MFT January Guest Designer Challenge

I picked up the new Crate Paper Fourteen paper pad the other day and finally had time to play with it this morning.  You know that when I have designer paper on my desk, the first step is to check out My Favorite Things sketches!

This is the sketch for the January Guest Designer Challenge and my starting point for this card.

The sentiment from the Complimentary Greetings stamp set is inked with Color Box Chianti and stamped onto a panel die cut from the largest die in the Die-namics Well Worn Greetings set.

The edges of the sentiment panel are inked with Worn Lipstick Distress ink and popped up on a rectangle cut from the same patterned paper. I didn't want to introduce another pattern and liked the idea of lining up the chevron. A few pearls add interest to the tips of the chevrons.

The large heart is a Fiskars punch and the smaller hearts are cut using a die from Die-namics LLD Accent  It - Calendar Components.

I love the Die-namics Dainty Bows and cut the little one in Bubblegum felt, with a button and bakers twine finishing it off.

I don't make too many cards these days without pulling out my Die-namics Fishtail Flag Stax - one of my all-time favorite dies!

To join in the fun over at the MFT Forum at Splitcoast Stampers, create a card based on the sketch and enter for a chance to win a fabulous prize!

I am also linking this card to Simon Says Stamp where the challenge this week is Anything Goes.

Thanks for stopping by,
