MFT Stamps {Colour & Sketch Challenges}

Saturday! Hooray! I am getting my craft ON this weekend and having some fun! The past two weekends have been report card writing but this weekend is all about PLAYING with my crafty toys! I am ready for a break and looking forward to a nice long walk tomorrow too! 



I was intrigued by simple sketch over at My Favorite Things and then I saw their Colour Combo challenge! Well...I do not have the exact colours so I went into my stash and tried to match them as well as I could! I used some Crumb Cake, Pale Plum, Coastal Cabana and Pear Pizzazz with White. Oh how I wish I had some stitched circles! On my wishlist! But I do have the Flag Stax and I LOVE them! I stamped an old Stampin' Up sentiment I found in my stash. I loved the clean look of the font. I hope you do too!

{Supplies Used}
Stamps: Retired Stampin' Up
Inks: Black
Papers: SU! Coastal Cabana, Pear Pizzazz, Pale Plum, Crumb Cake, Whisper White
Extras: MFT Rose Die, Bird Punch (SU!), Flag Staxx (MFT), Embossing Folder (SU!)

Last time I used the MFT Rolled Roses I had a few questions about how I roll my roses. I use tweezers and hold on tight! At the end of winding them, I use a small glue dot to secure the rose.
