Welcome to Day 1 of MFTeasers for the month of August! Be sure to stop by Kim's blog at 11:00 am EST for the list of designers sharing project today. Previews today include How Does Your Garden Grow and Clearly Sentimental About Gardens.

Also, be sure to go on over the MFT Forum at Splitcoaststampers to get all the details about this month's Guest Designer Contest. You have a chance to win a Guest Designer spot for next months release and products worth up to $100!

This month's theme is Floral Flair! Here is my card for the challenge, using How Does Your Garden Grow.

Isn't she the cutest! She is colored with Copics and her dress and hat are paper pieced. I also masked her off and sponged the background. The grass with cut with the Die-namics Fresh Cut Grass Die and I used My Favorite Felt. I also made the vertical border with the Open Scalloped Border Die.

Here is a closer look. Notice those adorable felt flowers? This is a new Die-namic Die Cut being released this month, Flower Trio and Leaf. There are flowers in three different sizes and the layer perfectly. I just added a button tied with Baker's Twine to each flower.



This sweet sentiment is included in the set. I used the new flower die and the grass die on the inside too!

Here some other important news!

Today, there is a prize hidden on one of the designer's blog posts. As you make your way through the Teaser Time posts, simply leave a comment on each blog, for your chance to win one of the Brand Spankin' New stamp sets being released on August 4th.
