Love Yourself–MFTWSC #59

Pin It


Are you ready for another MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge? 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 was a little intimidated by this sketch at first, but once I got started on it I had a ton of fun! I think it was the block-y elements and once I figured out how to soften them I was very happy with this layout. I can definitely see me using it again.

OK, so after I got my layers figured out and stitched in place, I proceeded to create my focal image using the
Die-namics Four Point Frame and Own Your Story Stamp Set. Then I stamped the sentiment on a First Place Award Ribbon Die-namics die cut and nestled it under a Pretty Posies Die-namics flower. I had to add some Upsy Daisy Die-namics leaves, of course ;-) A little baker’s twine and a button finish it off!

Here’s the inside with the notebook paper image and another sentiment stamped on top. Sweet message, don’t you think?


Here are the Die-namics dies I used on this card:




And that’s it! Thanks SO much for stopping by today!
