Hello!!! Stopping in with a card that I made for several challenges: MFT Wednesday Sketch challenge, Color Throwdown and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge. I recently got some happy mail in the form of some new items from MFT and because I spent at least $60 I got this month's free die and it is absolutely gorgeous!! I used it on my card today. When I saw the new combo over at Color Throwdown I didn't think I would be able to play along because I was pretty certain I had nothing copper in my stash. I soon discovered that I was wrong when I found some beautiful copper cardstock that had come with my September My Monthly Hero kit. YAY!! I die cut the rose, bud and stem from the copper cardstock and then three times from white cardstock. I layered all the die cuts. Because the die cuts are so delicate I used spray adhesive and it worked like a charm. Once that was done I moved onto the rest of the card. My happy mail also contained the beautiful Geometric Greenery stamp set. I stamped two of the leaves from the set on watercolor cardstock with VersaMark, applied white embossing powder and then heat set. Once that was done I used MFT's Tropical Teal, SU!'s Pumpkin Pie and PTI's Terra Cotta Tile to watercolor all the leaves. I die cut a panel of woodgrain cardstock using the MFT Stitched Mini Scallop Rectangle Stax and then a panel of a neutral cardstock using an AJVD rectangle die. The sentiment (also from Geometric Greenery) was stamped on a banner that was die cut using an MFT Fishtail Flag Stax die that I also used to fishtail the other side of the die. When the watercolor piece had dried I trimmed it down and the layered up all the elements pursuant to the sketch. Initially I was concerned that this might look like a "hot mess", but I think it turned out rather nice. Looking at my photo it does appear that my orange is yellow, but it is orange!
