Entering the MFT Challenge with a Blinged Up Card!

Hello all! I'm going to enter the My Favorite Things Sketch Challenge, headed by Susan Opel. I only own one product from MFT (although that's about to change). I managed to work it into the card and (loosely) follow the sketch.

I blinged this baby up pretty good. First, I created a watercolor background and sprayed Ranger Perfect Pearls Mist all over it for a nice, sparkly sheen.

While the panel was drying. I worked on the clear zipper pouch. I die cut the Zipper from MFT and adhered it onto the acetate, cut away the part where the zipper was opened, and then sewed the acetate onto the card to create my zipper pouch.


I stamped the jewels in Distress Ink, watercolored them, and fussy cut them. Using my new awesome tweezers from EK Success I carefully inserted the sequins and jewels into the pouch and made them look like there were spilling out onto the card. I stamped the sentiment and die cut a tag around it.

I encourage you to check out the challenge here and enter for a chance to win a gift card to My Favorite Things.
