Displaying 20.jpgHappy Monday!  I have a card to share today!  I was last week's winner at The Challenge so I get to guest design with the team for this week's challenge!  I am so thrilled and honored!  I love color challenges and sketches.  When I get to combine the two or choose between one or the other that just makes it more fun!  I mean who does not love choices?  

For my card I am using MFT Stamps products unless otherwise noted. I started with MFT Card Stock Sampler.  I am using primitive white, kraft, hot fudge, electric red, and jellybean green.  I die cut a hot fudge base.  I cut another piece of hot fudge and die cut it with MFT Blueprints 15.  I stamped this panel with MFT Diagonal Stripes background stamp in Memento cocoa ink.  I die cut a piece of kraft card stock with MFT Vertical Stitched background die namics.  I stamped with MFT Romantic Script background using MFT Pigment Sweet Tooth ink pad.  I ink distressed the edges a bit.  
I am also playing along with Stampin' Celebration Inspiration Challenge.  I just love the images and warm tones with a few touches of red and green!

I used MFT Blueprints 20 to die cut the quilt piece in several colors.  I ink distressed the edges to some of the pieces and others I inked with versa mark to give a richer patina.  Once I had my card assembled, I worked on the corner piece.  I die cut the leaves from MFT Blueprints 14 in jellybean green. I added some shading to the leaves with copic markers.  Love the effect.   I then die cut the mittens from Cool Days dienamics. I stamped the coordinating image from Cool Days stamp set using MFT hybrid black licorice ink pad.  I colored with copics.  To add a sentiment I die cut one of the tiny tags from MFT Blueprints 10.  I stamped the sentiment using MFT hybrid black licorice.  I punched a tiny hole in both the tag and the mittens and added a hemp cord bow.  I attached the leaves behind and added to the card.  I finished with a few brown sequins(Verve Stamps).  

As always thanks so much for stopping by!
