Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge

This is my sketch for this weeks Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge...it is hard to believe it is week 10 already. I have taken part in every week and have loved it. For those of you who haven't been there yet - you had better check it out here. Not only are the sketches brilliant but they have the most amazing monthly prizes too PLUS Priscilla Styles has Candy and it is ... A BIG SHOT - yes you ready it right ...a BIG SHOT - you don't have to have played or be a follower to enter for the Candy either...it is open to everyone!!

This gorgeous image is actually DP which was given to me by my good friend Melinda (aka Melinda80), as soon as she saw it, she knew I would love it...and she was right. Instantly I knew it would be for the MMSC. The Embossed paper is from a chocolate box, hasn't it come out great....and this qualifies it for the 2RedBananas Challenge for this week which is all about reusing and recycling! I have also squeezed it into the Our Creative Corner Challenge which is all about Triple Play - use 3 different types of embellishments!

I have lightly coloured the image with chalks, just to add a hint of colour and some depth, I also wanted to tie in the fringing, which I picked up in a bargain bin at our local Craft Store, 'Scraps'n things' when I first started stamping! I used the photo corners that came in a RAK from one of my Twisted Sisters, Pat Smethers and added a specialist cameo button that was given to me, among many other goodies in a RAK from another dear friend Pam (aka pam124) Black brads finished it off nicely!!

I love the vintage/nostalgic feel to this card and those ladies are gorgeous - I am sure they are NOT off to a Stamping Up Workshop - LOL, well not one that I have been to anyway...imagine inky fingers all over those clothes!!

Thank you for dropping in, I appreciate each comment that is made and love to know when you have been. This blogging journey is just such a pleasure - those who know me laugh and say it is because they say I am a 'talker!' What is with that!?!? LOL! I love people and getting to know them - and that is what this journey has been all about. I am so glad you have taken the time to join me along the way!! I hope you are having a great weekend - mine has been so relaxed, my kids start back at school tomorrow after a 3 week break - imagine trying to get back into routine tomorrow morning.....ahhh!!! God bless you!
