you're the friend...

Hey!!  Been getting more crafty time lately and so I'm taking advantage of it to participate in some more challenges.  Today's card is for the current MFT Wednesday sketch challenge, the Essentials by Ellen Mix It Up challenge (mixing Essentials by Ellen products with MFT!) and the current ColourQ challenge.  The horizontal stripes in the sketch made me think of the MFT Stitched Fishtail Flag Stax dies and so I used the smallest die to cut my banners.  Since they were too long for the card base I experimented with cutting them down and not messing up the stitching.  Once I got my experiment banner cut to the right length I finished up the rest of them.  The Essentials by Ellen portion of the Mix It Up challenge comes in the form of the EE Bold Blooms stamps and dies.  The flower was die cut and stamped with corresponding image using Melon Mambo ink.  The leaves were die cut and then stamped using the Pool Party ink.  After figuring out the arrangement for the banners I stamped one with the sentiment from the MFT set Delicate Pretty Poppies and then adhered them down.  The flower and leaves were layered on and then a few Pretty Pink Posh sparkly clear sequins were added.   Going to add this to the current Word Art Wednesday challenge of anything goes.




Thanks for stopping by today...
