MFT October Creative Challenge ~ Be Negative!

Hi there!  It's time for the MFT Design Team Creative Challenge for October!  This month's challenge was truly a challenge for me!!  HA!  But before I get to my card, here is a little info on today's challenge:

In 2011, MFT is working harder than ever to inspire you, and we have come up with something we think you'll really enjoy. Our Design Team Creative Challenge is a new monthly feature, where we challenge our design team to explore their creative side using a specific theme, product or technique. This month, we're going to "be negative."   Our designers will show you what you can do with the negative space after you cut out your Die-namics, or the other half of patterned paper, cardstock or felt that is leftover when you're done with your Die-namics! Visit Kim's Blog to see exactly what we've been up to, you'll find a full list of designers that have taken up the challenge!

Thankful For You:


For my card I used one of the newest à la modes: Sweetest Pumpkin in the Patch.  She was colored with Copics.  See the scalloped frame surrounding her?  That's where the challenge came in!  I cut out an Oval Decorative Doily from the patterned paper and used the negative to frame the à la mode.  I saved the Oval Decorative Doily that I cut out for another project.  Fun!  The flowers were made with the Prima Donna Die-namics.  A sentiment flag, cut using the First Place Award Winning Ribbon die and some machine stitching finish the card!





Thanks for stopping by!
