MFTWSC82-Happy Birthday

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 used the SUPER adorable new Birthday Girl stamp set from the Pure Innocence line. I stamped her on X-Press It Blending card, and then paper pieced her skirt with some MME Dilly Dally paper. The rest of her was colored with copics, and then she was layered with Wild Cherry(MFT), Taken With Teal(SU), and Going Gray(SU). I used the Bracket Tab Die-namics for her sentiment, and some of the yummy new buttons from MFT. I used Sweet Tooth, Wild Cherry, and Berrylicious. My brads are from Michael's, and my ribbon is Wild Cherry Grosgrain and Stone Twine.

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

Here are the Die-namics I 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.

For my card today, I used the Three Bugs in a Rug paper pad called Blast Off. I paired it with Baja Breeze(SU), Orange Fizz(MFT), and Soft Suede(SU). I used the MFT Pinking Edge Die-namics for my border, and the Oval Stax to cut out my image. My guy was colored with Copics, and his sack was cut out of Blast Off paper. To embellish, I used Michael's brads, and Natural Jute Twine.
