MFT Weekly Stamp Club and New Challenges

Greetings friends!!  It was a busy weekend here in my house.  Both kiddos had respective illnesses so I was totally glued to the house.  But I do try to make the best of it all and allow myself to get extra crafty when these things happen.  One of the crafty things I did was create for this week's great MFT sketch MFTWSC56!  Here is the sketch:

Ya, it's super cute, right??!?!  SO fun!!!  Here's my interpretation:
I've used designer papers from Pink Paislee from their Vintage Vogue line.  The cardbase is Bazzill cardstock.  I used SU and PTI inks for my sentiment which is from MFT's Clearly Sentimental About Family set.  I used the beautiful Fleur De Lis stamps from MFT's Who's That Parisian Girl to embellish the Fishtail Banner pennant that I created using this technique.  

For my embellishments, I added lots of stitching, some gorgeous vintage inspired buttons from Pink Paislee, purple baker's twine, some floral stick pins and a small, resin flower from Michael's. 

One of my goals is to try to enter more challenges.  So I am also entering this into the following challenges:

My Crafty Spot - Anything Goes
Heart Song Inspirations - Buttons or Brads
Art With No Boundaries - All You Need Is Love
Victorine Stamps - Anything Goes
Hooked On Craft Challenges - Something Bright
Crafty Cardmakers - Beads

Thanks SO much for popping by!!

Crafty Hugs!
