Happy Saturday!  I am popping in with a few cards to share.  For this first card I am playing along with MFT Weekly Sketch Challenge, MFT Color Challenge, Just Us Girls (sentiment as focal point), and Seize the Birthday (Anything Goes).

I started with MFT Blueberry, Wild Wisteria, Limelight, ans Smooth White card stock.   I LOVE the NEW COLORS!  I stamped the blueberry panel with fine check background using Premium blueberry ink.   I die cut the pierced square stax with blueberry.  I die cut the wild wisteria with a smaller pierced square stax to layer according to sketch.  This wild wisteria
panel I stamped with pinstripe background stamp using premium wild wisteria ink.  Next, I used Tag Builders #3 Blueprints to die cut the pierced scalloped frame using smooth white card stock.   I stamped this panel with MFT Birthday Greetings stamp set using blueberry ink.  I stamped it again at the bottom using MFT Happy Everything stamp set using wild wisteria ink.  I die cut a pierced star stax using silver foil card stock.  I then die cut limelight card stock with Happy die namics.
I stamped the word with Happy Birthday background stamp using Premium limelight ink.   I finished my card with a few silver sequins. 





For this card I am playing along with Retro Sketch, Fusion Card Challenge(inspiration), Colour Q, and Simon Wednesday Challenge (Anything Goes).






I just love the inspiration photo with all the different sizes and colors of hearts.  The embossed frame heart caught my eye, too!  I started with MFT card stock in smooth white, ripe raspberry, electric red, and peach bellini. The card base is electric red.  I die cut the stitch panel using Blueprints 15 in smooth white.  I stamped this panel with diagonal stripe background stamp using grout gray ink.   I cut the grout gray panel from Blueprints 10 and used Blueprints 9  to die cut the hole and the hole enforcer. For the outline stitched heart I used Tag Builders 3 Blueprints.  I used all of these components to create my tag and heart elements in the colors listed.  I finished with a hemp cord bow.






For card 3, I am playing along with CASe this Sketch, Always Playing with Paper Color Challenge, ShowCASe Your Style, and Simon Monday Challenge (clouds).



                       This card is  very CAS for me!  I started with MFT smooth white card stock.  I stamped the background with Striped background stamp using Lemon Chiffon ink.  I die cut the  pierced rectangle stax with blu raspberry.  I stamped this panel with  MFT Blue Skies Ahead stamp set in Hybrid Black Licorice ink.   Instead of hot air balloons, I used Layered Umbrella die namics.  I layered three together for extra stability.  I added some clouds from Cloud Cover Up and finished with a few sequins.


As always thanks so much for stopping by!
