Go Coconuts {MFTWSC75}!

Hi everyone!  Happy Wednesday!!

It's week 75 of our WSC Getting Sketchy (June 6 -June 12). We have another fabulous sketch for you this week!   Meet MFTWSC75!

I had alot of fun with this sketch!!  I still had this sweet new Pure Innocence Hula Girl out on my stamp desk from MFTeasers and I paired her with some papers from Paradise Beach by Echo Park Papers.  I started by stamping her on X Press It Blending Card, colored her with Copic Markers and then fussy cut her out.  She is popped up on layered circle panels cut with the Circle STAX 1 Die-Namics and Circle STAX 2 Die-Namics, and the main layer was cut from a piece of patterned paper.

I added a flower cut with the new Hibiscus Die-Namics, which I adore!  I cut the flower from patterned paper and the leaves from Sour Apple Cardstock.  I LOVE this new flower Die-Namics.  I added a trio of rhinestones in the center.

I also added a rhinestone in the center of the flower in her hair.  Here is a closeup of this cutie pie.

The sentiment, "Go Coconuts", (lol), was stamped onto a panel cut with the Bracket Tab Die-Namics and tucked under the square panel.  I added lots of stitching too, along with some twine.

On the inside, I stamped her again in silhouette onto the Kraft panel and added another sentiment, "Let's Get Lost".  I also added more stitching.

Here are the Copic Markers I've used on my card:

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