My Favorite Things Stamps...WSC # 165 & CQC # 230...Celebrate Your Special Day!

Hello stampin' friends! I had some time today to get sketchy with the great sketch that they have over at My Favorite Things - Wednesday Stamp Club - MFTWSC165. Then I went looking for a colour scheme to go with the sketch and found this great combo QCQ # 230 over at the Colour Q Challenge!

This is the great sketch that I used for my card!

Here is the colour cue...I used MFT Replenishment Heavyweight Card Stock.

I made my card from MFT Replenishments Heavyweight Card Stock in Sweet Tooth, Black Licorice, Fuse Green, Kraft and Blu Raspberry. I've rediscovered how fabulous my MFT Stencils are and I have been having fun trying different techniques with them, inspired by this month's MFT DT Creative Challenge! This time I wanted to try and create a Bokeh background so I used the MPD Graduated Dots Stencil and positioned it on an angle and sponged with Blu Raspberrry Premium Dye Ink with a sponge dauber.  I also added some splatters with Jingle Bells Glimmer Mist and a sprinkling of Black Gumdrops.

I used the Pierced Circle STAX to cut the Blu Raspberry Heavyweight Card Stock and I stamped with the Sheet Music Background Stamp in Blu Raspberry Premium Dye Ink. I stamped a sentiment from the LJD Birthday Greetings Stamp set in Black Licorice Premium Dye Ink on Kraft Heavyweight Card Stock cut with the Fishtail Flags and Fishtail Layers STAX.  I added a pretty sunflower cut from Fuse Green Heavyweight Card Stock with the Sunflower Die-namics and added a Fuse Green Button tied with Hemp Cord.

I fished the inside...I stamped another sentiment from the LJD Birthday Greetings Stamp set with Black Licorice Premium Dye Ink on a tag cut with the tag die from Blueprints 2. I made the sentiment panel with the Pierced Circle STAX and the Layered Labels Die-namics.

Thanks SO much for stopping by and havin' a little look at my card for this week's MFT - Wednesday Stamp Club # 165 and the Colour Q Challenge # 230!
