the Party collection...it's so fresh!!

I used Jen's June Sketch For You To Try for the layout. The blue raspberry strip down the center is a perfect match for the colour of her tennis racket and I added a scalloped edge to each side using my open scallop die-namic. I couldn't resist blinging out the circle and the ribbon tab from the first place award ribbon die-namics was the perfect element for the sentiment.

I kept the inside nice and simple with a few layers and some gorgeous hot fudge as the base layer. Then I stamped the image with Colorbox blue lagoon and the sentiment with black. 

Be sure to hop over to Kim's blog for a complete list of all the talented MFT gals who are sharing samples today. I know there will be lots of wonderful eye candy!!!

Thanks for stopping by!
