Congratulations

Welcome to day six of seven fabulous days of MFT teasers!!

I hope you're ready for pure cuteness because today is Pure Innocence day. I've used the super sweet Pure Innocence Home Sweet Home for my card.

I want to point out how MFT Die-namics dies often yield a bonus cut, like a negative piece that has a fun shape. I used the Squiggle Border Die-namics to cut out the pink lemonade strip which I placed under the image panel, but then I used the negative cut to line the top of the striped paper layer. It's like a two-for-one Die-namics die!!

The image was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured with copics. I paper pieced her jacket and skirt with patterns from the My Mind's Eye Howdy Doody 6x6 pad. I used the Rectangle STAX 1 and Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics to cut out the image and the grey mat. I used the new Mini Royal Roses Die-namic to create the flower accent from banana split felt and used the ticket tab Die-namics for the sentiment.

On the inside I used the fishtail flags STAX Die-namics to create an area for the second sentiment and stamped the image again with Memento Angel Pink ink.
