MFT Teaser Time - Day 3

Hi all!  Welcome to MFT Teaser Time Day 3!  Today, we are featuring Complementary Greetings and Clearly Sentimental about Art.  For my first card, I've used one of the super cool sentiments from Complementary Greetings.  As soon as this card started taking a masculine turn, I knew I'd use it as my oldest son's birthday card because every teenage boy needs to know how amazing they are.   {He'll be 15 on Sunday - what tha?!?!  when did THAT happen?!?!}  I think it has a crisp modern feel and hopefully he won't mind the little plaid button and thread. ;)  The sketch is from the MFT guest designer challenge, which you can find out about HERE, except that I flipped it.  The stars are a combo of the Stacking Stars die-namics and the new Star Stax.  The sentiment was stamped in basic grey ink and cut out with one of the Traditional Tags Stax.  I used the negative from the Notched Border die-namic to add interest.  I also used the Notched Border die-namic to cut out some corrugated paper for the vertical strips.  


Here's a detail shot...  the dp is a mix of a few different companies.


And another detail shot...


And the inside...


For my second card, I used the Clearly Sentimental about Art.  I cut it out using one of the Designer Labels 2 STAX, then used that same label to cut out more of the same dp.
