Smart is the new PRETTY!!

Hi there and Happy World Card Making Day!  
It is a dark, rainy, windy day here so we have been inside! The kids made a tent in the living room and I got to make a card with some new My Favorite Things goodies! 

I used some new product as well as some older products (not really that old...only a few months!) 
I started with this weeks MFT sketch

And for the background I used the just released "Proof Positive" die and cut it in white and just layed a piece of teal card stock behind it. (It is showing blue in the pic but it is a beautiful teal color).  Then I cut some scallop circles using a dark pink and an orange (showing yellow in the pic) (sorry it is a dark day here lol!) anyway, I then cut some flowers using the "gerbera daisy" dies. I cut a stitched panel for the back of the sentiment piece using the horizontal stitched strips dies (one of my favs) and then used the technique of partial die cutting to make the piece shorter but still getting the stitched effect all the way around! (Yes, I was very proud of myself for that!) 
I embossed the glasses and the sentiment using versatile and clear embossing powder. The stamps are MFT "Geek is Chic" set, so cute!  My daughter just got glasses this year and she loves them so I thought this set was perfect! I cut around the glasses leaving a small white border and used glossy accents in the lens. I adhered the glasses and the sentiment using foam tape. 
And that sums up that card!  I am working on a few more cards, but it's dinner time here, so gotta run!
Have a great day!
