So Many Dreams {MFTWSC92}!


Hi everyone!  Happy Wednesday!!

Wednesdays around here mean a new MFT Sketch!  YAY!  Meet MFTWSC92!  You know I LOVE a sketch with a circle! 


Today, I made a card for my cousin.  She had a BEAUTIFUL little baby girl super super early, and it has been such a long road.  Thank God her little one is doing wonderfully, and I wanted to create a card for her.  I am sure there is a long road ahead, so any prayers for them are welcome!

I LOVE all of the stamp sets in the Clearly Sentimental line at My Favorite Things, and Clearly Sentimental About Babies is one of my favorites.

The quote I've used today is my most favorite stamp in the entire set.  It is just so true...this quote really resonates with me.  I stamped the quote in Black Tea Fresh Ink onto a piece of patterned paper, which are all from The Sweetest Thing from My Minds Eye, and then cut out and layered the panel with the Circle STAX 1 Die-Namics and Circle STAX 2 Die-Namics.


Here is a closeup...I really LOVE this quote (did I mention that already?)


I used the Fishtail Flags STAX Die-Namics to create the horizontal panel, and I added three borders cut with the Dainty Dots Border Die-Namics cut from Whip Cream Cardstock for the three horizontal panels.

I added a flower cut with the Pretty Posies Die-Namics (these are one of my all time favorites!) and added a Tangy Orange Button in the center tied with some Hemp Cord.  All of the panels (except for the Whip Cream layers) were sponged lightly with Frayed Burlap Distress Ink.  I used Kraft for the card base and circle layer.



On the inside I added more patterned paper, another sentiment from this set, "so many dreams in such a little package", which is SO appropriate for this little girl, and another border cut with the Dainty Dots Border Die-Namics.


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





We'd love you to play along!  All of the deets about this challenge can be found HERE on our SCS Forum!
