It's time to get sketchy with the MFT Wednesday Stamp Club and sketch 52. Can you believe we've already gone through an entire year of sketches?!? Well fear not, because the weekly sketches will continue in 2012. Woo Hoo MFT!!!

I pulled out Pure Innocence Love You with all my Heart for today's card. She's such a cutie holding that big heart!!!

She's stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured with copics. I paper pieced her dress with one of the patterns from the My Mind's Eye Love Me 6x6 pad. The super sparkly heart was first coloured with a pink copic marker, then I covered it with Fruit Punch Stickles and set it aside to dry.

I used the by the letters die-namics to cut out the X and O from patterned paper (and the pattern on the paper is X's and O's). The tiny little scallop along the image panel is one edge of the scallop ribbon die-namic. It coordinates so well with the little open scallop strip die-namic I used to cut out the grey scallop edge. And finally, the larger banner from the first place award ribbon die-namic was perfect for the horizontal strip.

Here are 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 MFTWSC52. 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!
Be sure to head over to Kim's Blog to view the entire list of design team participants...there's plenty of inspiration for you with today’s sketch!

Here are the die-namics I used:
