Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge #97

It's time once again for another Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge!  Can you believe we are almost to Number 100 ... WOW!  Today's sketches (fancy & cas) can be used in so many ways ... I chose to create somewhere in between the Fancy & the CAS ... (imagine that! ... LOL)  
I just learned how to make these awesome flowers using Sakaras Punches (purchased at Joan's Gardens) and wanted to use them here.  The leaves are created using a Sizzix die and I've curled them around a pair of tweezers for added dimension.  The designer paper I chose is from My Mind's Eye (Stella Rose) and the image was coloring with Sugarloaf Whisper Strokes markers.
(click on image to enlarge)
For the life of me I can't remember where this image is from ... I'm thinking Nicecrane Design but not sure ... sorry ... brain's not working today!  Either way, her pose is certainly one of 'thinking' so I thought the little AMuse sentiment was perfect in the corner.

Thanks so much for stopping by today and please be sure to pop over to the Challenge Blog and check out the DT's amazing creations!  What an inspirational group of designers!!  

Other challenges:
Party Time Tuesday - Anything goes & homemade flower(s)

Happy Crafting!

I haven't had time to look to see if you already entered but if not Party Time Tuesdays this week is anything goes as long as it has handmade flowers on it. Hope all is well with you!
