You Make Life Sweet!

Hi everyone!  Happy Wednesday!!

Are you LOVING the new release from My Favorite Things?  I know I TOTALLY am, and I'm excited that it's time for another MFT Sketch Challenge, MFTWSC18, so I can ink up another new set!

I hadn't had an opportunity to use this DARLING new Pure Innocence Pucker Up, and I thought she was just PERFECT with this week's sketch!

I stamped her onto X Press It Blending Card and colored her with Copic Markers.  I then cut out and embossed the panel with Circle Nestabilities and layered it onto cardstock cut with the Die-Namics Open Scallop Doily Die.  You can barely see it, but the vertical panel behind the focal panel has "Pucker Up" stamped repeatedly across the panel.  I added a border with my beloved Die-Namics Little Open Scallop Strip Die

I'm sure it won't come as a surprise that I've, once again, created a floral embellishment with the Die-Namics Pretty Posies Die.  I am seriously obsessed with this die!  I added a button cut with the Die-Namics Button Quartet Die and a bow of Baker's Twine completes it. 

All of the patterned paper is Lime Twist Life of The Party from My Minds Eye (LOVE) and I used the woodgrain pattern to paper piece her lemonade stand.  I sewed all the layers on my sewing machine and added a white Candy Dot to each corner.

For the inside, I stamped this cutie again, this time in Cameo Coral, and added the sentiment, "You Make Life Sweet".  Another border from the Die-Namics Little Open Scallop Strip Die and some more machine stitching finish this one off.

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