MMSC43 'In Style' Priscilla Styles' That is.....

Hello everyone, I hope you are having a great week - it is about to get better because it is....Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge time.  We are really enjoying seeing all of your entries and appreciate the encouragement and support you show us - you are THE BEST!!!

It is a special month here for us at Midnight Madness, our monthly sponsor is our very own Priscilla Styles you can check out her store here.  We have all used her Envelope Kit and I have to say I am a convert - loving it Priscilla!!  I have seen these used each week by Priscilla and some of the DT and have been in awe of the gorgeous creations and now it is MY TURN to play!

I have also used this image from our weekly sponsor for this week - Sunshine and Giggles, how sweet is she!?!?  I have to say that I am not really a 'pink' person - I guess this comes from being the first girl on my Father's side of the family for something like 63 years - and yes....PINK, PINK, PINK!!!  But I do have to say I love it with this image and went for a 'girly' look.

'The DP is embossed with the 'Victoria' Folder and sponged around the edges, the butterflies are also sponged and had small pearls added ,

I had a lot of fun creating the envelopes and was pleasantly surprised at how easy it is.  Decorating them is the part that makes them unique and a gift in themselves.  I love it that they can be individualised and unique!  I have used the butterflies and some glitterly flowers on the front, along with a circle sentiment, some scalloped DP and the gingham ribbon.

I kept the back simplier and used the SU Scalloped Border Punch along with a flower and of course the ribbon.  I am sure as the month progresses, I may get more adventurous! I was a bit 'skeered' with my first one! LOL!  But needn't have been!

Just to finish it off I made a matching bookmark, as I had made a narrower card and made the bookmark as a filler - thanks Priscilla for the idea.....it makes it a lovely gift set - I can see more of these in the future!

Now onto the Sketch for this week - don't forget we do offer a CAS sketch and you can see both the sketches here.  It is as 'Easy as 1-2-3'  We are loving seeing the HUGE variety of styles - there is always inspiration to be found with your cards!
