I haven't kept up with the MFT weekly sketch challenges, but there's still time for me to reach my goal of entering more than I did last year. I love this week's sketch & managed to get a card done while hubby went grocery shopping (his job since he retired) & Puppy Fritz was napping.
I used the current MFT color palette & made it a birthday card which qualifies this week for Merry Monday because they're celebrating LeAnne's birthday. Finally had a chance to try out my friend Rosemary's partial embossing technique on the card front--love it! I like the look of the MFT Dizzy Doily die cut with the little pieces left in place--hadn't done that before. The floss threaded through the button was colored with the same Adirondak ink I used for the sentiment which is from MFT Peaceful Wildflowers. I made the wavy square using MFT Wavy Edge die, the flowers are Layered Rose & the leaves are Royal Leaves.
Took me awhile to figure out what elements to use for each of the colors, but in the end I went with my first thought which was to make a flower with MFT Blu Raspberry & Sno Cone felt. Finished off with Doodlebug white dots. I'm also entering at Pixies Snippets Playground since I used scraps for everything but the card itself. The partial embossing lets me also enter at SSS Wed. Thanks so much for taking time to stop by--I know there are so many blogs & only so much time!
