{MFTWSC89} I Salute You

Hey there! I am so excited to share my big news with you all! I won this months Guest Designer spot over at My Favorite Things (remember the chocolate bar card? That's the one:)!!! That means that I not only will recieve a HUGE and very generous prize package (who doesn't love that??) but I also get to design for the whole month with some of the most talented designers in the bizz. That includes every Wednesday's Sketch Challenge!

This week, in honor of the 11th Anniversary of 9/11 yesterday, I decided to pull out one of my uninked little PI's, Soldier Girl. So thankful for all the great men and women who sacrifice so much for their country.

I have the little fireman boy, but the hubs is bugging me to get going- we have lots to do today in town....I wanted to make another card with the same sketch with that little guy to honor all of the firemen who bravely risked, and many unfortunately lost, their lives that September day in New York.

Here is the fabulous sketch:

 
And here is my card, using Pure Innocence Soldier Girl. I added some dienamics: fancy flourish, stacking stars, and fishtail flags stax.
 
 
I used products from the Ribbon Carousel: 1.5" red/ivory striped grosgrain, and champagne net ribbon over top to make the red a bit more subtle in colour....
 
 
Check out the MFT blog for details on how you can play with us this week, and links to all of the designers participating:)

You go girl... there is a lot of heavy competition for that MFT guest designer. Congratulations. I love that you colored on your patterned paper. I never would have thought to do that, but it really adds a lot to her dress and hat. Very creative.
