MFTWSC106-I Adore You

*** For my Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps post, please scroll down!!!*** 

  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 used the SUPER cute new Doodle Garden set-I'm Raptor Round Your Finger. He was paired with some Basic Grey Archaic paper, and my cardstock colors are Orange Fizz, Jellybean Green, Hot Fudge, and Sweet Tooth. My image was stamped on X-Press It blending card, and then colored with my Copics. I used the Oval Stax Die-namics to cut him out, and layered him using the Oval Open Scalloped Doily Die-namics. At the bottom of my card, my sentiment was cut out using the Mini Tab Foursome Die-namics, and under that I used the Double Dot Border Die-namics. My finishing embellishment touches are hemp cord and Michael's brads.

 Here are the Die-namics I have used:

For my project today, I used a wax bag, along with some SUPER cute MME Playdate paper. I used Gumdrop Green cardstock, Wild Cherry cardstock, the MFT Circle Stax Die-namics,  and the MFT Rosette Die-namics to create my sentiment panel. My trinket was stamped on X-Press It blending card, and then colored with my Copics. For my bag, I used the Playdate paper, along with a Small Open Scalloped Border Die-namics from MFT, and some Wild Cherry grosgrain. 

Well, that is it for me for now!!
