I {Heart} U {MFTWSC55}!

Hi everyone!  Happy Wednesday!

It's week 55 of our WSC Getting Sketchy. We have another fabulous sketch for you this week!  Meet MFTWSC55!

I always have fun with the MFT Wednesday Sketch, but I really had a blast making this week's card!   All of the patterned paper is Love Me from My Minds Eye, and the Kraft panel in the background was embossed with the Square Lattice Embossing Folder.

For the focal panel, I started with a piece of patterned paper and stamped "i" and "u" with the new Monogram Alphabet from My Favorite Things in Regal Rose Ink.  I then cut the heart from My Favorite Felt in Cherry On Top using the Hearts A Plenty Die-Namics, and adorned it with a button cut from Kraft cardstock using the Button Quartet Die-Namics.  I tied it with a bit of Blossom Twine and added a border underneath the panel with the Crown Border Die-Namics.  I also added LOTS of stiching.

On the inside I added some more patterned paper, another border cut with the Crown Border Die-Namics, and a sentiment from the essential Happy Thoughts set..."You Make Me Happy".

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