My Favorite Things Sketch and Color Challenge

Today predicts to be gorgeous outside.  We had some rain last night and everything is very green and the sun is out already.  Birds are chirping and gathering on the bird feeder.  We have put up an addition one to feed all of them.  Later today, I am picking up the grand kids, Jack and Eliza from an early release from school and the day will be ours to play and have fun.  That is what it is all about! 
This is why I am up early and posting on my blog to show you the card that I made for
My Favorite Things Challenge.  One card for both the Sketch and Color Challenge.  I have purchased a few of their stamp sets with some great offers recently.  I have a lot to choose from. 
Here is my card

 I used GKD card stock for the base in Kraft, and a layer of design paper from American Crafts.
The stamp is Because Your Special and I used the image and the sentiment.  Changed the "Happy" to "ZIP" to fit the card.  Dies are MFT, Zippered, Crossed Stitch Circle, and rectangle die by Spellbinder.

I stamped the design on the circle with Distressed inks using Picked Raspberry and Crushed Olive, and Wplus 9 stamp called More Fresh Cuts.  Silver foil paper for the teeth on the zipper. 

This is the sketch


 I hope that your weekend is great!  Mine is starting now!
These are the colors



  1. What a darling card and I love the zipper die and the sentiment which goes perfectly with it. Colors are awesome too!

  2. Oh she is ADORABLE! I love that you changed the sentiment up a bit, it goes perfectly with that zipper die--isn't that fantastic?!?! I have looked at it more than once but still have not pulled the trigger. lol Have FUN with the kids, you're all so lucky! Enjoy your day! xo~

  3. Love your take on this challenge. It is so creative to use the zipper to create the curved part of the sketch. I don't remember seeing that zipper die before but love how you fit it with the sentiment, You are amazing.

  4. So stinkin' CUTE!!! I have never seen that zipper - it's awesome. Also love that cross stitched circle die cut - and this is a great take on the sketch. So clever to change the greeting to use the word zip too!

  5. That zipper is the coolest thing I have ever seen! What a fantastic card and you changed the sentiment to match! So clever my friend hope you and the Grandkids had fun!

  6. How neat! Love how you incorporate the zipper. Thank you for playing along with us at MFT Challenge. :)
