MFT Card Sketch 151

Today I completed a card that I made following MFT Card sketch 151 which looks like this

Every week I have good intentions on completing the card sketch & just somehow run out of time before the next one is out lol  So this time, I got onto it right away!!

So this is what my card looks like

I used the gorgeous little PI stamp Butterfly Kisses from MFT that I stamped onto a circle cut from the Pierced Circle STAX.  I paper pieced her outfit with some patterned paper & the wings with a very shiny piece of wrapping paper I had.  I was going to colour her with copics, but I thought that she looked better as she is with the white background, it just gives it a nice effect without too much other colour added.  I did colour in the small flower in her hair with a hot pink, to make it stand out more.

The background was die cut using an MFT die called Flying Butterflies which are just so cute!!  I inked around the edges with VersaColor Orchid, then used a clear embossing powder that had a crystal glitter in it.  You may not be able to tell from the photo, but the edges are very sparkly & shiny.  I also did the same on the edges of the butterfly, which was cut from an MFT die set called Butterflies, a 3 piece die set.  The Butterfly Wishes is a stamp from the Winged Beauties set, which is embossed with a glitter embossing powder also.

I popped the image circle up with foam dots & glued the butterfly onto the edge & raised the wings a little to make it look like it is flying, here is a close up 

I hope you like my card & I am hoping to start following along with more MFT card sketches.  As you can see, I LOVE MFT & have lots & lots of their stamps & dies to play with  :)

Thanks for stopping by
