Thinking of You {MFTWSC140}

It's time to get sketchy with the MFT Wednesday Stamp Club and sketch 140. I know...it's Thursday...but the sketch came out yesterday on the MFT Blog, and that's where you'll find all the details on how to play along for a chance to win up to $20 in MFT Money.

I couldn't resist using the gorgeous new Fancy Butterflies Die-namics, which were just released, for my card today. I thought I'd show you how the arrow elements on the sketch can be any shape.


I started with a Kraft card base then used the Blueprints 3 Die-namics to cut out the Pink Lemonade square. The rest of the elements (except the butterfly) were cut out using the Blueprints 7 Die-namics, including the Sweet Tooth layer.

I cut out the Pink Lemonade and Steel Grey butterflies with the Fancy Butterflies Die-namics then I sprayed them with the MIX-ables Sheer Shimmer Mist and the MIX-ables Steel Shimmer Mist. I love how each of the layers shimmers on it's own. I adhered the body of the grey butterfly then bent up the wings for dimension.

For the sentiment I cut out the Steel Grey talk bubble with the element from Blueprints 7 Die-namics then I stamped the sentiment from Winged Beauties with Sweet Tooth Pigment Ink and I heat embossed it with white powder. The Blu Raspberry was also cut out using the Blueprints 7 Die-namics and I stamped the large dots from Darling Dots with Sweet Tooth Pigment Ink. The colour scheme is thanks to cQc#205 over on the Colour Q blog.

Along the bottom of the card I used the Blueprints 7 Die-namics again to cut out the Razzle Berry strip, then I wrapped some Hemp Cord and tied a Pink Lemonade button.

I hope you'll play along and link your creation on the MFT Blog.

Here are the supplies I used:
