MFTWSC103- Baby, It's Cold

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 started by using a Sweet Tooth base for my card, then layered it with Gumdrop Green and Wild Cherry. My paper is from the Bo Bunny Mistletoe paper pad. I stamped my image from the Pure Innocence Merry KISSmas   set, and then colored her with Copics and paper pieced parts of her with my Bo Bunny paper. My ribbon is Sweet Tooth Grosgrain, and I used Gumdrop Green buttons and Maraschino twine as well. On my card base, I used the Rounded Banner Stax Die-namics to create my striped panel, and the Little Open Scalloped Border Die-namics created my border at the bottom of my card. To finish, I added some Michael's brads, and my sentiment using the First Place Award Ribbon Die-namics.

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.

For my card today, I paired my fairy with the MME A Mother's Love paper pad. My cardstock colors are Bazzill Wax Lips, MFT Sweet Tooth, SU Groovy Guava, and SU Taken with Teal. I paired it with some Sweet Tooth grosgrain from MFT, a spiral clip, and some Michael's brads.
