PPC #225 Sketch Challenge MFT Fancy Flowers

Hello!  I hope your first Wednesday of 2017 is going great!  Today I'm over with the Paper Craft Crew  Design Team with my take on a fun sketch.  I just love all of the PCC Sketches!  

Since I recently received the Fancy Flowers Card Kit from My Favorite Things, I decided to use it.  Honestly I've had it a few days but I've been too busy to play with it.  It was definitely time!

So if you've never received a kit from MFT I have to tell you they are awesome.  It included the Fancy Flowers Stamp Set, Fancy Flowers Dies and Words for Friends Dies.  It also included 5 sheets of Smooth White Heavy Weight Cardstock, as well 1 sheet each of Coral Crush, Grape Jelly, Grapesicle, Gravel Gray, Peach Bellini, Periwinkle, and Razzelberry Heavy Weight Cardstocks.  Oh and 10 Envelopes.  How cool is that!  So for my card, the cardbase was an 11" x 4 1/4" piece of the White Cardstock scored at 5 1/2".  The next layer was some of the MFT cardstock in the kit.  Since it wasn't labeled, I'm going to guess that it is the Grapesicle.  If you know differently, please comment and straighten me out.  I wanted to stamp tone-on-tone but didn't have a matching ink so I substitued Stampin' Up! Wisteria Wonder.  I think it matched fairly well.  I used my Misti to make sure that I got good images of the flowers and could stamp more than one at a time.  Next I used some of the White Cardstock to cut a Tag from an older MFT Stitched Tag Die set.  I then ran some adhesive along the back of the left side of the tag and adhered some lace to the side of the tag.  Again with my Misti,  I stamped the flowers and leaves with Stampin' Up! Archival Black Ink onto Bristol Paper.  I used my Zig Clean Color Markers to color the flowers and leaves.   Once the flowers and leaves were dry I attached them with Fast Fuse to the Tag.  I punched a hole with a 1/8" circle punch for the top of the tag and added some Natural Twine from FSJ.  I then attached the tag with Foam Tape to the Front of the Card.  The word Hugs was cut using the Words For Friends dies in the kit.  I attached them to a White Banner I had cut.  I made a nest of some more of the Natural Twine and attached it to the banner with Foam Tape that adhered the Hugs Banner as well.  Last but never least, I had to add 3 purple sequins with Tim Holtz Matt Medium.  I absolutely love how it turned out.  I came close to adding some Wink of Stella but I loved it so much I didn't want to chance it. lol

Thanks so very much for stopping by!  It makes my day!  Blessings, Tina
