MFT September Release Countdown Day 1

It's the final countdown day before My Favorite Things September Release!
All new products will go on sale tomorrow, September 4th at 10AM EST!

The new Happy Birthday Script has made it to the top of my favorite birthday
sentiment Die-namics. The font, the size--I love it all. It makes for a quick card for 
both genders and takes center stage on a card.

I created an alcohol ink background with three colors of ink and flicked on alcohol
with a brush. The Happy Birthday sentiment was cut through the piece and backed
with tape. The sentiment was also cut from shiny gold card stock, then puzzle pieced
into the respective spaces. I trimmed the piece and adhered it to a kraft card base.

Not a fan of alcohol inks? Here's an ink distressed background.

A watercolor panel was ink distressed and spattered with water then trimmed with
the wonky stitched rectangle. Happy Birthday was cut through and backed with
adhesive tape. Happy Birthday was then cut from black card stock and placed in
the respective space on the panel.

The panel was then adhered to a Grout Gray card base and the sentiment was stamped
beneath it. Glittery stars were cut from the new Sunset Glitter card stock in matching
ink colors and adhered to the card.

Be sure to stop by today's final countdown post at My Favorite Things for more
peeks at the new release and leave a comment there for a chance to win a $75 prize.
Hope to see you tomorrow for the New Product Launch!
