MFTWSC97-Love hearing from You

Welcome back.  It's a two-post Wednesday. I am taking a break from the November Teasers to share a non-teaser card for this week's Wednesday Stamp Club.  I needed to take a break from holiday stuff. So I went Shabby Chic with this week's card. I have been doing some reorganizing of my stamps and I have had fun re-discovering some older BUT still spectacular MFT stamps and Die-namics

I used WELL WORN GREETINGS  today (all links can be found below, too). I was going for a bit of the shabby chic look. The papers are from Crate Paper, called On Trend. That diagonal stripe pattern sucked me in. I love mixing this bold, graphic with the pretty, soft patterns. 

 I cut the oval with the matching oval Die-namcis,  included with this set, Well Worn Greetings. The Fishtail banner was made by layering up the original FISHTAIL FLAGS STAX and the newer, FISHTAIL FLAGS LAYERS STAX DIE-NAMICS. A serious MUST HAVE!!!

In place of the tab element from the sketch, I added a heart from HOMESPUN BIRDHOUSE, topped with a LEMON DROP BUTTON (tied up with the yummy MFT TWINE!!! LOVe that stuff!). 

I distressed the edges of my paper and sponged them all with a bit of Antique Linen Distress ink.  Card stock is MFT Whip Cream and Steel Grey

Here is the sketch to work with this week. Love a great fishtail banner! Can't wait to see what you do with it.
