MFT Wednesday Stamp Club

***Please scroll down or CLICK HERE to see my TSG sneak peek*** 

Good morning!  It's time for another fabulous MFT sketch for your mid-week pick-me-up.  We have a super fun sketch for you this week!

I made a card using Contempo Cage and Die-namics.

Pin It

This card came together pretty quickly since I used lots of Die-namics to piece it together.  I started with Miss Caroline Howdy Doody 6x6 papers from My Mind's Eye (I told you I had lots and lots of new papers to use, teehee!) and cut out the bird and the Open Scallop Edge Die-namics with some of the sheets in the pack.

I used some Puff Cloud White and Blue Skies felt for the Mini Rolled Roses Die-namics and Rolled Mum Die-namics.  I added some black pears to the centers and the bird.

I stamped one of the birds from the Contempo Cage set in Tangerine Chalk Ink and then added the tweets in Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

I hope you will play along with us this week!  Please stop by Kim's blog for a list of all the designers participating in today's WSC challenge - you will definitely find yourself inspired!
