This is another MFT set that I totally love. It was a little bit of a pain to paper-piece b/c of her hands that are on the present. So I had to stamp her hands on plain white paper, color them in, cut them out, and then glue the tiny hands on the present. But it was well worth the effort b/c if you can't see her hands, then it just looks like a walking present.
I'm on a Cosmo Cricket design paper kick, can you tell? I looove it. It forces me to use color combinations that I don't normally go for. I'm more into pink/green or blue/brown, so this stoplight color palette is quite unusual for me. But I'm diggin' it...

This card is loosely based on last week's TCP Tuesday sketch...
When I first "finished" the card, it didn't have the flower accent in the bottom right-hand corner. I thought and thought and was like, geez, it's missing something. Pondering it to Jamie, I told her it would be perfect if it had some sort of felt or Prima flower accent. "Why don't you just punch one out?" O, wise Jammy, you saved my card! hehe... I still think it would've looked better with a felt or Prima flower, but when you lack such specific items, you gotta just fall back on ol' reliable punches.
