MFTWSC83 {a funky tree}

I interrupt my Day 1 of Teaser Time with MFT, to bring you this week's Wed. Stamp Club card. Please scroll down to see a sample of the new Lisa Johnson stamp set and this month's WTG.  

I admit, this card is a bit out of my comfort zone. I fell in love with these papers when I saw them at my local scrapbook store last week. They are by American Crafts-Sketchbook by Amy Tangerine. They are bright, and funky and sooo, so fun! I am usually an earthy tone, kraft lovin' kind of girl.  I don't know why I was drawn to them, but I was and so I am using them! 

After Melody used this tree on a sample from my DTGD challenge (check out the fan club over on SCS), I was inspired to use it. Plus the leaf print in this paper, reminded me of it, too. It's a fun Die-namics-Tear Drop Tree

I added stitching to the tree top, giving it a break for my sentiment.  That is from the SAY WHAT STAMP SET.  Love the bold, single words included in this set. Don't forget to check out the cool woodgrain detail on the tree trunk. It's there, it's just hard to see with the pink printed paper. 

I used the trendy and oh-co-cool CHEVRON STRIPES. Some stitching and a gorgeous GUMDROP GREEN button.....hip hip hooray for a true GREEN button! The twine can also be found in the MFT Boutique, along with the Black and Gumdrop Green card stock. It's a one stop shop!

Here is this week's sketch! I love a great circle element, and I know you'll have lots of ways to fill it up cute!  Seems I can't make a card lately with out my CIRCLE STAX 1 & 2 DIE-NAMICS. 

Come play along for a chance at a chance to win an MFT gift voucher! 

Stop on by Kim's blog for the line up for this week's sketch inspiration!
