MFT December Release Countdown--Day 5

It's time for My Favorite Things December Release Countdown!
As always, there's something for everyone and Day 5 starts with cuteness
from Somebunny I Love.

The bunny, toy bear, and crescent moon were stamped and colored with
Copics, then cut with the matching dies. A panel of Stone Gray card stock
was cut from the rectangle element in Blueprints 24. The Starry Circle
Die-namics was used to cut out a circle from the gray panel and also
from a piece of watercolor card stock.

I ink distressed the starry portion with several colors of Distress
inks, and spattered some water over it. The gray panel was adhered
to a white card base, the starry circle was popped into the space, and
the images were popped up over it. The card was finished off with
the sweet sentiment.

Visit today's countdown post at My Favorite Things for more inspiration
from participating team members and leave a comment there for a
chance to win $75 in prizes!

CAS(E) this Sketch #200

Welcome back to CAS(E) this Sketch

Did you enjoy your two week hiatus? Did you miss us?
Well we're glad you're back and hope you're ready for Sketch #200.
Whoa, our 200th sketch? That calls for a celebration, don't you think?
More about that later. First, here's the sketch, compliments of Sam.

And here's my take on it.

Yep, I rotated the sketch and let a sloth hang from some birch trees.
Now I know sloths don't hang on birch trees, but I had to have that
sloth hang somewhere and birch trunks fit the sketch.
Plus, I think she looks quite happy there, no?

So to commemorate our 200th sketch, our fearless leader Chrissy is
giving away a generous prize to the winner of this week's sketch! Head to  
her blog to see the prize and join the challenge if you can. Link up your
card(s) by Thursday, December 8th and we hope to see you in the gallery!

MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #308

Are you ready for this week's MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge?
Here's Sketch #308.

And here's what I came up with.

I started by stamping a Natural card base with the Etched Tribal Background in
Versamark ink. A stitched circle was cut from Sno Cone card stock and lightly
ink distressed and spattered with water. A strip of Sour Apple card stock was
cut with a grass die and ink distressed on the bottom.

The pup and butterfly were colored with Copic markers and cut with the
matching dies. I stamped the sentiment and adhered everything to the
card following the sketch.

Visit the Card Challenges blog for all the details and join our weekly
challenge. You could be the random winner of up to a $20 MFT gift voucher!
Hope to see you in the gallery!
