Midnight Madness & Stamp Simply

Hello again ... my second posting this morning is for the MIDNIGHT MADNESS SKETCH Challenge #41 and Sharon Johnson's STAMP SIMPLY Purple & Green challenge.

(click on image for larger view)

I chose another Art Creations Friday image to use as my focus and DCWV designer papers.  I have stamped a scroll image using Versamark over the Old Olive base card before adding the purple designer paper panels.  Prima flowers, Kaiser half pearls and Martha Stewart branches embellish this creation as well as white Signo dots around the edges.  I needed a birthday card so I decided to add this color coordinated sentiment panel which was also embellished with a Michael's gem and Martha Stewart branches.

Thanks for your visit!  It's still snowing so I'm headed back to the Crafting Cave to work on my Crafty Secrets Challenge creation.  I'll be back later to share it with you!!  Happy Stamping!!
