WSC 50 - Home...

Thank you SO much to everyone who left well wishes on my announcement post - only a few more weeks until we find out if we're having a boy or a girl, exciting stuff!

I'm back today with a square card using this week's Wednesday Sketch Challenge from My Favourite Things.

I went for a colour blocked look using strong ink colours and a patterned paper that almost reads as a solid. Well Worn Greetings is still one of my favourite stamp and die combos - I just love the patterns and distressed sentiments in this set!

I added a heart cut from the Notched Tag Die-namics and added some shine with a coating of Dimensional Magic. 

I made this card for my darling husband who has been so supportive and helpful while I've been feeling unwell.

The sentiment on the inside of this card was just perfect to thank him with! I've also added a heart shaped spiral clip to bring in the metallic accent from the front of the card.

Be sure to check out Kim's blog for all the designers playing along this week - you won't want to miss their gorgeous creations!

To play along with WSC, create a card with the provided sketch and upload it to SCS using the keyword MFTWSC50. A new sketch will be posted each Wednesday on the MFT blog. Each week one random winner will win a voucher to spend at MFT! We'll be chatting each week on the sketch thread, so come join us in the MFT forum!
