Sending Sunny Thoughts {MFTWSC128}

It's time to get sketchy with the MFT Wednesday Stamp Club and sketch 128.

This is yet another fabulously versatile sketch that I'm pretty sure I'll be referring back to again. I inked up the new You're So Special To Me stamp set, since I didn't have a chance to use her during MFT teasers.

I started with a card base of Whip Cream then added a layer of Blu Raspberry. I built everything on the Pink Lemonade layer. The patterned papers are from the My Mind's Eye Memorable collection and I adore the girlie colours. This is another card that I'm sending off to Maddy, to make her smile. Read all the details about the card drive for Maddy HERE, and I hope you'll send a card (or two or three).

I stamped the adorable girl with Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-Press It Blending Card then coloured her with copic markers. I fussy cut around her because I knew I wanted to adhere her onto patterned paper, which I ran through my swiss dots embossing folder. I popped her up on Jody Boosters for a little dimension.

The space to the right of her was calling out for a flower so I reached for my favourite blooms, Pretty Posies Die-namics. I cut the flower from Cotton Candy felt and backed it with a layer of Pink Lemonade, both for stability and so I could curl the petals a little. I added a Whip Cream Button tied with Hemp Cord and tucked a strip of Cotton Candy grosgrain ribbon across the card. For the tab element along the bottom of the image panel I used the Small Scallop Border Die-namics to cut out some Blu Raspberry then trimmed it down to size.

On the inside I stamped the girl again from You're So Special To Me, with Pink Lemonade Premium Dye Ink, then added a sentiment from Doodle Garden Aloha with Black Licorice Premium Dye Ink.

Here are all the sketchy details:
