Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge

There's a NEW sketch challenge and it was launched yesterday on the "priscillastyles" blog.

You can click on the MIDNIGHT MADNESS blinkie on the sidebar to pop over and check out the AWESOME giveaways for those who participate! You will be AMAZED!! Don't forget to check out the sample card provided by the design team ... they are fantastic!!

I've taken a few "liberties" on my card (it's allowed). One is turning the corner treatments and secondly, using a long rectangle behind my main image vs another oval.

My card is of A-6 size (9 1/4 x 6 1/4 folded in half). My matting is all of Hunter Green cardstock and the 12x12 sheet of designer paper had no markings so I'm sorry but I don't know who the maker is. My main image tulips is a 3D precut punchout by Stanzbogen. The oval panel the tulips are mounted on was Whisper White which after cutting with Nestabilities oval diecut, was sponged using More Mustard ink before removing from the die. I've used a white Gelly Roll pen for the dots on the scalloped mat.

My butterfly is actually a PSX Rub On Transfer which I have scanned and printed before cutting with a swivel craft knife and mounted using dimensional tape. The sentiment is by The Stamp Pad Co, was stamped using Versafine Black and clear embossed. Pearl embellishments are by Mark Richards and the glitter used on the butterfly is by PKGlitz.

This was a fun sketch and really made me think ...
I guess that's why they call it a "CHALLENGE", lol!! Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by today!
