My Favorite Things...WSC Challenge...Make a Wish!


Hello crafty friends! I am back with another card to share that I made this evening to enter the MFT Wednesday Stamp Club challenge and I'm just getting it in under the wire. You also get a bit of a reprieve from Christmas cards, lol, as I needed to make a b-day card for a friend. I thought it was the perfect time to ink up one of my A La Mode stamps from MFT for the first time....and....I'm totally hooked on these sweeties!!!
So, the challenge this week is to be inspired by the song My Favorite Things from the movie The Sound of Music. Well, I was inspired by the line "....crisp apple strudels" now, I know this isn't exactly an apple strudel but it's a close as I am going to get to the yummy pastry, me thinks, smile!

So, I inked up, A La Mode Time to Celebrate with her rather large and delish looking cake, I added the candles that comes in the set and coloured her with my Copics. I cut the image out with my new Nesties and left the image in the die and inked with Pumice Stone Distress ink. I also made a thin mat by cutting around the outer edge of the die with my Fiskers Finger Grip craft knife. I need a new blade so don't look too closely,smile!  I made an easel card 5 3/8X6 and used BG Green at Heart and some AC cardstock and ribbon! I decided to cut these MFT Die-namics flowers and these Die-namics Flowers from My Favorite Felt in brown and cream from the Banana Split collection. I added BG Green at heart brads to the centres and added ribbon leaves. I also cut the Die-namics scalloped scallop border from the cream coloured My Favourite felt.  The sentiment Make a wish is from the WTG Birthday set and the bottom sentiment is from the Time to Celebrate set and stamped on the MFT Die-namics Framed Greetings Die and stamp set. To finish the card off I added a little Stickles to the candles and icing.

I had fun making this card tonight and it was nice to take a break from the Christmas cards.

Thanks so much for stopping by and having a wee peek at my card!

Those felt flowers are a wonder & I love the spotted ribbon. It's so good to see these different stamp companies too - such a change from the normal images.
