You Did It!

Hi everyone!! Happy Wednesday!!

Another Wednesday means another MFT Sketch! This week we are up to MFTWSC16! Sheesh...the weeks are certainly flying by aren't they?

Before long, my Meredith will be graduating from Nursery School (and yes...I fully intend to cry), and I thought that this week's sketch was a perfect opportunity to ink up the sweet Pure Innocence Graduate from My Favorite Things (currently being restocked) and make my cutie a card for this momentous occasion!

I stamped her onto X Press It Blending Card and colored her with Copic Markers.  I then cut her out and popped her up in a circle cut from red cardstock to which I added some red stars cut with the Die-Namics Stacking Stars Die.  I used the Die-Namics Notebook Edge Die to give a bit of interest to the center panel.  Love that die (well, let's be honest...I love them all!).

I kept the embellies simple since I used lots of patterns.  I added some Baker's Twine and a red bow created with The Bow Easy!!  All of the patterned paper is Report Card from October Afternoon.

For the inside, I added another sentiment from this sweet set, "I'm extremely proud of you" and I underlined the word extremely with a Red Spica Glitter Pen to accentuate the sentiment.  Another scalloped border with the Die-Namics Simply Scallops Die, some more stars from the Die-Namics Stacking Stars Die, and a bit more Baker's Twine to tie (get it?) it all together!

Here are the Die-Namics I've used on my card today:
