Happy Monday!  It is Spring Break week for me so that means I get to play in my crafty space more!   I am playing along with a few blog challenges today.  For my first card, I am playing along with The Curtain Call inspiration challenge, The Sweet Sunday Sketch, and The Paper Players die cut challenge. 

I am using MFT Products.  I started with MFT smooth white, sno cone, kraft, and field day card stocks.  The card base is smooth white.  I die cut the field day card stock with Blueprints 15.  I stamped with fine check using field day premium ink.  I popped this panel using foam mounting tape.  I die cut a smooth white and sno cone panel using Horizontal Stitched Strips.  I die cut a Square Pierced Stax using kraft.  I stamped the sentiment  from Fall Foliage in hybrid black licorice ink.  I then die cut Peaceful Wildflowers die namics in smooth white.  I stamped a couple with limelight ink, a couple with field day ink, and one with green room ink.  I arranged and added to the card.  I finished with a few clear sequins. 

For my second card I am playing along with this week's MFT Weekly Sketch Challenge, Colour Q, and Just Us Girls "Spring" Challenge.  

I started with MFT smooth white, daffodil, green room, ripe raspberry, and razzleberry card stocks.  I used the Proof Positive cover plate to create most of my focal image.  I layered the cover plate with green room that I die cut with Blueprints 1.  I love inlaying die cuts to create a fun new pattern with this cover plate.   

Once I added the heart. I then added a daffodil yellow frame.  I used the Stitched with Love die namics and die cut a needle and thimble with Silver Foil Card stock.  I stamped the thimble with hybrid black licorice with the Stitched With Love stamp set.  I layered my elements to comply with the sketch.  I added a few stitched buttons to finish the card.   

As always thanks so much for stopping by!
