Notecard

Decided to combine the MFT sketch challenge with the MFT Color Challenge.  Mostly MFT dies, but I did stamp & white emboss the notes on the flag.  The set is called Contempo Cage & I also used Fishtail Flags & Mini Rolled Rose dies. I got as close as I could to the colors using some of my cardstock scraps. The gems were colored with a Copic to match--just happened to have the right color. For once the shimmer from Wink of Stella on the wing actually shows in the photo.  Love the feathers embossing folder--appropriate, don't you think? I'm also entering at Pixies Snippets Playground. Short post as it's past bedtime. Wishing you all a great week & thank you so much for stopping by my blog.

  1. Hello Greta,
    First apologies not visiting this week, I am having some issues with my internet, I am trying to solve it. The storm did not affect Auckland, thanks for your concern.
    I really like this design, I of course love the embossing but it is the added details that catch my eye, a very pretty card.

  5. This is so pretty. I love the sweet little bird and his wing is so sparkly with the WOS. I like the little rosette at the top of the cage.

  6. Perfection! All of your choices here just make this card extra special, Greta. The tiny rose at the top of the cage, the embossed notes on the flag, the feather embossing folder. And, of course, the blue cage just makes me happy. Good luck in the challenges. (P.S. MFT is quickly becoming my favorite company).
