A Krafty Day

I was really inspired by the cards Julia Stainton has up at The Classroom.   Here`s one I made today.

I`ve used only dies from My Favorite Things today.  I think I have used four in this card:  Mix and Match Banner dies, Mini Tabs Foursome die, Chevron Stripes die, and lastly the Botanical Beauty die.  I`ve always loved the dies from MFT. They work so easily and can work on both scrapbook layouts and cards.

The stamp is also from My Favorite Things. I believe it was from a triple scoop set I got a while ago.

All the cardstock is kraft paper and the papers that I used for the flower was from an old book that I got at a local thrift store.  I used white ink for the sentiment as well as to sponge around the edges.

I`m entering this card into the My Favorite Things challenge.  The winner is lucky enough to be a guest designer for MFT for the month of Sept!  I think that`s really exciting and a top notch prize. If you`re interested, you can get all the details here.  Why not whip up a card yourself and join in.

Oh yah, since I`m entering this card in the Scrapbookers Paradise challenge, I need to mention that I`m not near any of their stores. However, I was lucky enough to visit 2 in Calgary a while ago.  Great sure to check them out.
