MFT Sketch 214 {My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration Blog}

During the month of February, I am thrilled to be joining the talented gals at the MFT Challenge & Inspiration Blog! I'll be sharing a card based on the weekly sketches, each Wednesday, throughout the month. I hope you'll play along and join in the fun! 
It's been a long time since I created a card from a sketch - I forgot just how much fun it is! Sometimes my projects look very much like the sketch, but often I like to flip it or twist it around. Today is the first day of sketch #214 - you can create a card or any other paper crafted project you'd like, using this week's sketch. Be sure to link your project at the MFT challenge blog for a chance at the weekly My Favorite Things Gift Voucher worth up to $20! 

So without further ado, here is the sketch. . . but if you want to see my card, well, you'll have to head on over to the MFT Challenge & Inspiration Blog! But never fear, here on my lovely little blog, I have a coordinating card that I created, that matches my sketch card - and what's that I see? Why yes, it's a sneak peek of my sketch card peeking out from underneath. 

To create this card, I stamped the buttons on white cardstock. Then I layered a piece of vellum over the top. The amazingly cool headphones are a new die set from MFT, (Headphones Die-namics) that coordinates with the new Keep On Rockin' stamps. I adhered the die cuts and stamped the musical note and sentiment right onto the vellum. 

Vellum can be tricky to adhere, so I used staples to attach it to my card. 

Please head on over to the MFT Challenge & Inspiration Blog. You'll see my sketch card, plus projects from the design team, and you can submit your sketch card for a chance to win!

Love your take on the sketch! Love how the vellum softens the pattern and makes the headphones really pop!
