It’s Kinda Sketchy Around Here!

Hey it’s Wednesday!  Today’s the day for a new challenge over at StampNation PLUS a new card sketch for Splitcoaststampers!

So today I actually have two sketches to share because at SN, we’ve partnered up with the amazing stamp and die company, My Favorite Things (MFT)!  And I have to say, MFT makes the most amazing quality stamps and the coolest dies!  They are one of my top 3 favorite stamps companies in the business!  For today's challenge and its details, visit here.

So the Dream Team all get to create with this cute little MFT sketch this week and feature all kinds of cool MFT products too!

For my sketch card today, I wanted a happy, beachy birthday card so I started with the new “Penguins in Paradise” by Birdie Brown.  So cute isn’t he?!?

Here’s a quick close up of the card.  I used a lot of fun glazes and glitters to add some shimmer to my birthday card creation.

My fellow Dream Team member, Heather North is also sharing some fun MFT card creations as well today.  Make sure to check out her blog today right HERE for more awesome MFT inspiration!

And finally, here is my sketch for today’s Splitcoast Card Sketch this week.  I wanted a sketch with a subtle type back ground that featured some kind of large greeting. 
I sure hope you’ll come and play along with both sketches today! Happy creating!

Your little tropical penguin is so cute! Love the little bits of sparkle you've added, Ally. MFT is one of my top 5 favorite stamp companies too. Thanks for linking to my blog.

Such a sweet take on this sketch! Love the penguin of course and the sky you created and also those great sparkly accents on the polka dot frame. So glad you played along at MFT!
