Midnight Madness #21

It's Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge time once again and if you haven't checked out this website ... you are MISSING IT!!! They have SO MUCH going on over there ... take your time ... read through and JUMP in! There are PRIZES everywhere on this site ... not to even mention the fun in doing the awesome sketches from week to week!!! OKAY ... enough promotion (teehee ... I just love this site) .. on to today's card.

I purchased these Inkadinkado images while on my little weekend get away to North Carolina this past weekend and the sentiment is by Hero Arts. My papers are Bermuda Bay, Whisper White and DCWV designer paper. I've used the SU Bermuda Bay marker and Creative Memories Black fine tip marker for my faux stitching. The paper flower and butterfly are both Martha Stewart punches. The zig-zag stitched ribbon is by Darice.

I hope you will jump on over to the website and check out this challenge! Thanks for stopping by today and as always THANKS for any comments! I value your opinion on my work!!
