I am playing along with this week's MFT Weekly Sketch Challenge and The Color Throwdown.  I just love these warm colors and this fun sketch!

For my card, I started with MFT Card Stock Sampler.  I am using Primitive Cream, Factory Green, and Tangy Orange.   I cut the background factory green using Blueprints 16.   I used Proof Positive Cover Up to cut the top portion.  I cut this cover up using factory green and primitive cream card stocks.  I stamped the factory green panel with Fine Check background using versamark.  I inked the edges with versamark as well.  I inlaid the primitive cream proof positive pieces to mimic the sketch.   I love how it turned out.  It looks like a warm quilt pattern.

Next, I die cut the deer from Christmas Cuteness dienamics.  I stamp the deer from the coordinating Christmas Cuteness stamp set.  I used MFT Hybrid Ink Black Licorice ink pad.  I colored with copics.  I added a few touches of gold glitter to the antlers.  

For the sentiment, I die cut the double ended stitched fishtail die from Blueprints 2.  I stamped the sentiment from LLD Perk Up stamp set.  I used some soft yellow ink to stamp the stitched swirl image onto the sentiment panel to add some extra whimsy.  I die cut the tiny heart in tangy orange card stock using the smaller heart image from LLD Coffee Cup die namics.    I added some richness to the tangy orange heart using versamark.
