Splash of Colour

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

Now that we've teased and tempted you all week long, it's almost time for you to shop for your favorite Brand Spankin' New products from MFT. But first... it's time for our Die-namics Feature and Pre-Release Pep Rally! Our Design Team has been busy creating jaw-dropping and inspiring projects for you, and we've saved the best for last. We've taken an in-depth look at this month's Die-namics, while re-visiting the amazing sets being released tonight at 10 PM EST RIGHT HERE in the MFT Boutique. And while we are at it, how about we make your life even easier with a "cheat sheet" of all that's new?  Head over to the MFT Blog to print out a shopping list.

I decided to focus on flowers for my card today and used FTL186 for the layout. I chose one of the sentiments from Clearly Sentimental about Art, and patterned papers from the Authentique Splendid 6x6 pad. I used the Squiggle Border Die-namics die to cut out the rich razzleberry strip. Then I created patterned paper flowers using the Large Royal Rose Die-namics die, the Mini Royal Roses Die-namics dies, and the Royal Rose Die-namics die. I love having four size options for this gorgeous rolled rose!!! I used the Fancy Flourish Die-namics die to cut out the green patterned paper.
