Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge #43

It's time for another Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge and even though they now offer a SNEAK PEEK on Friday (which I grab right away) ... I still don't seem to find the time to create a card until the day of the challenge!!  What's up with that!!  Darn housework!!  LOL!!

Anyways, today's sketch was another GREAT one!  I don't know who comes up with their sketch designs but they are ALWAYS so unique and challenging!!  Kuddo's to the designer(s)!!

Again I have turned to Art Creations Friday for my focus image!  I just can't get enough of these wonderful vintage images!  I used ZIG Photo Twin markers for a little touch of color on the lace of her dress and Ranger Antique Lace sponged gently around the outer edge.  

Recipe for this creation are as follows:
Papers:  Very Vanilla, Kraft cs, Blue Bayou, SU designer paper
Accessories:  Martha Stewart bird punch, Bazzill paper flower, American Craft glitter pen, ZIG photo twin markers, Nestabilities classic & scallop ovals, gold Pilot marker.
Thanks everyone!  The time you take to stop by means the world to me!!  Happy Day to you!
