MFT Sketch #523

 While it may be snowing is possible to have a little bit of Springtime in my craft room! These fun prints are from the Happiness Live Here Collection. They were the perfect mix for the sketch challenge at MFT-

This sketch design is super simple.  My overall card size is 4 1/4 x 5 1/2". I cut my pattern paper blocks at 1 1/2" x 2 1/2" and 1 1/2" x 1 1/2".  The pop of color from the pattern papers, really makes the card stand out.  I paired the Happiness Lives Here Collection with the January Stamp of the Month, Every Thank You. I popped up my sentiment banner with 3-D foam tape for added dimension.

You can add this great set to your collection for only $5 with a qualifying purchase or free with a VIP membership.  This set is only available to purchase during the month of January.  You can see all the details here
