Spread Your Wings and Fly!


Hi everyone!  Happy Wednesday!!

It's week 36 of our WSC Getting Sketchy. We have another fabulous sketch for you this week!  Meet MFTWSC36!


SUCH a fun sketch no?  I love any sketch that has an oval or circle focal panel.  While there are SO many amazing new stamp sets just released last night from MFT, I chose to use Pure Innocence Book In Hand for my card today.  I also made a backpack tag using her as well, as my little Meredith has started Kindergarten...um...how is that even possible?  It feels like I just had her!

For my card and tag, I started by stamping this cutie from Pure Innocence Book In Hand in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Buttercream Cardstock and colored her with Copic Markers.  I paper pieced her sweater with the same papers I used on my card, A Happy Heart from My Minds Eye.  On the card, I cut her out with Petite Oval Nestabilities and added a layered flower embellishments created with the Pretty Posies Die-Namics, topped off with a button from My Minds Eye and some Cappucino Baker's Twine.  The border was cut from Hot Fudge Cardstock using the Notebook Edge Die-Namics.  I finished off the card with silver brads.


For the inside, I added some more patterned paper, and stamped her again, this time in Purely Pomegranate, and added a sentiment from Pure Innocence You Give Me Wings, "Spread Your Wings & Fly", which is just how I feel about my little MJ now (Lord, imagine how I am going to feel when she goes away to College???).


For her tag, I started with a name tag holder that I had on hand from when I attended CHA in 2010.  After coloring her, I cut her out and popped her up using Jody Boosters.  Using the Mini Banner Day Alphabet, I spelled her name out and stamped it onto one of the banners from the First Place Award Ribbon Die-Namics.  Two borders of Hot Fudge Cardstock with the Notebook Edge Die-Namics, and some silver brads, finish this off.  I have to tell you, it looks ADORABLE on her backpack!


Here are the Die-Namics I've used on my card and tag today!



Here is a picture of my love yesterday at her first day of Kindergarten.  Love.This.Kid.
