MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #45

Well hello there!  Today I have a card to show you for the MFT stamp club sketch challenge.  I (along with many of my fellow team members) used the new Pure Innocence Christmas Caroler and paired her with some Echo Park Seasons Greetings papers.  I took some liberties with the scallop section at the bottom and used the Woodgrain Fence die as well as the Wonky Scallop Border die.  I was hoping it would suggest snow piled up against the fence.  I still had my twine and lace trim out from doing the Creative challenge the other day so I used that for the top horizontal element and to embellish the top of my tag cut with the Tag You're It die (which can now be purchased on its own as well!).  A snowflake from the Snowflake Trio die finished it all off.  I must admit that I thought this sketch would be easy - until I started making my card - my desk now looks like a hurricane hit it!

Remember, you can get all the details by visiting the MFT Blog and the MFT forum on SCS (look for the most recent WSC thread). You'll need to upload your card in the SCS gallery using the keyword shown on the sketch. You will have the chance to win up to $20 in MFT money. One winner is chosen at random each week!

Hello Kerry....lovin this card once again. Do you have a post on your Wise Men yet? I am hoping to come to the city for a Copics class....can you contact me at: also to talk about the Kards for Kids card drive going on till Dec 15th.

I hope to see you in the city at the store again. I am looking forward to doing some cropping there and recruiting my friend who lives in the city too.

Your blog is wonderful...your cards have such colour and are so delightful. Thanks for sharing.
