Midnight Madness Sketch & Flutter By Wednesday Challenges



It's time for Week #3 of the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge over on "priscillastyles" blog! If you haven't check out this blog yet ... you really should ... there are AMAZING give aways and fun-filled sketches to work with!!! Don't forget to check out the design team samples ... inspirational to say the least!!




Today I decided to use a "garden" theme to my card. This PROPER young lady looks to be the type who would have a gorgeous rose garden in your back yard ... not that SHE would be the one tending to it mind you!! That would be the gardeners job of course!!! This lovely lady image is another one that comes from the Art Creations Friday website ... do check it out if you like vintage!!!



The musical panel was also located & printed from the internet. My background panel comes from the DCWV Garden Party 12x12 paper pack purchased from JoAnn's! Butterflies are from Martha Stewart, mauve satin ribbon from Darice and the metal ribbon brad is from The Paper Studio. I've used Fiskars decal scissors to border my image and pink pirouette matting, but left the basic black mat squared off. Basic black was also used to mat my musical panel.
I hope you enjoy my creations ... I know I sure enjoy making & sharing them!! Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you have a wonderful week!!! Happy Stamping!
Edit: I was also informed that my card qualifies for the Flutter By Wednesday challenge over on Danni's Dreams blog. Yippee ... another challenge to participate in!! Check it out!!
