Birthday Wishes - My Favorite Things Sketch Challenge

Happy Memorial Day!   Hope you are enjoying your holiday.   I have been extremely busy with work and home.  Graduation day is tomorrow and we have been celebrating with family and friends.     I created two cards today and used the My Favorite Things Sketch, MFTWSC229 for the starting point.

I channeled Keisha Campbell from the MFT Design team and this card for inspiration.   She does a wonderful job with all her projects, love her use of neutrals with pops of color.    

I started by picking my colors of Tangy Orange, Orange Fizz,  Sour Apple and Steel Grey for my card on a Smooth White card stock base.  

Stamps: MFT Simply Circle Backgrounds
Inks: ME Moonlight pigment ink
Papers: MFT Smooth White, Steel Grey, Tangy Orange, Sour Apple, Orange Fizz
Tools: MFT Blueprints 13 & 14, Tag Talk, Hemp twine, Pretty Pink Posh Clear 4 mm and 6 mm sequins, Stitched Vertical Rectangles

The sketch called for a set of three but I used one for the sentiment.   I had cut out three flowers, so with the extra I created a bonus card!    

Using the same sketch I used the one flower and sentiment.   

Stamps:  MFT Striped Background, LJD Cheerful Blessings
Inks: Versamark, SSS Fog
Papers: MFT Smooth White, Steel Grey, Tangy Orange, Orange Fizz, Sour Apple
Tools: Blueprints 13 & 14, Stitched Vertical Rectangles, Hero Arts White Embossing Powder, PPP Orange Sequins

Happy Memorial Day!
