MFT Wednesday Stamp Club

Hello!  It's Wednesday and that means it's time for another fun sketch challenge from MFT!  Here's a look at the sketch:

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

I started with a 5"x5" Kraft card base and then added some So Happy Together 6x6 papers from Echo Park for the various layers from the sketch.  I used the Contempo Cage Die-namics to cut out the bird cage and then glued it to a sheet of white cardstock, which I had already stamped the bird and swing on earlier.  I trimmed off the excess white cardstock and then added the completed cage to the Rectangle STAX Set 1 Die-namics in polka dot papers.  I used some Cotton Candy Ribbon and Cotton Candy Buttons tied with Buttercream Twine for the last little details from the sketch.

On the inside, I repeated the image from the front of the card and had the bird singing a few notes and added the sentiment up top.  Super quick for the inside, but it really adds so much!

Don't forget to stop by the MFT Blog for more details on this week's Stamp Club challenge as well as a complete list of all the designers playing along today.
