Hello {MFTWSC84}

It's time to get sketchy with the MFT Wednesday Stamp Club and sketch 84.

I really wanted to use the new Inspired by the Front Porch-Fall set that was released last night, so I flipped the sketch and used the mirror image, which works well with the chair image.

I started by using the Designer Labels 4 STAX Die-namics to cut out the cream focal point then I stamped the image with Memento Espresso Truffle. I added Kraft and Hot Fudge card stocks to compliment the patterned paper which is My Mind's Eye Lavender. I used the Sentiment Strips Die-namics to cut out the flag for the "hello" stamp and added a Natural button.

The card needed to be 'prettied-up' a little more so I used the Layered Rose Die-namics to cut out a Kraft flower topped with another Natural button. The Faux Crochet Border Die-namics cut from Kraft adds another feminine touch to the layers.

On the inside I stamped another sentiment from Inspired by the Front Porch-Fall.

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 MFTWSC84. 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 the MFT 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:
