It's MIDNIGHT MADNESS time again ...

I was thrilled to see that this week's Midnight Madness #12 Sketch Challenge required a tag! I purchased a pack of 7Gypsies Vintages tags months ago at Archiver's and finally found the opportunity to use one ... Yippee!!





This card is a bit "BUSY" but I still like it!! Another requirement (I think??) was to do some stitching along the left side of your tag. This too gave me an opportunity to use something that's been hanging on my supply board for months also ... and that is my Bazzill - In Stitches Floss which I purchased from my friend Tammy Hershberger (Stamp Happy) at Toyrifix.






Here are all the deets on this card:


Stamps: Rubber Stampede (butterfly), Wordsworth (sentiment)

Papers: Very Vanilla, Anna Griffin dp, Daisy Bucket design dp

Inks: Versafine black

Accessories: Bazzill In Stitches floss, Martha Stewart Arch Lattice border punch, 7Gypsies vintage tag, SU photo corner punch, American Crafts glitter pens, swivel craft knife, detail clear ep, Prima flowers, Offray grosgrain ribbon, Michael's satin ribbon, Bucket O'Buttons





Thanks for all your support ... hope you're having a wonderful day!!
