MFT Challenge

Greetings my pets.....are you having a good weekend? I am!! On Friday night I had a stamp class at my house with 16 ladies stamping up a frenzy!!! We made 4 cute cards (I'll post them tomorrow) and I think (?) everyone had a good time! There were a few of my usual girls and a few new ones, so it was nice to see both old and new faces! Thanks to everyone that came:) I also had a garage sale and sold lots of stamp sets, paper, punches, etc. So I had some money in my pocket that I couldn't wait to put to use! Saturday I hung out with the fam, finished making this card (scroll down) and then went into town for the LSS's customer appreciation night. There were lots of good sales, munchies, a nice make n take, and I even won a prize;) I bought some new sweet stamps, the new cosmo cricket 'wanted' paper (De-Lish!!!!) anf some new nesties...can't wait to try them out on a card or two! Today we are taking the boys to the calgary zoo to get in a family day before dad heads off to work for 3 weeks:(
Okay- this challenge was MFT's wednesday stamp club challenge to use dies and mft stamps to create a scene. Immediately I knew that I wanted to create an outdoor scene using 'Tea Party'. This was so much fun!! I loved this challenge! Here is the final product:

 I used various MFT dies to create the sun, clouds, 'rolling hills', grass, and an SU punch to make the 'sign' arrow. I paper-peiced the girl and table and cut out the sweets and teapot and cup. I wanted this little munchkin dressed in her finest tea party clothes, so I added lots of stickles and crystal effects to spiff up her outfit;) I used little pearl adhesives on her shoe buckle and her earrings. There is lots of detail in this card..inking edges, sewing, pop-up, a felt cloud (I even put extra felt underneath to give it a puffier look). The sun and cloud both have stickles as well. The cupcakes have CE added to the cherries and stickles on the icing. I coloured the tea pot, cup and cupcake stand with a clear spica glitter pen to give it a lovely silver look ( you have to use your best at a tea party!) I used 2 different holepunches to give the tablecloth a lacey-type look. The tree is a diecut from the dp package.
I love the way this card turned out!!!!
