For my card today I took the opportunity to make a special card for my friend's, daughter, Olivia, for her 7th birthday. I also thought it would be a good opportunity to use the MFTWSC80 sketch that I missed out on and used it as a jumping off point. I ended up making a few changes and moving the sentiment but for the most part I think you can still see the sketch in there.

I inked up the super cute PI Being Cute is What I Do and used these gorgeous MME, The Sweetest Things - Honey 6x6 paper pad. I coloured the PI girl with my Copics and paper pieced her outfit. I coloured in some grass with my Prismacolor Pencils and cut the image out with my Rectangle STAX Die-namics and inked with Spun Sugar and Antique Linen Distress ink. I used my Small Simply Scallop Border Die-namics and layered it with a Simply Scallop Border too. I also cut pretty rolled roses from English Rose MFT Felt and leaves from Whisper Grey Felt. I stamped a sentiment from the PI Honey Bee stamp set on white card, cut it out with one of the Mini Tab dies from the, Mini Tab Foursome Die-namics.

 Here is the inside of my card. I stamped the PI Being Cute girl again and made a sentiment panel with the Polka Dot Greetings label and the ribbon die from the First Place Award Ribbon Die-namics and added a few more Fishtail Flags. I stamped a sentiment from the PI Being Cute stamp set and the Happy Birthday and XOXO are from the PI All Occasions Sentiment set.

Well, thanks SO much for stopping by and having a wee peek at the card that I made for the MFT celebration of World Cardmaking Day! I hope you can get some stamping or cardmaking time today and please join us over at the SCS forum too where the MFT Designers will be popping by to chat!

Happy World Cardmaking Day!!!
