I used MFT sketch 181 for this birthday card. The card is for someone who likes purple, so I used pink and purple as my combo and love how it looks together.


I started with a 4.25 x 5.5 card but later changed to 4×5.5. I used MFT blueprint 3 and 13 for my panels/ the first rectangle was cut and then stamped with Hero Arts friend stamp with spun sugar Distress INk(DI). I then cut a postage stamp die and added MFT-MPD delicate doily stencils with seedless preserves, to create the lighter shade dots I rubbed off some ink on scrap paper and then continued the stencilling. I did not follow the pattern of the stencil but moved it around to suit my paper. I cut the circle panel and embossed it with purple black embossing powder. The sentiment is from MFT birthday greetings. the border behind is from notched tag border in this sweet gingham paper I had in my stash. I cut a few rolled roses, colored them wiht seedless preserves and pickled raspberry DI, peeled paint and evergreen DI for the Rose leaves and Martha Stewart punched leaves. As a last touch I added stardust stickles. The card still looked incomplete so I added twine and sequins at the bottom. Perfect!

Here is a close up of the embossing and flowers. They look gorgeous IRL.


here is the inside, I love the look of All the Movies sentiments.
