Keep Your Goals In Mind {MFTWSC69}!

Hi everyone!  Happy Wednesday!  It's week 69 of our WSC Getting Sketchy (April 25 - May 1). We have another fabulous sketch for you this week!  Meet MFTWSC69!

I had ALOT of fun with this week's sketch, and I think I'll be using this one again!  I created a card and tag set for my oldest, Meredith, who is playing soccer!

I've used Pure Innocence I Get A Kick Out Of You on both of these and they are colored with Copic Markers after stamping them on X Press It Blending Card.  The patterned paper on both is Loyal by Authentique and I used Kraft Cardstock and Sweet Tooth Cardstock for the card base and layers.  Have I mentioned how much I ADORE MFT Cardstock?

I just LOVE her sweet expression and rosy cheeks.  My Meredith always rocks pigtails too, so I think my little soccer star is going to love this.   After popping her up with Jody Boosters onto the rectangle panel I drew in some grass with Prismacolor pencils.  The sentiment, "Keep Your Goals In Mind" was stamped onto a panel cut and then layered with the Circle STAX 1 Die-Namics and Circle STAX 2 Die-Namics.

I used the Banner Day Alphabet to stamp Meredith's number onto her jersey.  Too fun no?  I also used the fabulous Chevron Stripes Die-Namics to add a bit more of a design element to my card.

On the inside I've added more patterned paper and more chevrons, along with another sentiment, "I Get A Kick Out Of You"....and I sure do!

While I was at it, I decided to make her a tag to hang on her soccer bag.  I used the Tag You're It Die-Namics for the tag base, and then cut circles from patterned paper and cardstock with the Circle STAX 1 Die-Namics and Circle STAX 2 Die-Namics.  

I cut out a panel with the First Place Award Ribbon Die-Namics for her name, and stamped it with the Mini Banner Day Alphabet.  Once I had her name stamped, I shortened the panel so that her name was centered.  I tied the tag with a bit of Flax Twine.

Here are the Copic Markers I've used on this set:

And here are the Die-Namics I've used:
