Mr. Fix It {MFTWSC60}!

 Hi everyone!  Happy Wednesday!  It's week 60 of our WSC Getting Sketchy. We have another fabulous sketch for you this week!  Meet MFTWSC60!

For my card today, I've used the darling new Fix It Fred....the newest in the Fred Bear lineup at MFT!  He is colored with Copic Markers and I then cut him out and popped him up onto circles.  I stitched around the circle stitch by stitch like the wonderful Jody Morrow!  All of the patterned paper is Dilly Dally from My Minds Eye.  

The scallop border was cut with the Simply Scallops Medium Die-Namics and I layered another border cut with the Dainty Dots Die-Namics.  The sentiment, "Mr. Fix It" was stamped onto a panel cut with the Mini Tabs Foursome Die-Namics.  LOVE these.

I added some twill tape, twine and brads for more masculine embellishments.  Here is a closeup of my coloring on Fred...I used some different browns to better match the patterned papers.

I cut out tools using the Tool Charms Die-Namics and then attached them to a simple twine bow.  So fun!  I've also added lots of stitching as you can see in this closeup.

For the inside I added more patterned paper, lots of stitching and Fix It Fred stamped again, this time in Baja Breeze Ink.  I added another sentiment, "Thank You For Your Help" and some brads.

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