My Favorite Things - Sketch Challenge 418

Hi Everyone! Happy 2019! I'm starting the new year off with some exciting news - I'm the featured designer for the weekly Sketch Challenge over on the My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration Blog.  I'll be sharing a project every Wednesday during the month of January.

For those of you that are new to the Sketch Challenge, it's a weekly challenge in which you can create and link up any project you make inspired from the sketch provided.  And the best part is you'll have a chance to win a $50 gift voucher to the MFT shop!

Here's the sketch for this week:

I have two cards to share that were inspired by the sketch.
I'll point out all the MFT products used and touch upon some specifics for each card. 

Both cards feature adorable little birds from the SY Tweet Friends stamp set

I drew inspiration from the nested panel part of the sketch.  I used the two largest dies in the Blueprints 33 Die-namics to create my nested panels.  For the birthday card, I did some partial die cutting to alter the original Blueprints 33 die cut shape to accommodate the images and sentiment.  

I made my own custom colored card stock for all the die cut elements.  I used white Bristol Smooth card stock and sponged on some Distress Oxide Ink.  The Distress colors I used are Bundled Sage, Tumbled Glass, and Spun Sugar. 

I used the You Trio Die-namics to die cut the "you".  For the first card I used the negative cut which serves as a design element and part of the sentiment.  Then I used the positive die cut letters on the second card.  

Instead of using a circle accent like in the original sketch, I opted for a heart shape.  
I used the smallest die in the Stitched Heart Stax Die-namics for this part.  

Thank you for stopping by today!  
Be sure to check out the MFT Challenge Blog for more inspiration from the design team using this week's sketch.
