You Tickle My Fancy - MFT Sketch Challenge

I managed to make five cards this weekend and this card for the My Favorite Things Sketch Challenge is one of them. This card usesMFT stamps and dies, and a fun, stencil too. Whenever I'm creating a card, even when it's for a challenge I've always got OWH in mind too. In this case I was aiming for a masculine 'love theme' and I think that this could definitely be sent from a female hero to as sweetheart or husband back home.

Here's the sketch, which is a square so I took a cue from Barb Anders sample card (MFT has a DT that does such fabulous work, all the time) and reworked it into a standard 4.25 x 5.5 size so that it would be better suited to OWH needs.

I've only used this stencil a couple of times since I got it but I love the effect. It's the only stencil I own but I would definitely consider getting a few more but I need to figure out a way to keep them in mind so that they get used more often.

Happy Crafting!

That stenciled background looks fabulous, and so do those feathers! I especially like that super thick twine tying it all together! Neat card!
