Dress Up Diva {MFTWSC75}

It's time to get sketchy with the MFT Wednesday Stamp Club and sketch 75.

Can I just say... I ❤ my card!!!! It makes me smile from ear to ear when I look at it!!! Swoon!!!  :-)
I used the adorable Pure Innocence Dress Up Diva. I can't believe she hadn't seen ink yet since she was released. What was I thinking keeping this cuteness under wraps for so long?!?

I have to confess though, I made a mistake on the floral panel. I cut the floral strips in the wrong direction and when I tried to flip them to coordinate with the sketch, the stems were going sideways instead of up and down, and I just couldn't live with that. So the panels of my floral layer are going up and down instead of sideways. The Circle 1 STAX and Circle 2 STAX Die-namics were perfect for cutting out the image panel. I used the Mini Tabs Foursome Die-namics to cut out the Fossil sentiment tab and used the Pretty Posies Die-namics for the yellow polka dot flower. The solid card stock layers are Bubblegum and Hot Fudge.

The image was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and jazzed up with some paper piecing using patterns from the My Mind's Eye Gertie paper pad. I added tiny rhinestones to the flower on her hat and her purse, and placed some little half pearls for her necklace. I think my favourite part of the image is her brown boa. It's so sparkly, and fluffy (maybe because I used coffee bean sparkly fluff! LOL!!) and I want one like it to wrap around myself.

On the inside I combined two sentiments from the set and added a feminine detail thanks to my Double Scallop Border Die-namics. The Hearts a Plenty Die-namics were a no-brainer to coordinate with the sentiment.

Here are all the sketchy 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 MFTWSC75. 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!
