MFT Blueprints and Plaid

Hi everyone!

I'm back today with a card for this week's MFT Sketch Challenge.  I went wild with my Blueprints DieNamics and scraps of DP for this narrow card, and, oh, how fun it was!! :)

First I cut a piece of white cardstock to 6x6" and folded it in half to make a longish card. My pink piece wasn't quite long enough, so I trimmed down the card to work with it.  I'm thinking the card base ended up being about 5.75" when I was done.

I used Blueprints 1 to cut the two strips of faux-stitched designer paper, and then I used Blueprints 4 to cut a little scalloped edging from white cardstock for one of them.  The white layer is actually a tag from Blueprints 6, and I stamped the plaid pattern with three different MFT inks... Red Hot, Kraft and BubbleGum... using the journaling lines from the "DC Tag, You're It" set.  LOVE!!!  The cute little kraft sentiment strip is from Blueprints 2 and stamped with a greeting from "Pretty Poppies" and the flower is cut with dies from Blueprints 5.  Now if I could have only gotten something from Blueprints 3 on there I would have used them all! :)

I really, really love the Blueprints for doing sketch challenges.  There are so many options that work perfectly!  Thanks, MFT, for making stamping easy!!
