Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge #38

Time for another Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge and as always ... this sketch made me THINK!!! One nice thing MM is doing now is posting a "sneak peek" on Friday for the upcoming Tuesday challenge. Like I said ... these sketches make me THINK and this sneak peek gives me more time to do just that!!!

I have used various K&Company Ancestry designer paper along with SU Blue Bayou & Close to Cocoa cardstock. The image is from the internet and I have used Nestabilities classic & scallop ovals for this focus image.

(click image for a larger view)

The Prima flowers are ivory and I have distressed them a bit with Ranger Vintage Photo ink & a sponge. My pearl brads in the corner are also K&Company.

Thanks so much for stopping by today ... I'll be back with my creation for today's Crafty Secrets Forum Challenge over on SCS later today. Have a great day and be careful out there ... in those areas that just received more snow (like us here in NE Ohio).

Beautiful card, Darlene -- you really know how to make vintage shine! I've never thought to distress primas, but it really gives them an antique vs. cutesy feel, perfect for the theme!!
