 Happy Saturday!  I had a few moments in my craft room today to play!  I created a card for this month's MFT Color Palette Challenge.   I am also using this week's Retro Sketch.  


First of all, I just love MFT Fuse Green.  It is one of those colors that did not jump out at me at first when I purchased the MFT Card stock sampler pack.  It is one of those colors that takes on this richness all its own when mixed with other shades.  I had a chance to make several cards last month using this color.  You can see that ensemble here.   

I think these colors lend themselves to a masculine card.   I have tried for awhile now to not put a flower on every card I make.  The struggle is REAL!   For this card I am using MFT card stock sampler pack.  I stamped the nightshift blue card stock with blue ink using the BG diagonal stripes background.  I stamped it twice to give me this crisscross pattern.  I die cut the orange fizz and fuse green using MFT Pierced Rectangle Stax die namics.  I used the Darling Dots stamp set and versamark to stamp the dotted pattern onto the fuse green.  I used the Notebook Edge die namics to die cut the kraft card stock.  I stamped this panel with the BG Notebook paper background using MFT natural ink.  I ink distressed the edges.  The nightshift blue circle was die cut using the circle element in Blueprints 12.  The kraft circle element was die cut from Blueprints 18.  The orange fizz tab was die cut using Blueprints 12.  I used the button die from Blueprints 14.  I created a bow using the hemp cord.  The sentiments are from LJD Fall Foliage stamp set and the other from You've Got Mail set stamped with nightshift blue ink.  

As always thanks so much for stopping by!
