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



I started by stamping her in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and then colored her with Copic Markers.  I paper pieced the balloons with some Life of the Party 6x6 paper from My Mind's Eye and then used a corner rounder to round out the opposite corners of the image panel.  I also added some brand spankin' new Steel Grey Grosgrain Ribbon, Steel Grey Button, and matted the base on Steel Grey Card Stock.  So super yummy - you will LOVE this grey.  It's beautiful!  I stamped the sentiment on a Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics and the layout is the September SFYTT.


On the inside, I used the new Jumbo Fishtail Banner STAX Die-namics and then stamped another sentiment.

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

I used these fun new Die-namics today:
