Friends with Fred {MFTWSC12}

It's time for sketch #12 with the MFT Wednesday Stamp Club.

I decided to ink up our furry friend Fred Bear Oopsie Daisies. Isn't he just so cute with that little grin on his face and the bouquet of flowers!?!

He's coloured with copics and I added yellow rhinestones to the flower centers for  a little sparkle. I used an actual piece of thin cherry wood veneer for Fred's backdrop...it was super easy to cut with my nesties!! I cut out some fuzzy felt grass with my fresh cut grass die-namic and added an upsy daisy die-namic bloom.

You can't really tell because I covered up most of it, but I used my jumbo scallop die-namic to cut out the orange strip. I seem to have omitted the small tab layer...frankly I had all my layers adhered then I looked at the sketch again and saw the tab...doh! Oops! The patterned papers are all from my new Jillibean Soup Dutch Mustard mini pad. I adore that so many companies are now making smaller paper pads...the patterns are so much more in scale for cards! Thank you paper makers!!!

Here are all the sketch 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 MFTWSC12. 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!
