MFTWSC68: Happy Bird-day!

I’ve been on a crafty kick this weekend and made another card featuring a Pure Innocence image from My Favorite Things.  This time I used You’re So Tweet and paired it with some delicious Be Happy designer paper from My Mind’s Eye.


I’ve been on a sketch challenge kick so I used this week’s My Favorite Things sketch: MFTWSC68.  Love this layout… although I did tweak it just a tiny bit.


As usual, I stamped the image in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Choice Snow White cardstock.  I stamped the image a second time on another piece of cardstock and yet a third time on a bit of designer paper so I could paper piece her dress.  I colored the rest of the image with Copic markers before cutting out and adhering over the first image using foam dimensionals.  I added sponging with Scattered Straw Distress ink to the main panel.  I layered each panel on Soft Sky cardstock and added stitching (after rounding a corner here and there).

Couple final notes on the main image – I used a Pink Spica pen on her barrette and the little heart.  I also added some freckles using a white gel pen.


For embellishment I used a couple of MFT dies.  The first is the Framed Greetings die which I used to add a sentiment tab.  I then used the Prima Donna Petals die set to create a flower from designer paper and Bubblegum felt.  For the flower center I used Sparklet Rhinestone.  Behind the flower I tied some Brown Sugar divine twine into a bow. To finish I added a few clear rhinestones here and there. :)
