From the heart

Now that I've got my MFT Idol project done for this week (at least I won't have to stay up until midnight tonight finishing it like last week, LOL) I could do a couple of fun challenges. This card is for MFT Sketch Challenge #73 and No Time To Stamp's Stamp Simply Challenge #79--to use ribbon tabs.

My base card is Whisper White with layers of Garden Green and Bashful Blue, with the upper corners paper pierced. The next elements are Garden Green and DP from a DCWV Matstack called Whimsy. The focal image was stamped using a MFT set called Bundles of Bouquets on Gina K. Pure Luxury 80 lb card stock with Memento Rich Cocoa ink and colored with Copic markers (see below). It was then cut/embossed with a Rectangle Nestabilities square, as was the Bashful Blue mat, and the Garden Green mat was cut with a Scalloped Rectangle die. Two light blue ribbon tabs were attached to it and it was popped up on 3M foam squares. The sentiment is from the same set and is done pretty much like the focal image, but needed no coloring. An apricot colored flower brad accents it and it's also up on foam squares.

Thanks for dropping by!
