Ski Chick {MFTWSC45}

It's time to get sketchy with the MFT Wednesday Stamp Club and sketch 45.

Have you started working on your holiday cards yet? Well, if you haven't, tick tock...there's only six and a half weeks til Christmas day! This card makes #35 for my Project Christmas 2011. I'd better pick up the pace a little (or revise my mailing list! LOL!!).

I used the new Pure Innocence Ski Girl because she's so freaking adorable!!! The skis are a separate image so I did a little masking to get them 'behind' her. She's paper pieced with patterns from the My Mind's Eye Be Merry 6x6 pad and coloured with copics.

Surprisingly, I didn't change a thing about this sketch, and even used the tag you're it die-namic (which you can now purchase without the stamp set) for the focal point. The new icicle border die-namic was perfect for the top strip, especially with a little Stickles along the bottom edge to make the icicles shimmer. The polka dot strips were cut out using my simply scallops medium die-namic and I added a snowflake accent with the medium size of the let it snowflake die-namics.

The inside is super simple with the sentiment and two of the other images in this set.

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 MFTWSC45. 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!

Here are the die-namics I used:
