Sweet Greetings!

Hi everyone!  Happy Wednesday!!

It's week 29 of our WSC Getting Sketchy and we have another fabulous sketch for you this week!  Here is the sketch {MFTWSC29}: 

For this week's sketch, I inked up the ADORABLE Pure Innocence Sweet Greetings, which was just recently released from My Favorite Things!  I stamped her in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Buttercream Cardstock and colored her with Copic Markers.  I cut out and embossed the panel with Rectangle Nestabilities and sponged the edges a bit with some Memento Cantaloupe ink.

The sentiment, "Sweet Greetings", was cut with one of the banner dies from the First Place Award Ribbon Die-Namics, and the flower and leaves were cut with the Upsy Daisy Flower Builder Die-Namics out of Banana Split Cardstock and Sour Apple Cardstock respectively.  I added a little heart cut with the Notched Tag Die-Namics out of Cotton Candy Cardstock (how appropriate!).  The background is Berrylicious Cardstock and I embossed it with the Seeing Spots Embossing Folder.  I added a border of Fossil Cardstock using the Little Open Scallop Strip Die-Namics.

The patterned paper is Country Drive from Echo Park Papers, and I have to say...the MFT cardstock is SUCH a perfect match!  In fact, I find that the MFT cardstock colors match patterned papers better than any other brand (and believe me...I have them all!).   My personal favorite is Sno Cone Cardstock...it matches SO many papers I love!

For the inside I added a panel with another sentiment from Pure Innocence Sweet Greetings, "You are one of the sweetest things in my life", and added some more patterned paper and another border of Fossil Cardstock cut with the Little Open Scallop Strip Die-Namics.

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