Welcome to day FIVE of MFT Teasers!  Today, I'm showing a little sneak of à la modes Polished to Perfection.



I stamped her in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then colored her with Copic markers and popped her up over a Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics die.  I stamped the sentiment on Pink Lemonade Cardstock after cutting the paper out with the File Tab Die-namics die.   I added the Retro Squares Die-namics in white cardstock and then added some pink pearls to the Triple Scallop Borders Die-namics.  A couple Sweet Tooth Buttons and thread finish the front.  The layout is Jen Shults' DS59.


I added another Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics on the inside of the card and sewed some zigzag stitching around the sentiment. 

Don't forget to stop on over to the MFT Blog for a complete list of the designers playing along in today's Teaser.

Here are the brand new Die-namics I used today:

Hi Karen! I love the white buttons (would not have believed I would!), I love the soft pastels in yours - this ala mode can be very different with different color palettes -- probably a "duh" for you arty types, but for me -- a veritable lightbulb moment -- and I have an ala mode for that! Hee her.
