MFTWSC109-Be Yourself...

 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 one of my FAVORITE Clearly Sentimental sets, Clearly Sentimental About Art. I stamped my sentiment on Sweet Tooth cardstock with Black Licorice ink, and then cut it out with the Fishtail Flags Stax Die-namics. I added a paint brush from the Artist Pallet and Brush Die-namics in Fossil, and colored the end with my Copics. I used the MME Playdate paper pad, which I paired with Fossil, Gumdrop Green, Wild Cherry, and Sweet Tooth cardstock. I cut my Medium Fancy Flourish out with Wild Cherry cardstock, and used some Michael's brads as embellishments. My buttons are Gumdrop Green, Wild Cherry, and Sweet Tooth, and all have hemp cord tied in them. They were placed on the soon to be released Button Border 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.

For my card tonight, I paired the new Journal It- Library Card with an older Pure Innocence set, Making a List. I used the Insert It-Notebook Paper Die-namics to create my background, along with some Lilybee Designs Double Dutch paper. At the base of my card, I used the Little Open Scallop Strip Die-namics in Nightshift Blue. My other cardstock colors are Wild Cherry, Sweet Tooth(both from MFT), and some Banana Split(Bazzil). I added a piece of Wild Cherry Grosgrain, with a Nightshift Blue button, and some Hemp Cord tied through it. I stamped one of my sentiments from the Library Card set in Wild Cherry, and cut it out, and the other was stamped on one of the Lead the Way Die-namics on Sweet Tooth

Here are the Die-namics I have used:
