MFTGUESTDT1112 Let's Celebrate!

Every month My Favorite Things has a Guest Design Team challenge that offers great prizes - check their blog here for details on the November challenge and head over to Splitcoast Stampers to join in the fun. This month the sketch really fits their new Peek-a-Boo Squared die, which I don't have.

As often happens when I see a sketch, the wheels start turning and before long I became obsessed with an idea. A little measuring and a couple of Nestabilities circle dies helped me configure a rough facsimile of the four circle die and I created this.

I stamped four different a la Modes on a square of white cardstock: The Rainbow Will Come, Birthday Girl, Miss You a Latte and Cheers. They are colored with Copics and paper pieced with papers from Teresa Collins Vintage Finds 6x6 pad.  Only The Rainbow Will Come required a bit of masking as I didn't want her holding an umbrella. 

At first, I just planned to pop the champagne glass out of a circle, but needed to hide the missing hand on the Rainbow girl. Once I placed the metal present out of the circle, I fussy cut the coffee cups as well. 

All the girls have a touch of glitter from a Spica gold glitter pen that I also used to color the ribbon & bow on the present.

A clear Spica glitter pen gives a bit of glow to the candle.

The sentiment is from the ALM Cheers set and stamped on a double cut flag from the Fishtail Flag Stax dies. A little piece of rickrack from my stash runs along the bottom of the main panel.
