Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge #67

WOW what a busy week!!!  Yikes!!  Well I might be late, but I wasn't about to miss this week's Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge!  Oh, Oh, Oh ... did you see I won a "Remarkables Award" for last weeks entry???  How cool is that!!

This week's sketch is another beauty!!  And I went with the "fancy" version!  My beautiful digi image is from my Scottish friend, Teri Sherman (Delicious Doodles) and I think red is the perfect color to go with Black/White!  What do you think??
 (click image to enlarge)
 I was watching my favorite dancing show (So You Think You Can Dance) that I had DVR'd when I was thinking about creating this card and they were doing the "waltz" ... hence my main image choice!!  

The designer paper is from the DCWV LeCreme and the right side panel is flocked which really adds a nice dimension to this card.  I have used gold Stickles to border the entire card as well as adding Stickles to the center of the ribbon slide. (see closeup)

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  It has been a GREAT crafting day for me!  Three of my cousins and two of their friends came up today for a card class and we had an AWESOME time!!  They really enjoyed learning and I really enjoyed the lunch they brought with them!  Homemade Stuffed Pepper soup (peppers from the garden), homemade tuna salad, homemade cheese-beer bread along with several other types of bread, fresh fruit, garden tomatoes!  WOW what a spread ... perfect payment in my mind!!  LOL!!
Please stop back later when I will have my Crafty Secrets creation to share with you!  Challenge this week ... "brown bag" ... hmmmmm!

Hugs to you all,
