MFT Guest Designer Sketch

Hey everyone!  I cannot tell you how often I make a card based on a sketch but I never manage to get pictures taken and posted in time to actually enter my card.  Well....this time I did it!  This past year I have just fallen in love with MFT Stamps and Dienamics.  I cannot get enough of them, and I use them on just about every card I make these days. For this card, I used the Guest Designer Sketch for January as inspiration for my Dad's Birthday Card.  The colours are MFT Steel Grey, Sweet Tooth and CTMH Heavenly Blue and I just love them with the Bo Bunny Powder Mountain Papers.  You'll be seeing more of this combo in the coming weeks.
This was the first time that I was able to use the Fancy Flourish Die with success...because I now how the Metal Adapter Plate for my Cuttlebug.  What a difference a little piece of metal can make!   It was also the first time that I used my Beautiful Bows Dienamics.  

On the inside of my card, I re-stamped the image along with a fun birthday sentiment.  I don't always finish the inside of my cards, but this one just called for it and I'm so glad that I did. 
We're having a family dinner for my Dad's Birthday today (Sunday) and then there are only two days left until my parents are off again travelling in their RV.   It's been a nice visit, but I know they want to get back to where the weather is warm and the sun is shining.  I don't blame them.  :-)

The kids are back to school tomorrow as well, so its back to the routine.  I've really, really enjoyed these last two weeks off with my kids.  I learn so much from them every day. 

Stamps:  A la modes Big Birthday Wishes, MFT More Essential Sentiments, Happy Thoughts
Papers: MFT Steel Grey, Sweet Tooth, CTMH Heavenly Blue, Bo Bunny Powder Mountain
Ink: Memento Black, Copic Markers
Accessories:  MFT Dienamics:  Photo Corners, Fancy Flourish, Beautiful Bows, Fish Tail Flags, Kaisercraft Rhinestones.

Great Birthday card! Love the dienamics - that bow rocks! Great sketch too!
I too have enjoyed my time off with the kiddos and regret that it is over. I will be looking forward to the weekend.
See you in a few hours - looking forward to skiing with the girls!

Great card. The flourish and the bling are a great touch and brave on a masculine birthday card....but really works!

Fabulous card Dan!!! I'm like you about finishing the inside of the card but I always love how it looks in other people's cards (: I'm glad you have some time to visit with your parents and have fun with the girls!!
