Love You With All My Heart - CTD #123 and MFTWSC1

The Color Throwdown team is back and ready to challenge you to some awesome colors this week! Tammy Hershberger is our host and here are the colors she chose.

And here's my card. I'm using PI - Love You With All My Heart, stamped on a Perfect Paper Panel with Memento Rich Cocoa, colored with Copic markers and paper pieced.


Here's the inside.




 


Remember, you do not have to have the exact colors to play. If you don't, just use the closest you have. So, c'mon over to the Color Throwdown blog and play along with us this week. Please use the link service to post your card and please link directly to your card so we can find it easily. And please include a link in your post to the Color Throwdown. If you upload your card to a public forum, please use the keyword CTD123 so we can see your beauty all in one place. Hope to see you there! Be sure to check out what the other team members have come up with this week, and help us welcome January's Guest Designer, Lori Tecler!

This card is also for the MFT Wedneday Stamp Club challenge. MFT is super excited to announce that Wednesday Stamp Club will now be centered around a weekly sketch. We know your stamping time is precious, and we want you to maintain as much creative freedom as possible. Sketches are the perfect starting point to a card. Use it as a blueprint, and create a card using the stamp set and supplies that strike your fancy. You can turn to the sketches time and again for creative inspiration.

Here's this week's sketch:


A new sketch will be posted each Wednesday at midnight on the MFT blog. You'll also find the sketch in the MFT forum on SCS on Wednesday morning, as well as in the weekly newsletter. Our talented Challenge and Design Teams will be on hand to provide plenty of inspiration to get you started.
 
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 the given keyword in the keyword box, during the upload process. After the deadline, 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.

Thanks SO much for stopping by!
