Happy Bird-day! - CTD #134 and MFTWSC #12

Hi, there! I'm back today with another Color Throwdown and MFTWSC card. Today's colors are brought to us by Danielle:

Fabulous combo, right? And here's the MFT sketch for this week.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, here's my card. As you can see, I flipped the sketch.

I stamped little PI You're So Tweet on a Perfect Paper Panel with Memento Rich Cocoa ink, colored her with Copic markers, and paper pieced her little jumper. For the sentiment element, I used the Rounded Banner Die-namics dies. I used the Simply Scallops Die-namics die for the green border and my new fave flower, Upsy Daisy Die-namics dies for the flower.

Here's the inside--another copy of PI and another sentiment from the set.

 And here are the dies I used:

And here's a little something you might want to know about:

We've been spring cleaning here at MFT!  We found a huge number of products that were limited edition, retired, or are retiring, and we have filled a big box full of our finds.
From Wednesday, March 23 though Friday, March 25, we are having a Spring Cleaning SaleWhen you place ANY order that requires shipping, you will receive a freebie with your order.  It could be a full spool of ribbon, a patterned paper pack, or any other item out of our Spring Cleaning Sale box.  It'll be a suprise... a little extra reason to look forward to receiving your order.  You have three days to take advantage of this fun sale, so get your wish list together and go shop HERE in the MFT Boutique.
*The Spring Cleaning Sale freebie is ONLY good for orders that require shipping.  If your order is ONLY for digital products, you will NOT receive a freebie.  We're sorry, but the shipping department cannot take requests for the freebie.
