Make a Wish!

MFT_WSC_196Finally had some time to play in my craft room this weekend.  I am popping in with a card for this week's MFT Weekly Sketch Challenge.  I am also playing along with week's Color Throwdown #312.  

For my card, I started with MFT cardstock samplerI love these colors for this week's Color Throwdown Challenge.  

I always find it challenging to try and create a card other than the obvious Halloween theme with these colors.  I really needed a cute Birthday card, so I thought I would give it a whirl with these shades.  

I die cut the kraft card stock with Blueprint 15.  I stamped a portion of the kraft with Fine Check Background stamp.  I just love the background stamps. I inked the edges with versamark for added dimension.   Next, I used the circle cut out stitched elements from Blueprint 18.  I cut out the focal circle in the kraft card stock.  This circle die leaves behind a stitched frame.  I finally got a chance to ink
up my new MSTN Cute Critters!  I just love these critters.  I die cut the coordination image from MTSN Cute Critter dienamics.  I colored with Copics.   Isn't that raccoon adorable? 

Next, I die cut the orange fizz panel with Fishtail Flag Stax.  I stamped the sentiment from CS Birthday Chalkboard Greetings.  I used black ink and versamark to ink around the edges for added definition.  For the additional circle element in the sketch I die cut the layered cut out star element and button from Blueprints 18.  I finished my card with some Hemp Cord  that I just swirled beneath the sentiment panel.  I love how these colors turned out for a Birthday card.

As always thanks so much for stopping by!
