My version of MFT Sketch Challenge 289

It’s a blowy day outside, and cool – the perfect kind of day to snuggle in and craft but not so good for taking pics of my cards out of doors for they tend to want to do the paper airplane thing.  Do YOU prefer to use natural light to take your photos or do you use a lightbox or window?  I’d love to know.

MFT Wednesday 289 Barb Derksen

My card is based on this sketch from My Favorite Things Challenge #289

Love the clean-ness (you know when you spell a word one way and it just doesn’t look right?  I tend to make up my own spellings then) of this layout – great sketch MFT!


I let the paper do all the work on this one! 

I used two different neutral shades of textured cardstock from American Traditional designs and ran it through a We R Memory Keepers embossing folder for the wonderful crinkle effect.  Don’t you just  ♥ the height and texture this embossing folder creates? 

I sliced and diced and layered up and fixed it all to the cardbase.  I added some punched stars, placing teeny tiny gems in the centers.  The final touch is this sentiment from MFT – I tend to use this stamp set over and over and OVER!  (to the neglect of many other sets I’m afraid!)

I hope you’re creating up a storm today too – thanks for taking time to stop in.
