MFTWSC86 It's Your 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 today, I have used the Mouse in the House-It's Your Birthday set. I stamped her on X-Press It Blending Card, and then colored her with my Copics. I paper pieced her shirt with some MME Tangerine paper, which I also used on the base of the card. My cardstock colors are Groovy Guava, Spearmint, and Kraft. For my sentiment, I used the Sentiment Strips Die-namics, and I also used the Wonky Scalloped Border Die-namics for my border. To finish, I used Kraft Grosgrain, and Michael's brads.

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.
