MFT Creative Challenge - Background Building!

Hi everyone! Happy Tuesday!

It's time for another MFT Design Team Creative Challenge!  The MFT Design Team Creative Challenge is a monthly feature, where we are challenged to explore our creative side using a specific theme, product or technique. 

This month, we were challenged to do some background building using our MFT Stamps and Die-Namics.  Be sure to check out the MFT Blog for a list of all participating designers who have a project to share with you today.

I had alot of fun creating my card today!  I started with a Kraft card base and using white ink, I stamped a pattern using the Distressed Diamonds set.  I then took a piece of Sweet Tooth Cardstock and stamped it using Darling Dots and the new (and delish) Lemon Drop Yellow MFT Ink.  I cut out that panel, and then layered it, using the Rectangle STAX 1 Die-Namics and Rectangle STAX 2 Die-Namics.

Using Razzle Berry Felt (YUM) I cut out flowers using the Plentiful Petals Die-Namics.  I added a Kraft Button on top tied with Hemp Cord.  I cut out leaves using the Flower Trio and Leaf Trio Duo Die-Namics out of Sour Apple Felt (YUM).  The sentiment, "Have The Happiest of Days", from the fabulous Happy Thoughts set, was stamped onto a panel cut with the First Place Award Ribbon Die-Namics

On the inside I added more dots from the Darling Dots set stamped with Lemon Drop Yelllow MFT Ink, and then added another sentiment, "Happiness Always", also from Happy Thoughts.

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