Be Merry {MFTWSC43}!

Hi everyone!  Happy Wednesday!

It's week 43 of our WSC Getting Sketchy and we have another fabulous sketch for you this week!  Meet MFTWSC43!

My stash of Christmas cards is seriously lacking, so I pulled out the ever so darling á la modes in Candy Cane Kisses from My Favorite Things for my card today!

I stamped her, colored her with Copic Markers and then "fussy cut" her out.  All of the patterned paper is Holly Jolly from My Minds Eye.

The sentiment, "Be Merry" was stamped onto a panel cut with the smallest banner in the First Place Award Ribbon Die-Namics Die, and I tucked it under a bow that I created with The Bow Easy. 

The First Place Award Ribbon Die-Namics is just one of the Die-Namics that will be available for purchase without the coordinating stamp set beginning on November 1 at 10 PM EST.  SO exciting!

I added a button cut with the Button Quartet Die-namics, threaded with a bit of twine, on top of the bow.  I also added two red brads towards the bottom, and lots of stitching.

The inside features some more patterned paper, and I stamped this cutie again, this time in Real Red ink, and added another sentiment, "Sending Candy Cane Kisses".  Super cute no?

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