You're A Racket!

Week #27 of My Favorite Things' Sketch Challenge... & boy, did I need this time to just sit, & be "lost" in my card cr8'ions! Nothing restores my mind and soul quite like some "Me Time" - crafting some cards.

Using one of the newer releases of a la modes from MFT, I've Met My Match for this week's card.  First, here's the sketch to follow:

My card gave me another opportunity to work with my Cuttlebug and a few of the Spellbinders die sets; the more I use/learn of the die-cutting, the more I am really enjoying it and all the possibilities it can present to any of my cr8'ions! 

This was my first time using the Die-namics & making the "rolled flowers."  Certainly will need to take some time to "play" with that element more and how to perfect it for my card cr8'ions.  I did ink up the edges of the flowers, so as to make it stand out from the white background; the flower centers are metal embellishments which I colored using my Copic Markers, so they would better match the card's color palette. (All the papers are from Basic Grey's Out of Print Paper Pad; the newsprint paper leaves are from Recollections for Michael's Stores.)

Thanks for taking a look once again this week for the MFTWSC!  Hope to see you next week!

Happy Cr8'ing!
