Make a Wish


MFTWSC188Finally made a card with this darling MFT PI girl. I used last week's sketch, but didn't get done in time for the challenge.  Since I used the current MFT Color Palette, I'll enter that challenge.Print I had fun paper piecing the girl & then used the same cardstock to make my striped background.  Both pieces are die cut with Lil' Inkers Stitched Rectangles. Doesn't the Nightshift Blue felt make a beautiful rolled rose? I used a blue marker for the bands in her hair, the heart (added Crystal Lacquer) & the dandelion.  I lightly sponged kraft ink in her hair & the panel is popped up after tying on some dark blue hemp.  The sentiment from the same set is stamped in Versafine Vintage Sepia. The orange & cream cardstock were scraps so I'll enter at Pixies Snippets Playground. Roses & dandelions are part of summer, so I'm also entering at SSS Wed.  STAMPlorations challenge is to use stamps & dies & A Blog Named Hero also wants dies so I'll enter my card in both challenges. My rolled rose lets me enter at City Crafter Challenge.  In case you're wondering, I got the apple zucchini bread made & it's yummy.  The bad thing is it only took 1 cup of shredded apples, so my fridge is still full of them! Hoping to get applesauce made on my days off. Thanks so much for visiting my blog.

Love the colours on your card. My next or neighbour always has an abundance of apples which he gives me each year. I purree down and put into containers in the freezer. It makes super apple crumble with blackberries added. The hedgerows here are full of them at the moment . It's going o be a bumper crop. Fruit picking here .I come. Hugs Mrs A.

This is the sweetest card EVER, Great!! I think it's brilliant how you paper-pieced the dress with the same paper. I predict this is going to win a bunch of challenges and rightly so!! Hugs, Darnell
