MFTWSC291 Cowgirl Card

I've made a few quick cards in the last few weeks, but haven't had time to post. Finally playing along with MFT sketch challenge this week. It's based on MFTWSC291
Handmade card using My Favorite Things Pure Innocence Cowgirl and PTI edge die
The little cowgirl has a paper pierced dress and is colored with Copics. The rest of the card is pretty straightforward. The background is embossed and the bottom edge of the card is die cut. Thanks for looking. 

  • Stamps: MFT Pure Innocence Cowgirl
  • Tools: Cuttlebug Swiss Dot embossing folder, PTI Edgers #3 Scallop Die, Spellbinder scallop rectangle

Chevron Birthday CAS Card

Playing along with CASology Chevron challenge today.This is a single layer card with a side cut-out and flowers peeking out from the inside of the card. I sponged the chevron background with MFT Lemon Drop ink and stamped flowers and sentiment with SU Melon Mambo for a bright summer combo.

Red White and Blue Ironman Card

Last month I posted the first Ironman card that I made for friends who will be doing a 140.6 mile triathlon race in Chattanooga. Here's another good luck card. The red, white and blue colors were part of the Simon Says Monday Challenge and are very fitting for the 4th of July week.
Red white and blue US map card; good luck 140.6 triathlon race

Again, since I struggled to find triathlon specific stamps, I was trying to find other stamps that could work.  Here I used the US map from Lawn Fawn Wish You Were Here and colored Tennessee in red since that's where the race is. The "Good Luck" sentiment is from Papertray Ink These United States and die cut numbers are from PTI as well.

Thanks for looking and I'd love to hear your ideas on what stamps can be used for athletic inspired cards.
