Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge #42 & an HONOR

Happy Tuesday Everyone!  

It's time for another Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge ... and as always, the sketch was a real "challenge" and how much fun is that!  Don't forget ... if this appears too difficult for your style ... be sure to pop on over and check out their more "simplified" version of this sketch!
I have again used an adorable image from the Shabby chic papirskatter site for this creation.  I based my color scheme around this sweet hat and if you look closely the dress this little cutie has on is purple.   

Items used on this creation are as follows:

Stamps:  The Stamp Pad Co. sentiment
Papers:  SU Groovy Guava dp, Creative Memories Perfect Fit Purples dp, Very Vanilla
Accessories:  Wrights vintage lace, Prima flowers, Fiskars decal scissors, Hero Arts gems, Signo white pen, Darice lilac gingham ribbon
Technique:  faux stitching

Thanks for your visit!  I hope you enjoyed your visit!!

Edited to share with you the honor I received for my card from last week.  It was chosen as one of the  "Midnight Madness Remarkables"!  How cool is that!  I am so honored!!!

  11. Yeah..congrtulations on your award :) I won the honor of the Spotlight top 3..yeah for me too..I posted my logo on my art blog. Oh boy..I am nuts..I am working three blogs now..Darlene did you see my new store/blog?
    All new territory for me, but should be fun. Now to this fantastic vintage card...my fav style as you know. Those colors are awesome together..I would have never picked those, but you have worked magic with these colors, embellies and vintage print. Well done with the sketch. Oh I just wanted to let you know to mark your calendar for March 5th because that is when the Midnight Madness will be doing a huge giveaway. It will be a blog candy style with comment entries only. No card making on this one, but I really do not want our regular players to miss out on the opportunity to win. You will not be sorry you entered. As always, thank you so much for playing the Midnight Madness sketch challenges with us. We really love checking out all our entries work each week.
