Thinking of You {MFTWSC85}

I'm here today to share my card for this week's MFT Wednesday Stamp Club sketch 85.

I'm a little late with my card this week because I was away on vacation and didn't even touch a stamp for over a week. I had a fabulous time though, in beautiful Kelowna, British Columbia, hiking, eating, kayaking, visiting wineries, and of course, doing just a little shopping. :-)

For my card I went the floral route and used Inspired by Flowers 4. I chose patterned papers from the My Mind's Eye Bluebell paper pad and stamped the image with Memento Nautical Blue ink directly onto one of the patterns. The main image and layer was cut out using the Rectangle 1 and Rectangle 2 STAX Die-namics. I added in some navy, yellow, teal and Kraft card stocks to compliment the patterned papers. I used the Oval Tab Die-namics for the sentiment and jazzed up the stamped flower with a Natural button, tied with this fabulous Hemp Cord. You need this Hemp Cord!!! I use it all the time!

I used the Botanical Beauty Die-namics to cut out the flower and added another Natural button to the center. A few loops of Hemp Cord tucked behind the flower finish it off nicely.

On the inside I used the Triple Scallop Border Die-namics to cut out the yellow patterned paper then stamped another sentiment from the set.

You still have time to play along with this week's sketch. Here are all 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 MFTWSC85. 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!
