MFT Cuttlebug Challenge & SCS too :o)

You won't believe it. None of my usual blither blather blabbin!
(well a teensy bit, hehehe)

This is for the latest Cuttlebug Challenge: MFT ! It was the first time I'd ever
used My Favorite Things stamps (well, used their digis that is.) Love em.

The roundness was inspired by another challenge: the latest Splitcoaststampers fan club interactive challenge--round inspiration. (I noticed I needed to renew my SCS membership, & lo and behold, they had a rockin' challenge!) :o)

The digital MFT image is printed & embossed on paper
that had matte medium wiped on it with a paper towel-fast!
It makes the sky really easy to blend with Copics.
The dresses are paper pieced on black & white paper that's
been coloured with Copic markers.

The flowers were punched & then I glued beads on 'em.

...and that's all she wrote...

...BUT...I also want to thank you for being so danged kind! Just when I'm feeling like a card is meh, or I've mangled my mojo--you perfectly fab peeps say some too-lovely things and make me all happy inside! Thank You from the very very bottom of my happy lil' heart!
