hello...

Hey friends!!!   Popping in with a card to share for a few challenges:  Freshly Made Sketches, My Favorite Things color challenge and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge.  Love the colors in the current MFT color challenge so I really wanted to make something for the challenge.  I found some patterned papers that matched two of the colors (the steel grey and lime) and die cut them using my PTI notebook die.  The stamps and dies used are MFT's Peaceful Wildflowers.  I die cut three of the long stemmed image and then stamped it with a green that corresponded with the MFT green.   Brought in the raspberry color with a strip of patterned paper.  After layering everything up and adding the small bow I realized that you could barely see the lime green color so I added the lime green sequins to the card.  The "hello" (also an MFT die) was die cut from white cardstock and from fun foam to give the die cut more depth and then adhered to the card front.  I think it is a bit crooked, but you know what... I think it is okay, lol!



Thanks for stopping by today...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  Recollections white; Patterned paper:  Stampin Up!, Teresa Collins, American Crafts, Sequins:  Ellen Hutson, Stamps:  My Favorite Things;  Dies:  PTI and MFT, PTI black button twine
