Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge and Whoo! Hoo! I have EXCITING NEWS!!!

Did you happen to notice the new badge on my sidebar???  No, you say ... well it looks like this ...

Yep, that's right  ...  I am now a designer for the "priscillastyles" Store and I am SO EXCITED about this adventure!  If you're not familiar with Priscilla's digi images or her creative work's of art, you really MUST check it out!!

Speaking of Priscilla, for today's Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge, I have used an image from Priscilla's "Rose Corset Set".   This card was SO MUCH FUN to create and I'm very happy with the outcome!  I've used Prismacolor markers for my coloring and actually cut the image apart with a craft knife then laid it out atop a gold lamay panel.
(click image to enlarge)
My corner flowers are from Wild Orchid and I've also added Crystal Effects to the flowers that are a part of the image.

If you've never played this challenge, you are missing an amazing group of very talented ladies who have inspired me from week to week with their unique sketches & creations!!  Be sure to check out Midnight Madness and please be sure to check out what Priscilla has to offer at  "priscillastyles" Store!  You will be so glad you took the time!!

Other challenges this creation fits are:
Donnas Den of Crafts - lots of layers
Kaboodle Doodles Challenge - lovely flowers & lace
Papers, Scissors, Rocks - "non-stamped" flower on your creation
Stamp with Fun - card for a girl
Stamp Something - digi stamp

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I'm preparing to leave on Wednesday morning to attend at workshop at Joan's Gardens in Indiana so I'd better get packing!!  Clothes ... no problem ... what crafting supplies to take with me ... Uuugh ... how much can I fit in my car??  LOL!!
