MFT Challenge

Here is a card I made for the My Favorite Things March Guest Designer challenge. I also used the Sweet Sunday Sketch for today (SSSC106) -so two challenges met in one card! :)
The MFT challenge is to use Die-namics on a card to create dimension. I don't have yet, so I used Spellbinders dies and Taylored Expressions flower dies, along with punches. I colored the image, Birthday Girl a la mode from MFT, with copics to match this fabulous paper from Basic Grey. I pulled the pinks and browns out of the papers for the rest of my card. To match the sketch, I cut out a large circle of dsp and popped that up over the horizontal panel of a complimentary dsp. The flower bloom is made up of die cut flowers and circle punches. My daughter takes credit for this idea, and it's a good one! I used the sentiment from another MFT set, What's Up Cupcake? The background pink panel is embossed with Swiss Dots.
Thanks for stopping by! Be sure to stop back tomorrow for the latest release from Paper Pretties!!
