Sending a Flurry of Love

Hello! TGIF! It seems like just yesterday I was writing a post about the weekend, and here another one is upon us. First I have a card that I made for the latest MFT Guest Designer Contest using the MFTGUESTDT1012 sketch.

I started by stamping and coloring the sweet PI - Flurry of Love. I pieced her jacket and added some Platinum Stickles to the snowflakes. I used the Rounded Banner STAX to die cut my image, then I distressed the edges and cut the next size banner to mat her. For my bottom border, I used the Banner Strip Die, stamped "miss u" with the Typewriter Alphabet, and finally added some red rhinestones between each banner. I paired everything with some paper from the Basic Grey Aspen Frost collection and distressed the edges of my paper and cardstock. Finally, I tied a bow with some Kraft Grosgrain Ribbon and added a Natural Button with a bit of red twine tie through it.

Here's a look from another angle:

Thanks so much for stopping by!
