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 tonight I paired this sketch with the For the Record 2 Documented pad, and my Clearly Sentimental about Friendship set. I used the First Place Award Ribbon Die-namics for my flag piece under my sentiment panel. My flowers were made with the Mini Royal Rose Die-namics in Banana Split(Bazzill), and Pacific Point(SU). My ribbon is Sweet Tooth Grosgrain from MFT, and I used large Michael's brads, and a spiral clip. To finish, I added a flourish using the Fancy Flourish Die-namics in Black Licorice. 

Here are the Die-namics I have used:

We encourage you all to play along, and to enter your card in the weekly draw for a $15 gift voucher to the MFT Boutique. Simply follow the sketch and create a card or other paper creation. You may use any stamps and supplies that you wish. Each week, a keyword is assigned to the sketch. All you need to do to enter, is upload your card to the gallery at SCS, and enter the given keyword in the keyword box, during the upload process. After the deadline, we randomly choose a winner from that week's entries and the winner will receive a $15 gift voucher. If the winning card uses MFT stamps, the participant will earn a $5 bonus, for a total of a $20 gift voucher! That is up to $100 per month in prizes, JUST for playing along. We hope you'll join us in 2012.
