Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge #98

This weeks sketch...it's "YOUR PICK" Make it fancy, clean and simple, or somewhere in-between.
Hello Everyone and welcome to another Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge!  As you know, I am part of the "priscillastyles" design team (and very proud of that fact) and today we have NEW MEMBERS starting and anxious to share their creativity with you!  SO ... please be sure to pop on over to the Midnight Madness Challenge and below the challenge posting you will find additional creations from BOTH of Priscilla's Design Teams.  


Here is my creation for today . . .

I just love the vintage feel of Priscilla's 'Wash Basin Water Pitcher' digi image (found HERE) so that was my choice for this fun sketch.  Again I chose to make 'homemade' flowers, but this time they are made from vellum.  I learned the technique from my friend Selma Stevenson and you can click HERE to see how it's done.

Papers:  Groovy Guava SU CS, White CS, Black CS, Bo Bunny 'Gabrielle Collection' DP, Apricot Vellum, Team CS, Old Olive SU CS
Accessories:  Prismacolor markers, Martha Stewart Lacy Butterfly Punch, Sizzix Leaf die, SU doily border punch, Martha Stewart flower punches,
Techniques:  Faux Stitching, Homemade Flowers,

I look forward to seeing YOUR creation using one (or both) of these wonderful sketches!  Thanks so much for stopping by today and if you've taken the time to comment on my creation, an EXTRA THANKS ... your comments mean so much to me!

Your gorgeous card makes me think of spring, Darlene! Dare we hope that it may be here to stay? I don't mind the rain, as long as temp is warm. The kiddos get a bit stir crazy, though.
