MFT Thursday

So, MFT Monday has now moved to Thursday..why you ask? Well, good question!! The MFT sketch challenge USED to be on Monday's, but now it is on Thursdays!! I really try to participate every week in the MFT sketch challenge, not only because I love MFT and all the wonderful sketches that Cindy Haffner comes up with...but as with all my other stamps, I have a SHAMEFUL amount and this basically forces me to use them!! Geez..did I say MFT enough??LOL!! Anyway, when I saw the sketch, and Julia's Ways To Use It challenge, I knew I wanted to use my new favorite Monster Squad stamp set and some yummy glittery DP from K&Co. Now, I have used some of the other papers out of this FABULOUS paper pack, but I have been hoarding the glittery ones and the one with the flocked bats...YUMMO!! Anyway, I stamped my house twice, I colored one of them and cut it out and separated the roof from the house. The house part was colored with a combination of Prismas and SU markers and the roof with SU markers. I glued the house to the base and popped the roof up to give it some dimension. I then pierced the edges and sponged them with Basic Grey ink. I added some spiral clips with various ribbons and silver brads everywhere and layered it with Pumpkin Pie and Green Galore. The rest is kinda simple, but if you ever need to know anything, please feel free to ask!! Did you notice the base on my card...it is just a piece of Basic Black, no layering...are you proud???LOL!!
Well that is it for me for now!! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!
ETA: I almost forgot...I put Perfect Pearls all over this sucker to make it shiny!!
