MFT Sketch Challenge #17-For a Beautiful Friend

Hey there! I'm back today with another MFT card! My month as guest designer for one of my favorite stamp companies EVER is flying by! Before you know it, the release will be upon us and another lucky girl will get to be Guest Designer! I guess I should stop rushing it, right?;) Okay, back to the card! This week we have another FABULOUS sketch for you! 


Here's my card using Inspired by Spring {again}! 

I just can't stop using this amazing set! There are so many fun stamps and sentiments packed into this one, I just want to use them all on ONE card, lol! I decided to use my beloved "Botanicals" paper by Prima for this card, and took all the color inspiration from this paper! 


I stamped the branch (these look like cherry blossoms, yes?) in Crumb Cake ink and then used my B000 Copic marker for just a hint of color. Next, I spritzed the image with Sugar Cookie Shimmer Mist for some shine and I love that the splatters look so natural, lol! I was worried when my spritz bottle sprayed all over, but when it dried, it really gave it a worn, shabby look that I love!
I stamped the sentiment on a tag and tucked it behind the floral panel.


This is a closeup of the butterfly I cut out with the Butterfly Die-namics! I sprinkled it with Martha Stewarts chunky glitter and then added a button and twine bow. The butterfly is popped up on a dimensional. I also used my Faux Crotchet Die-namics border die, one of my favorites ever! 

Okay, well make sure you go peek in on Kim's Blog for a list of all the DT girls playing along this week! I can't wait to see what they've done with this SUPER FUN sketch:) Also, the Freeze Frames have begun for the release coming up! Head on over to Kim's blog to see them:) You are going to *LOOOOOOOVE* this release!!!!!!!!!
