MFT Guest Designer Challenge

Good evening! What a wonderful day this has been. I was out of school and took the day all for myself. No work, no phone calls, no cleaning, nothing but relaxing and crafting. I am feeling very thankful today. :o)

I made this card for the My Favorite Things GDT call. Here is the fab sketch for this month's challenge.

I love this stamp. It is called On Safari. I have always wanted to go on a safari. Maybe one day. :o)
I stamped the image with Memento, Tuxedo Black and colored with Copics. I distressed the paper edges with a Tim Holtz distresser and inked them with chalk ink in chestnut roan.  I added a  Fancy Flourish Die-namics, it makes such a great embellishment for any project. I am a button girl so I just had to add one of the awesome kraft buttons from MFT. I also used  hemp cord and jellybean green ribbon from MFT. I also used pearls and a charm from Inky Impressions. I cut a banner and stamped it with one of the sentiments that comes in the On Safari stamp set. I attached it using a brad from my stash.

I am playing in the following challenges:
Kaboodle Doodles: buttons and bows
Dream Valley: anything goes
Glitter n Sparkle: lots of layers
Stamptacular Sunday: recipe (Recipe: ribbon/twine, Pearls/Gems, Dies/Punches)

Thank you so much for stopping by. It is always a pleasure. I hope you have a fantastic night.

Until next time...........
