Happy Birthday {MFTWSC110}!

Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday!

It's time for another MFT Sketch!  This week, we are up to MFTWSC110!  WOW...110 sketches already?  That went fast!!

I super love this week's sketch, and I actually rotated it in order to use this darling image, Pure Innocence You Color My World.  I was asked my a friend to make a birthday card for her to give someone, and I thought this sketch would work perfectly!

I stamped her onto X Press It Blending Card and colored her with lots and lots of Copic Markers.  I cut out the panel, and layered it, with the Oval STAX 1 Die-Namics and Oval STAX 2 Die-Namics.  All of the patterned papers are the delish new Notable papers from My Minds Eye.  Love.

Here is a closeup of this little painter.  Isn't she a cutie?

I used the Fishtail Flags STAX Die-Namics for the center, vertical panel of the sketch. and the flower was cut with my favorite flower die...the Pretty Posies Die-Namics, which I topped off with a Tangy Orange Button and Hemp Cord (of course!).  I stamped the birthday girl's name onto a Whip Cream panel cut with the Accent It Labels and Tabs Die-Namics using the Typewriter Alphabet.  I tucked it under the flower so that the other end of the panel peeks out.

On the inside, I added more patterned paper, a border cut with the Little Open Scallop Strip Die-Namics, and a sentiment from Pure Innocence All Occasion Sentiments, "Happy Birthday".

Here are the Copic Markers I've used on my card (which is a surprisingly large amount considering I just colored her!)

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