You’re so Tweet–MFTWSC #60


Are you ready for another MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge? Here’s this week’s sketch. You can find the sketch on the MFT blog and also in the MFT forum on SCS, as well as in the weekly newsletter. The Design Team will be on hand to provide plenty of inspiration to get you started.


AS you can see, I flipped the orientation of the sketch but otherwise followed the layout. I pulled out my Homespun Birdhouse Die-namics and Stamp Set for this scrappy card. I cut all of the elements from patterned paper and arranged my little scene.

Here’s a close up of the sweet little birdie. I attached the front part of the wing directly to the bird’s body and popped the end up on a bit of foam for dimension. The bird is perching on a
Branch With Leaves Die-namics die cut.


I added a twine-tied button and attached the sentiment, which was stamped on a First Place Award Ribbon Die-namics fishtail die, on top of a Open Scallop Edge Die-namics border.


Here’s the birdhouse up close. I cut the hole out and popped up some paper on foam strips to add dimension to this, then adhered it to the card.


And here’s the inside, with another sentiment from the set. What an adorable way to say thank you, don’t you think?


And here are the Die-namics dies I used on this card:





Thanks SO much for stopping by! I’ll be back tomorrow with my Day Two Teaser!
