It's been quite a while since I've joined a CASology challenge. I'm linking up
this card just under the wire for this week's challenge.

Here's my card.

This card came together quickly, thanks to some tree parts that I had in my
stash of diecuts. I colored the tops with Zig markers and added trunks to them. 
I adhered them to a card base and grounded them with the sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you're having a great (long) weekend!

CAS(E) this Sketch #204

Meet Sketch #204 compliments of N@ Ali.

And here's my take on it.

The two part butterfly was watercolored on the solid layer, and a black layer
was adhered on top. A single stitch frame was added to a kraft card base and I 
adhered the butterfly and popped up the white embossed sentiment. The card was 
finished off with some black Nuvo Drops.

Visit CAS(E) this Sketch to see how the rest of the design team interpreted the
sketch and join us if you can. Link up your card(s) by Thursday, January 19th.
Hope to see you in the gallery!

MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #315

Are you ready for a new Wednesday Sketch Challenge? Here's Sketch #315.

And here's what I came up with.

Three beakers and accessories were cut from watercolor card stock. The liquid
portion inside of each beaker was ink distressed and details were drawn in with
a white pigment pen. All the pieces were assembled on a card per the sketch,
and I finished off with the stamped sentiment.

Visit the Card Challenges blog for more inspiration and get all the details on
how you could win up to a $20 MFT gift voucher!

MFT January 2017 Product Launch & Release

The day you've been waiting for is here!
You may now purchase My Favorite Things January Release! You can find
all the spankin' new goodies here in the MFT Store.

Before you run off, I'd like to share one last project with you using the gorgeous
Floral Fantasy background, and possibly add to your shopping list!

I white embossed the image on a watercolor panel and used ink daubers
and dye inks to shade in the background, then "fine tuned" it with colored
pencils. The "thanks" was cut three times from mint card stock and
adhered together to form a thick sentiment.

I inked the bottom portion of the sentiment for an ombré look, then added
the white embossed sentiment on a banner. The card was finished off with
some clear sequins.

There you have it, MFT's January Release! Don't forget to stop by all the
participating Creative Team members' blogs and leave a comment to win
one of two $100 MFT Gift Vouchers! Thanks so much for stopping by during
