Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge #56

It's time for another MIDNIGHT MADNESS SKETCH CHALLENGE and here are the two sketch choices you have to choose from this week:



Again this week, I have picked "somewhere in between" these two options.  With using the image I wanted to use for my focus, I didn't have room for the little ribbon tags so I did "MY VERSION" and am really happy with the outcome. 

Before I show you today's card creation, I would like to thank all of those followers/friends who voted for me last week in the "Priscilla Award" competition!  I didn't win (boohoo!) but that's okay ... I was in the running with some VERY TALENTED ladies and was just honored to be in the top 20!!  I can't tell you how much I appreciate you taking the time to vote for me ... it truly warms my heart!  THANKS!!

OKAY ... now on to today's card.  

While at the workshop in Indiana last month at my friend, Joan Fricker's, I purchased this lovely JustRite set called "Plant a Little Love" and finally decided to get it opened & inked up!!  Tho it's a bit difficult to see in my photo, I have stamped the image several times, colored the flowers and popped them up ... it looks really nice IRL!!

Hope you like my creations today!  Now I really must get outdoors and plant some of my flowers before the rains come again! Going to be a "wet" week by what the weather people show but I will try to get something accomplished in between the raindrops.  Happy Day to you all!

  3. Darlene, you did a spectacular job with your MM creation this week. I LOVE the JustRite sets and you have certainly done it justice. Your popped up flowers are BEAUTIFUL!! Wish I could see it IRL, but from the photo, it really does look spectacular! I love how you did a blend of the 2 versions. If you're like me, you end up running out of room and, I agree, that image needed to be focused on. Thanks for playing the MM challenge this week and hope to see you again next week!
