MFT Sketch Challenge #13

Hey everyone and welcome to another weekly MFT sketch challenge! If you haven't played along yet, come and join us! There's a sketch challenge every Wednesday and there are prizes to be won! :-)

Really quick, here's how the WSC sketch challenge works:

A new sketch will be posted each Wednesday at midnight (Eastern Time) on the MFT blog. You'll also find the sketch in the MFT forum on SCS on Wednesday morning, as well as in the MFT weekly newsletter. Our talented Challenge and Design Teams will be on hand to provide plenty of inspiration to get you started.

We encourage you all to play along, and to enter your card in the weekly draw for a $15 gift voucher to the MFT Boutique. Simply follow the sketch and create a card or other paper creation. You may use any stamps and supplies that you wish. Each week, a keyword is assigned to the sketch. All you need to do to enter, is upload your card to the gallery at SCS, and enter the given keyword in the keyword box, during the upload process. After the deadline, we randomly choose a winner from that week's entries and the winner will receive a $15 gift voucher. If the winning card uses MFT stamps, the participant will earn a $5 bonus, for a total of a $20 gift voucher! That is up to $100 per month in prizes, JUST for playing along!

Upload your card or paper project to SplitcoastStampers with keyword MFTWSC13.

Here's a card I created using the Clearly Sentimental About Time stamp set. 

I wanted to go for a masculine theme so I could add more "guy" cards to my card stash. ☺ This card would be perfect for hubbs or my Dad or even one of my Uncles. I used the new Bo Bunny Timepiece paper collection. I had a great time creating this card, and even did a video showing some of the steps taken to pull this together. Click HERE to watch.

    Great cards and just love the embellishments that you have used. I'm still working on using a bit more on my cards. Very hard for me, I just make a mess of my cards. It's nice to see your cards and to get ideas. I need to try a challenge one day.
    Thanks for sharing your work with us.
    Blessings to you. : )

    This is a most gorgeous card :)
    However, I've looked everywhere for that Fiskars corner border punch and cannot find it. Is it really new or older? I can sure see why you love it---it's awesome :)
