Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge

Here it is WEEK #2 of the new Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge. If you haven't checked out this blog yet ... be sure you do ... you don't want to miss this one! Not only are the sketches awesome layouts, but the giveaway is AMAZING!! You can either click on my link above ... or on the blinkie I have posted on my sidebar.



Here is this week's sketch and, I can truly say I had great fun creating this card!! It took me a while ... but it was fun and the type of card I have been wanting to create! Thanks MM ladies for the inspiration!!!




There is NO stamping on my card today. This card is all paper and lace effects. My main image is from a blog called Art Creations Friday . The images & backgrounds this lady offers for you to copy and print out are wonderful. If you like Vintage as I do, you have to pop over to this blog and check out her challenges.



My base card is ivory cardstock and the designer paper is from the Crafty Secrets Earthy pad. Although you can't see much of the background panel, the paper is 2-sided ... tablet paper & letters. My ABC's & 123's are from the Heartwarming Vintage (by Crafty Secrets) Altered booklet. My lacey panels are also made from the Crafty Secrets Earthy paper and was punched using the Martha Stewart doily lace punch. Both satin ribbons were purchased at Hobby Lobby. The actual lace side panel on my main image is by The Paper Studio and purchased at Hobby Lobby. I used Fiskars decal scissors to edge my main image and it's been popped up using ZOT 3D dots.



Thanks for stopping by today! The sun is shining here in NE Ohio and it looks like it's going to be a lovely day! I hope the sun is shining where you are today too!! Enjoy!!
