Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge #30

WOW ... I can't believe Midnight Madness is already up to #30 ... and they are ALL very unique and make you think outside the box. LOVE this challenge ... if you haven't tried it ... now's a good time to start!!

Check out this week's Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge. It's a wonderful layout and this week they've added a "theme" to the challenge for a fun twist!! The theme is "wings & things" ... anything that can fly! I've chosen ANGELS. This image is from and my sentiment stamp is from Retro Lunchbox. I've used gold Stickles and Stampendous gold diamond dots for my sparkle element. The snowflake is from the Martha Stewart snowflake punch and the background oval and circle were created using Nestabilities. My background paper is from a DCWV 12x12 pack and the base card is Whisper White.
Thanks for stopping by today! Hope you are having a wonderful week so far!! I'm very busy but that's okay ... keeps me out of trouble! (yeah, right!!) Happy Day All!!
