Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge

If you haven't already gathered I am a BIG fan of the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge and have been from before it started....each week I 'brace' myself for their challenge as they are more complex than the basic challenge....I actually have to think with these ones! Not only is this a great Challenge but the Design Team are so friendly and encouraging and the prizes and amazing - you can check it out here!

My card started with running some DP from a scrapbooking magazine through the Cuttlebug with a Fiskars Textured Plate....this gave the DP so much texture, infact IRL it has a canvas look. I used embossed card, Argyle Folder (thanks Melinda80) for the half circle and the torn corners. The tape measure is Basic Grey paper (thanks Hannah aka bubblefrog), cut and backed with back CS. I used a retired SU set that has been lent to me (again) from my Su Demo and friend Ann, so I you can see ' I get by with a little help from my friends!' But honestly, it is impossible though to own everything, so we all try and buy things the others don't have - unless it is something we LOVE and HAVE TO HAVE!!!

I chalked the image, highlighting with a blender pen and the chalks and then added Kindy Glitz for a final touch on the wings, I only used a touch, just to make them a bit more life like!! The Brass embellishments are off candles...I put them away a long time ago...just incase!!

I usually don't do my card for this challenge until the weekend, so I have time to think about that I am doing - but this time I knew what stamp I wanted to use...so it grew from there - a pretty 'painless' process this time! LOL!

Thank you for stopping by and please don't forget to leave a comment - that way I know when you have visited!! It is 1:35am here and I an about to finish for the night....hope you are having a great day!! God bless you!!
