Finally had some time to play in my craft room this weekend. I am popping in with a card for this week's MFT Weekly Sketch Challenge. I am also playing along with week's Color Throwdown #312.
For my card, I started with MFT cardstock sampler. I love these colors for this week's Color Throwdown Challenge.
I always find it challenging to try and create a card other than the obvious Halloween theme with these colors. I really needed a cute Birthday card, so I thought I would give it a whirl with these shades.
I die cut the kraft card stock with Blueprint 15. I stamped a portion of the kraft with Fine Check Background stamp. I just love the background stamps. I inked the edges with versamark for added dimension. Next, I used the circle cut out stitched elements from Blueprint 18. I cut out the focal circle in the kraft card stock. This circle die leaves behind a stitched frame. I finally got a chance to ink
up my new MSTN Cute Critters! I just love these critters. I die cut the coordination image from MTSN Cute Critter dienamics. I colored with Copics. Isn't that raccoon adorable?
Next, I die cut the orange fizz panel with Fishtail Flag Stax. I stamped the sentiment from CS Birthday Chalkboard Greetings. I used black ink and versamark to ink around the edges for added definition. For the additional circle element in the sketch I die cut the layered cut out star element and button from Blueprints 18. I finished my card with some Hemp Cord that I just swirled beneath the sentiment panel. I love how these colors turned out for a Birthday card.
As always thanks so much for stopping by!
