Thank You {MFTWSC114}

It's time to get sketchy with the MFT Wednesday Stamp Club and sketch 114.

I flipped this week's sketch on it's side and used the new Pretty Poppies stamp set, along with the High-Rise Lowercase Alphabet Die-namics to create this 'thank you' card.

I began with a card base of Whip Cream, then added a layer of Steel Grey and Kraft. I used the long script stamp from Pretty Poppies to stamp the background with Kraft Premium Dye Ink. I used the Circle 1 STAX Die-namics to cut out the floral paper (from the Pebbles Walnut Grove collection). Then I used the Open Scallop Doily Die-namics to cut out the Blu Raspberry circle and added some clear rhinestones for a little bling. I wrapped some Hemp Cord and tied a bow for the vertical element.

For the sentiment panel I started by lining up the letter dies then covered them with a strip of painter's tape to keep them from moving. I ran them through my Vagabond to cut out the white patterned paper so I could use the negative space of the letters. Then I used the Fishtail Flags Layers STAX Die-namics to cut out the white patterned paper flag and I also cut out the pink patterned flag which I adhered underneath. I inked up the 'thank you' sentiment from Pretty Poppies and stamped it onto the flag using Black Licorice Premium Dye Ink.

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 MFTWSC114. 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!
