Hello, Friend - Be Awesome

Hi all and thanks so much for stopping by today.  It's time for MFT Wednesday Stamp Club Sketch #80.  If you'd like to see what the rest of the participating designers came up with click on over to the MFT Blog.

I was feeling inspired and came up with 2 cards for this week's sketch.  

First up is a card inspired by my daughter, Madeline.  She has been going to tumbling classes twice a week for a couple months now, in an effort to improve her tumbling skills for her first year on the cheerleading team.  It's been a joy to see her improve and I wanted a card to encourage her to keep trying hard.  The new Gymnast Pure Innocence stamp set is just what I needed!  The adorable "Be Awesome" sentiment is stamped on the Mini File Tab.

Her school colors are black and gold so I centered the card around that.  I dressed her in a polka dot leotard and she was colored with Copic markers and Prismacolor pencils. 

My second card uses Freckles.  She is so cute.  I went for a soft color palette with lots of white space.   The sentiment is stamped on one of the Sentiment Strips.  I added a little strip of Simply Scallops along the bottom of the card.

She is colored with Copic markers.  I paper-pieced her shirt and pockets.  I added some blush cheeks and a tiny bit of pink above her nose.  I added a simple strip of Sweet Tooth Ribbon to the card.

Here are the Die-namics I used:

Here is the sketch for you.  I hope you'll play along.  :)
