There’s a New Challenge in Town–Introducing MFT Color Palette Challenge!!


Hi, everyone! I’m back with a brand new challenge from MFT! Today is the very first Color Palette Challenge and we are so excited about it! This new challenge will be posted on the first Thursday of each month, at noon EST. Players will have until the Wednesday before the next challenge to link their cards to the MFT Blog. One winner will be randomly selected from all the entries and will receive an MFT Voucher. See the MFT Blog today for all the details. Fun, fun!!!


To kick off this new challenge, we are going with the traditional MFT colors: pink, black, and white. For my card, I started with a Bubblegum card stock base, then embossed a piece of Sweet Tooth card stock with MPD Petal Circles stencil. I love how you can use stencils for more than stenciling! Then I matted it with Black Licorice card stock and popped it up on foam. I then added a couple of glitter paper strips, in black and silver, and a Heart STAX Die-namics cut from Bubblegum card stock. I cut the “U” from By the Letters Uppercase Die-namics out of silver glitter paper and popped it up on foam on the heart, then cut “love” from the soon-to-be-released Lots of Love Die-namics, using Black Licorice card stock and popped it up, as well. To finish it off, I added a few clear gems.

On the inside, I stamped a sentiment from MPD Distressed Hearts with Black Licorice ink.


And that’s all from me today! We hope to see lots of you playing our new challenge!!
