Radical {MFTWSC87}

It's time to get sketchy with the MFT Wednesday Stamp Club and sketch 87.

I used à la modes 80's Girl for my card this week. She brings back so many great memories of my teen years...leg warmers, ghetto blasters (am I even allowed to call them that now?), and of course, all the 80's lingo. So FUN!!! I used the Mini Tabs Foursome Die-namics for the little sentiment tab tucked under the image panel.

I chose papers from the My Mind's Eye Happy Day paper has lots of fun patterns and colours. I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured her with copic markers. I paper pieced her sweater and those adorable leg warmers. I used the Rectangle 1 STAX and Rectangle 2 STAX Die-namics to cut out the image panel and the Orange Fizz layer.

I used the Open Bracket Border Die-namics cut from Orange Fizz cardstock along the left edge. The flower embellishment was created using the Prima Donna Petals Die-namics. I cut out the larger layer from Wild Cherry Felt and the top layer from Orange Fizz card stock. The I topped it with a Pink Lemonade button tied with Hemp Cord. I like how the Hemp Cord ties in with the Kraft card stock base layer.

On the inside I stamped another sentiment from the set, turning this into another birthday card for my stash.

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 MFTWSC87. 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!
