Flower Power

Hi everyone and welcome to this month's edition of MFT''s Greatest Hits.  This month we are featuring the à la modes line of stamps.  The à la modes are cling RUBBER, and cute as pie.  The design team will be showing you some of their favorites from the line, so be sure to check Kim's blog at 11 AM EST for the complete, linked listed of participants.  Until then, feast your eyes on this bold and bright (shocker) creation from me:

There are a couple things worth mentioning about this card:
  1. I didn't use any patterned paper on this card (unless you count a "scratchy" piece of paper from a 6 X 6 pad in solid yellow).
  2. I used an embossing folder on this card.  My embossing folders have been collecting dust, so I am happy I found a use for one.
  3. I used a Swarovski crystal flower charm on this card.  My daughter, Madeline, commented that $5 for 5 charms is WAY too much to spend... LOL (why is she looking at the price tag, anyway? LOL)  Silly girl... I got them on sale (1/2 off) and plus... Swarovski crystals are ALWAYS worth it.
  4. 3 of the 4 bulbs for my light box are burnt out.  Sorry for the bad pic(s).  I need to go buy some replacements, but every time I go to the store, I forget about them.  Perhaps I should try the age-old "pin the note on my shirt" method?

For my card I used MFT's à la mode stamp set, Groovy Girl.  I also used the yummy gingham ribbon that I love.  :)

Want some good MFT news?  There is a PROMOTION going on at MFT and here are the details for you:
