SSS & MFT

Here's my second card using the SSS Flower Cluster die.  I used Zigs & a damp brush to color the outline which I didn't use in my first card
The color is more vivid than I captured in the photo & it's so pretty on SSS Fog cardstock.  I brushed the die cut with Wink of Stella--just love the shimmer! 
A black Zig has become my favorite way to get tiny splatters & the sentiment from SSS Thoughtful Messages was stamped in Versafine Smokey Gray.  I still have a lot of gems & fortunately one package included gray--adds some sparkle, but doesn't distract from the delicate focal point.  I'm entering SSS Flickr Challenge 101, SSS MondaySSS Work It Wednesday.


I really want to get back to regularly entering MFT challenges & use my many goodies from them.  Kind of wierd, but I'm starting off with a Halloween card! 
Actually, when I saw the sketch it reminded me of the star border in MFT Primitive Pumpkins.  I stamped it in Distress Oxide Twisted Citron on a kraft card base & stamped the sentiment from the same set in Memento Rich Cocoa.  I attached Grape Jelly felt to cardstock & then die cut with one of the pumpkins in the coordinating die set.  I tied on a piece of brown twine & added a little wooden star covered with Nuvo Glaze before attaching it to the card.  Finished off with 3 SSS Mocha Java sequins.  I'm entering MFT Sketch 393.  Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.
