Ever get a new stamp set that you are itching to use so bad you make it fit into your next sketch challenge? That's how I felt about my new Flopsey set from MFT. I was determined to make it work with this week's Mojo Monday sketch challenge.
I love all the MFT stamps, but Flopsey is my favorite by far. I'm sure that I will own all the Flopsey sets they produce. Did you know about their bargin bin every Monday? That's how I'm expanding my collection of MFT stamp sets. Every Monday they have a number of sets for reduced prices. They have a great shipping rate of $2.50 which makes their stamps even more affordable and they always ship super fast.
Okay, back to my card:) I rarely do a card without a second background layer and even more rarely do I use white as my layer to mount on unless I've embossed it. I almost changed the background color to pink, but then decided to do a paper piercing along the top and sides and that seemed to work for me.
The DP is Pebbles Inc. the solid pieces are Bazzill. I paper pieced the bunny's hat and coveralls and the carrots in the wheel barrow. I do believe my Flopsey is a she and that is why her coveralls are so stylin' and her hat is pink:) I decided to substitue the sketch's bow for the MS fence border. The bunny was double stamped and then popped on dimensionals. I used the Cuttlebug dots folder to emboss the white background that Flopsey is on which was cut out with a Nestibabilities die. The circle and scallop were also cut out of Nestabilities. The little stick on icons are Heidi Grace. I also stamped, colored, cut out and popped those adorable little veggie stakes which are also in this MFT set. So there you have it...I used every stamp in the set to make this card including the cute sentiment. Hope you enjoy it.
Thanks to the great ladies at the Mojo blog for another terrific sketch! I enjoy participating every week, even if I don't get my card done until Saturday night:)
