Thinking Of You - MFTWSC #4 and Color Throwdown #126

Are you ready for another MFTWSC and Color Throwdown all wrapped up into one card? 

First the 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 Challenge and Design Teams will be on hand to provide plenty of inspiration to get you started. 

And, Danielle is the Color Throwdown host this week and chose these colors:

Perfect for Basic Grey's Marjolaine paper.

I stamped little PI - Because You're Special on a Perfect Paper Panel (temporarily out of stock) with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, colored her with Copic markers and paper pieced her sweet little dress. Then I cut her out, popped her up on a patterned paper circle matted with a Dainty Doily Die-namics layer in Blue Bayou. I tied a big ol' green bow around the base card and added the sentiment flag. Adorable, no?!

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 CTD126 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! I can't believe this is the last week in January so it's Lori's last week with us. Be sure to show her some love! Thanks, Lori! We've enjoyed having you with us so much!
