Aim High - MFTWSC # 28 & CTD # 150

Okey dokey, it’s Color Throwdown and MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge  time again! Today’s colors were chosen by Laura and I’m liking them.

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. 


I’m using one of the newest PIs – Aim High. She’s colored with Copic markers and her dress and the kite are paper pieced.


On the front, I’m using the new File Tab Die-namics die for my sentiment and Pretty Posies dies for my sweet little flower.


In addition. I’m using the Double Scallop Border Die-namics die on the inside of my card, along with another sentiment from the set.

Remember, you do not have to have the exact colors to play the Color Throwdown challenge. 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 CTD150 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!
