My Favorite Things Stamps...WSC # 166 & Color Throwdown # 282...Hello!

Hello stampin' friends! I'm SO ready for Spring but woke up to a light dusting of snow this morning so I don't think it will be Spring around here anytime soon. I made some time to get sketchy with the MFT Wednesday Stamp Club Challenge # 166. I went looking for colour inspiration to go with the great MFTWSC166 sketch and found this beautiful spring colour combo over at the Color Throwdown # 282...just making it in under the deadline.

Here is the great sketch that I used!

I LOVE how this colour combo turned out...I used MFT Replenishments Heavyweight Card Stock
Sweet Tooth, Lemon Drop, Wild Cherry and Sour Apple

For my card I started by stamping the Woodgrain Background Stamp on Sweet Tooth Heavyweight Card Stock with Natural Premium Dye Ink and then stamped Wild Cherry Heavyweight Card Stock with the flower background stamp from the LJD Spring Background Stamp set with Sweet Tooth Pigment Ink and embossed it with Zing White Embossing powder. I used the Circle STAX and Pierced Circle STAX to cut the Lemon Drop and Wild Cherry Heavyweight Card Stock. I made a few flowers using the little Posies Die-nmaics in Blueprints 12 and the Pretty Posies Die-namics. I added Lemon Drop Buttons tied with Hemp Cord to the centers of the posies.

I coloured up this sweet Pure Innocence Wish You Were Here girl with my Copics, cut her out and popped her up on the banner.  I cut a fishtail flag with the Fishtail Layers STAX from Lemon Drop Heavyweight Card Stock and stamped the sentiment from the Pure Innocence It's A Sign Stamp set with MFT Sweet Tooth Pigment Ink and embossed it with Zing White Embossing Powder.

I finished the inside...I used several elements from Blueprints 12 here and I stamped and embossed a sentiment from the Pure Innocence Wish You Were Here Stamp set.

Thanks SO much for stopping by and havin' a wee peek at my card for the MFTWSC166 and CTD282!
