More Midnight Madness

It is Sunday afternoon here and raining - cardmaking weather if you ask me!!! Mind you any weather is cardmaking weather for me! I actually made this card last night and only had the brads and the sentiment to add...but was exhausted so packed up and went to bed 2 hours earlier than normal - unheard of in our house....I was packed up, cleaned up and tucked up in bed by 10:30pm...one early night!!! So this afternoon I have added the finishing touches and on this card and also a scrapbook page that I will upload shortly - just have to find the right lighting for photographing!

This is week 6 for the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge and I just love their sketches, they always have something different about them and usually they make me think! They are out Tuesdays but I usually wait until the weekend so that I have thought about what I am doing and also I don't have to rush it! This week I have used an image I got the BLOG CANDY that I won from Kimmie - I love these Whiff of Joy images and have only got this one...so I wanted to make sure I used it well!!! Oh, and before I get onto the business side of this card - I have to tell you...when I clicked onto the MMSC I got such a surprise to see that I had won the weekly incentive - HOW COOL IS THAT!!! It made my day - so thank you Priscilla and the ladies....one happy stamper here!! LOL!

I coloured the image with chalks and then paper pierced around the edges and layered in onto black CS. The DP was also layered onto black CS as was each strip of ribbon. I felt that as I had used very bold DP the ribbon and ric rac would be lost if I used it straight onto the DP. At first I wasn't sure what to do for the ribbon but this ric rac seems to work well, especially on the black. I used black brads as using coloured ones would have been too 'leary'....The sentiment was embossed and lightly sponged with blue, so light you can hardly see it in the photo, but it does soften the look IRL. I then added layered photo corners and a brad to the top right corner of the image, completing the Sketch Challenge!

Now, I have to say...don't be fooled by the look of this card...it is a bit more clean lined that I normally do BUT it sure was a fiddly little thing to make...especially layering the ribbon and then weaving it! But I am happy with the end result! Now if you haven't been over and seen the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge - you NEED to go!! Not only is it a great challenge but they are giving away monthly CASH PRIZES and a weekly incentive (Yahoo!!) Don't miss out...you'll be sorry!!
