Wonderful Birthday {MFTWSC6}

It's time to get sketchy with the MFT Wednesday Stamp Club. Sketch #6 caused me to put my thinking cap on, but that's a good thing, right? I hope you'll play along because you just might win a gift certificate to the MFT Boutique!

I took a break from the Pure Innocence images this week and pulled out my Polka Dot Greetings stamp and die duo. There are always more birthdays coming up than cards in my stash, so I decided to use the birthday sentiment. I paired it with papers from October Afternoon's Fly a Kite collection, along with chocolate, pomegranate, and kiwi.

I created the fun pleated layer with my 3/8" rosette die (currently out of stock, but you could do this with the 1/4" rosette die as well). It was super easy...cut two strips and adhere them end to end. Then just start folding the pleats and adhere! The length of two strips was a perfect fit across my card. I added a rolled rose and some sweet pearls to finish the details.

There's a prize each week for one participant, chosen at random. You may use any stamps and supplies that you wish. Each week a keyword is assigned to the sketch, and this week's keyword is MFTWSC6. All you need to do to enter is upload your card to the gallery at Splitcoast and enter the given keyword in the keyword box during the upload process. After the deadline (noon Eastern on Tuesday) 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!

Be sure to head over to Kim's Blog to view the entire list of design team participants...there's plenty of inspiration for you with today’s sketch!

Thanks for stopping by!
