MFTWSC78 You're My Hero

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!!

I decided to use the SUPER cute Pure Innocence Soldier Boy stamp set today, since I hadn't had a chance to use it yet. I colored him with my Copics, and then layered him with Banana Split(Bazzill), Jellybean Green, and Hot Fudge card stock. My stars were cut out of some Echo Park This&That paper. I used the Star Stax Die-namics to cut them out. My scallops are from the Simply Scalloped Medium Die-namics. I used Hot Fudge Grosgrain, Creative Express Spiral Clips, and Michael's brads.

For the inside, I used more of the same supplies.

Here are the Die-namics I used:

For my card tonight, I started by stamping my sentiment with Momento Rich Cocoa ink on some MME Lost and Found 2 Breeze paper. I cut it out using the new Designer Labels 3 Stax Die-namics. It was layered with Hot Fudge card stock. My flower is the new Plentiful Petals Die-namics, and was cut out of Bazzill Jawbreaker and Jelly Bean Green(MFT). I cut two flourishes out with the Fancy Flourish Die-namics. My ribbon is Walnut Seam Binding from the Ribbon Carousel, and my brads are from Michaels.  For my patterned paper background, I used the new Rounded Banner Stax Die-namics.

For the inside, I used another sentiment from this set, and more of the paper from my MME pad. I did sponge the edges slightly to soften it up. 

Here are the Die-namics I have used:
