Look Who's Turning 7!

Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday

It's time for the new MFT Sketch Challenge!  This week, we are up to MFTWSC121!

I needed a birthday card for my niece who, you guessed it, just turned 7!  I reached for the super fun a la modes in Big Birthday Wishes, along with Big Birthday Numbers, to create my card.

I stamped her onto X Press It Blending Card and colored her with Copic Markers.  I added Crystal Stickles to the balloons.  I cut out the panel, and layered it, with the Rectangle STAX 1 Die-Namics and Rectangle STAX 2 Die-Namics.  The sentiment, "Look Who's Turning" is from Big Birthday Numbers and was stamped in Black Licorice Ink onto a Sweet Tooth panel cut with the Sentiment Strip Die-Namics.

The main panel and layer were cut with the Blueprints 1 Die-Namics and Blueprints 2 Die-Namics.  I also used the Blueprints 1 Die-Namics to cut the coral scallop panel.  All of the patterned papers are Trend Setter from Fancy Pants, and I added two enamel dots from My Minds Eye.

On the inside I cut the layers again with the Blueprints 1 Die-Namics and Blueprints 2 Die-Namics.  I ADORE how absolutely perfect they layer.  I added more patterned paper, and then, using both the Sweet Stack Label Die-Namics and Circle STAX 1 and Circle STAX 2 Die-Namics, I created the panel for my number 7, cut with the Bottom Line Numbers and Symbols.

Here is a closeup of the inside focal panel. 

Here are the MFT products I've used on my card:
