MFT GDT Challenge...What a Happy Day!

Hey friends! Just a really quick post tonight to share this card I whipped up at the 11th hour for the MFT GDT challenge at Splitcoast Stampers and I 'm not sure I even made it in time or that I really even have a chance but it was fun to play along anyways! I thought the theme "some like it hot" sounded like a lot of fun too and it would be a good opportunity to use some of my MFT "hot" new goodies.

I am loving the "hot" weather we are having right now and I have decided to put in a bit of a garden even though I don't have a green thumb...but this is going to mean that I have to remember to water the green stuff that we've planted, he, he, he! So I thought I would use this little PI Girl watering her garden. Doesn't she look like she is whistling in the garden...too cute. I paper pieced her dress with a portion of the cloud paper from the pad and coloured her in with my Copics. I added Glaze pen to her red patten shoes and the water in the can and sprinkling out of the can. I also added two little red pearls to her shoes.

I decided to finally cut up some of this gorgeous and whimsical DCWV paper pad called Songbird and I love "hot" red...it's my fave colour...this pp was perfect!!! I cut the grass with the new Die-namics grass die and I really like that you basically get two cuts as you can use the negative as well...that's what I have done here. I just love my new large scalloped edge Die-namics die from MFT. The sentiment is from the MFT What a Day sentiment set and the beautiful twill tape is MFT too.
Here is the inside!
Thanks for stopping by and having a wee peek!
