MFT Wednesday Stamp Club

Hello and happy Wednesday!  My Favorite Things has another fabulous sketch for you this week and I had so much fun with it and got to play with a new (new for me...) set and Die-namics, woot!

First, here is the sketch - MFTWSC45
I bought this fun Contempo Cage set and have been itching to use it and so I switched out the tag for the bird cage.

I ran the Contempo Cage Die-namics through my Big Shot with Hershey cardstock and then glued the die cut to a sheet of Odds & Ends paper by Cosmo Cricket and then trimmed the edges.  I grabbed some yellow felt and cut out some Mini Rolled Roses and added the sentiment flag underneath.  The scallops are the made with the Double Scallop Border Die-namics and I added a little zig-zag stitching across the top of the border. 

We encourage you all to play along, and to enter your card in the weekly draw for a $15 gift voucher to the MFT Boutique. Simply follow the sketch and create a card or other paper creation. You may use any stamps and supplies that you wish. Each week, a keyword is assigned to the sketch. All you need to do to enter, is upload your card to the gallery at SCS, and enter MFTWSC45 in the keyword box, during the upload process. After November 15th, we randomly choose a winner from that week's entries and the winner will receive a $15 gift voucher. If the winning card uses MFT stamps, the participant will earn a $5 bonus, for a total of a $20 gift voucher! That is up to $100 per month in prizes, JUST for playing along. We hope you'll join us in 2011.
