Hey, there! It’s Wednesday noon so it much be time for this week’s MFTWSC! Are you ready? Here’s this week’s sketch. All of the details about the sketch challenge are available on the MFT blog as well as in the weekly newsletter. The Design Team will be on hand to provide plenty of inspiration to get you started.


I went kinda scrappy for today’s card and it was so much fun! I started with a Kraft card stock base. On a piece of the new and FABULOUS Grout Gray card stock, I stamped Typewriter Text Background with Grout Gray ink and stitched it to a piece of Sweet Tooth card stock. To that I stitched on a piece of Sweet Tooth card stock that was stamped with the hounds tooth image from DC Large Scale Backgrounds with Blue Raspberry ink. I tied around some hemp cord and then adhered the whole thing to the base. Next I stamped the frame from MPD Distressed Hearts Frame Die-namics with Steel Gray ink, the center with Wild Cherry ink, and the banner with Blu Raspberry ink and popped it up with foam. To finish off, I tied on a Wild Cherry button.

On the inside, I stamped a sentiment from Love Story.


And that’s it! Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope to see you all playing in this week’s MFTWSC!
