Here is the awesome MFT sketch for this week:
And here is my interpretation of both!
But I digress! I used some random papers from my stash along with some MME Oh La la For Her 6x6 papers. I pulled out one of my newest and very favorite MFT stamp sets, Vertical Greetings. I first inked and stamped the words YOU and PLACE using a regular bright pink, water based Crayola marker (Copics don't work for this technique as they are alcohol based) and I don't have any other kinds of markers. I then cleaned my stamp and using a dew drop sized Momento ink pad (Tuxedo Black) coated the rest of the sentiment and stamped it.
MFT's Finishing Flourishes (a MUST have in my opinion!) for the flag element on the top right of the card. I needed a 'thank you' card for a dear friend of mine and this combination of sentiments is just perfect! To coordinate along with the Embellish Blog challenge, I pulled out my mini Tim Holtz Rosette die and using the different coordinating papers plus some corrugated cardboard I created my embellished elements.
I added stitching to each layer and two heart topped stick pins within the cluster of rosettes for some added visual interest.
I finished the interior very simply but with enough pizazz to be pretty!
