Surprise Birthday Window Card

Hi all!  Today I have a card made for the MFT Sketch Challenge.  Here’s the outside view:


And here’s the inside:


I used a bunch of MFT products: Sweet Birthday Wishes stamp set and matching dies, Blueprints 12, Blueprints 13, Tickled Pink cardstock, Wild Wisteria cardstock, and Brown Paper Bag cardstock.

I colored with Spectrum Noir colored pencils:

  • skin – 100, 89, 8, 7, 4, 1
  • pink – 33, 34
  • turquoise – 53, 54
  • purple – 76, 77
  • yellow – 84
  • black - 120

I used my MISTI to help me stamp everything, especially getting the girl positioned just right in the window.

I also made a video:

And here’s THE LINK in case you can’t see the video player.

Other items used in the video:

This is also for the following challenges:

I hope you like it and TFL!
