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 GORGEOUS new set, Inspired by the Front Porch-Spring set. I stamped my image on X-Press It blending card, along with my sentiment, and then colored it with Copics. It was then layered with Steel Grey cardstock. I used a Pink Lemonade Flourish cut out with the Sentimental Flourish Die-namics. My paper is from the MME Ruby paper pad, and I also used Wild Cherry cardstock, along with my Steel Grey and Pink Lemonade cardstock. The bow I used was created with the Beautiful Bow Die-namics, and I also embellished with Michael's brads.

For the inside, I used the same supplies.

Here are the Die-namics I have used:

For my card today, I paired one of the SUPER cute new Trinkets, which was cut out after coloring on X-Press It blending card, with last month's Somebunny Loves You stamp set. He too, was colored with Copics on X-Press It blending card. I then layered it with Banana Split(Bazzil) and Berrylicious(MFT). My paper is from the Lilybee Designs Buttercup paper pad, and  I added Sweet Tooth Grosgrain, a spiral clip, and Michael's brads.
