Pretty Princess - MFTWSC56

This is my card for the My Favorite Things weekly sketch challenge on Splitcoast Stampers.

I have really been busy this week with several sketch challenges and have had a lot of fun with them.
For my card I used MFT Pure Innocence Being Cute Is What I Do image. I paper pieced her outfit, colored her with Copics and then cut her out and mounted her on foam adhesive onto a MFT Decorative Doily diecut.  The sentiment is from another MFT stamp set.  The papers are SU Whisper White & Baja Breeze CS and Twitterpated DSP.

Birthday Wishes for you

This is my card for week 4 on Verve's forum at Splitcoast Stampers (click on the sketch for the link). I managed to get all 4 sketches done this month. Woo hoo.
For my card I used some new DSP from Stampin Up's Sale-A-Bration - Everyday Enchantment, Very Vanilla and Poppy Parade CS and Ink. My rosette was made with Tim Holtz die and Poppy Parade DSP.  I used a SU border punch, and button and string from my stash. The sentiment is from Verve's Making a Statement set.

MOJO Monday 222

I created this card for the MOJO Monday 222 sketch challenge. It will be for my hubby for Valentine's Day. These papers from MME are perfect with this sentiment. I inked the edges of the hearts so they would stand out and mounted them on dimensionals.  The hearts are cut from SU Riding Hood Red.  I love this sketch layout  and will be using it again.
Supplies used:
Paper:  MME Honey Cake; SU Basic Black & Riding Hood Red; Neenah Classic Crest Brilliant White
Stamps:  Verve "A Hundred Hearts"
Dies:  Verve "From The Heart" and Nesties circles
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black
Recollection Brads
