Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge #72

It's time again for another AMAZING sketch over at Midnight Madness.  It's always a thrill from week to week to check out the "sneak peek" then if you have the time you can get a "head-start" on the next week's challenge. What a fabulous idea!!

Today I have used Priscillastyles beautiful butterfly digi for my focus image.  This beautiful image is one of my very favorite images of Priscilla's!  It is so much fun to color and can be used for just about ANY occasion!  For this creation I've used  Twinkling H20 to color, then covered with Crystal Effects.

The green silk vine ribbon was an RAK and worked perfectly for this layout.  The beautiful flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and purchased through my friend Joan at Joan's Gardens.  I added a touch of Diamond Stickles here & there just to add that special sparkle.  Hope you are inspired by my creation and join in the fun at Midnight Madness this week ... be sure to check out the DT creations ... they are ALWAYS JAW DROPPIN' AMAZING!!!

I'm also entering this creation into the following challenges:
Aly's Sunday Challenge - Sparkle & Glitter
Paper Sundaes: Fabulous Fall - use fall or Halloween colors
Sundays with Crissy - Sparkle & Shine
Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge -  Anything Goes
Stamp Something - September Digi Days 
Cute Card Thursday - Tweet & a Flutter

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  It's going to be hot & humid today with a rain storm coming in for tomorrow!  Sounds like a good time to head to the "crafting cave" ... catch you all later!
Hugs . . .
