Celebrate MFT Day and somethin' new!

Every month on the 20th is Celebrate MFT day. The somethin' new is a customer blog hop! You can find out all about it here, but basically, we're going to be showcasing some of My Favorite Things' customers on this day every month. So, be sure and check out the gallery at SCS and get your entries in. Future blog hop participants will be chosen from participants, so get those cards in the gallery!

Here's my card for Celebrate MFT Day. I'm using the stamp from the first MFT kit that's available all month called On the Pier. The image was stamped on Perfect Paper Panels with Memento Rich Cocoa ink and colored with Copic markers. I did a lot of distressing on this card, both with Ranger Old Photograph distress ink and a sanding block. The sentiment was stamped on Very Vanilla with Really Rust ink, punched out and layered on Blue Bayou cut/embossed with a Reverse Circle Nestabilities die. I like the weathered look of the distressed stitching along with that weathered wood paper. Some antique copper brads and sailor's knots in place of ribbon add the right accents, don't you think?

Also, be sure to check out the Bubble Bin today--some great sets at fantastic prices!

I'm so glad you dropped by today!
