MFTWSC89-You Are Purrrrfect

Hey everyone, and happy Wednesday!! That means it is time for another Wednesday Stamp Club challenge from My Favorite Things! It's MY favorite sketch challenge!

For my card, I used the super cute Pure Innocence set, Purrfect. I stamped her on X-Press It blending card, and then colored her with my Copics and paper pieced her dress with some Blink of an Eye paper from MME. She was then layered with Aqua Mist(PTI), Banana Split(Bazzill), and Really Rust(SU) cardstock. My sentiment and white panel are Sweet Tooth cardstock from MFT, and I also used Sweet Tooth Grosgrain, and Michael's brads. I used the Fishtail Banner Stax Die-namics for my long striped panel, and I used the Sentiment Strips Die-namics for my sentiment.

For the inside I used another sentiment from this set, along with the ball of yarn image that comes with it.

Here are the Die-namics I have used:

For my card tonight, I stamped my Holiday Trinket on Sweet Tooth cardstock with Rich Cocoa Memento ink, and on a piece of The Merry Days of Christmas paper from MME. I cut out just the banner from the PP, and the whole circle from the Sweet Tooth cardstock. My layers underneath are cut with the Sweet Stack Label Die-namics, and I cut them out of Hot Fudge cardstock, and more of the paper. To embellish my card, I used Michael's brads, Walnut Seam Binding, the Large Fancy Flourish Die-namics, and Open Bracket Border Die-namics from MFT.  

Well, that is it for me for now!! Hope you enjoy all the previews!! Happy Hopping!
