 Happy Friday!  I had some time to get crafty today!  I am playing along with this week's MFT Sketch Challenge, MFT Color Challenge, Simon Says Monday "I" Challenge, I chose ink blending. and Simon Wednesday Challenge to sparkle and shine.  

I started with MFT smooth white cardstock base.  I die cut another smooth white panel using Blueprints 20.  For the focal image I die cut smooth white and steel gray with rectangle pierce stax.  I white embossed a sentiment from True Friends and Smile stamp sets. 

I ink blended using MFT ripe raspberry, jellybean green, and limelight inks.  I added the word "smile" die cut from Blueprints 15 using mirror gold card stock.  I die cut the scribbles using the same mirror gold card stock for my corner accenting.  I felt like the card needed a few more gold touches, but sequins were too busy looking.  I chose to die cut a pierced snowflake die namics using the same mirror gold card stock and used the tiny gold chads as my tiny accenting.  I love how it turned out. 

As always thanks so much for stopping by!
