MMSC56 Just My Cup of Tea!

My card for this weeks Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge  is prescheduled as I am still visiting my family in New Zealand.  Although I have not been able to comment as often as I would like to have, I have been able to have a little look at your cards and have loved seeing them - the week has flown and it is time for another sketch.

This week I have used one of Priscilla's images - isn't this teacup divine!  I just love how her images are so easy to colour and come together so easily. I have embossed the Stampin' Up DP with the Fleur de Lis Embossing Folder and used it in reverse.

The image has been coloured with SU Chalks/Pastels and a Blender Pen and popped up onto some DP from the K&Company DP.  The edges have been distressed and pearls added.

This photo gives you an idea of the dimension!

Ribbon has been added and run  through a pearl buckle/slider - this sketch is perfect for these buckles, I have had them for some time and have started using them a,lot lately!

 I hope this card makes you want to pop over to "priscillastyles" store and see the other digi's Priscilla has - she is adding new ones regularly - so keep an eye out for them!  I don't know about you but I it is the shape of things that attracts me to them - I love the shape of this cup - I just want to hold it on my hands  - that is what makes it a great image for me - I love Priscilla's digi's - she has the 'shape thing' happening BIG TIME!!

Now for this weeks sketch:

The CAS style sketch is available here.  It is as Easy as 1-2-3'

  11. Linda, even from New Zealand, we got to feast on your beautiful work!! Of course, I know you had this done ahead of time being Priscilla's favorite and everything!! LOL!! You did such a beautiful job on this. Don't you just love when you can use Priscilla's digis? I used her fairy image for next week's sketch and I absolutely fell in love with it. It was so easy to cut out too. Your vintage style shines through on this my friend and, guess what, I used the pearl ribbon slider too that you gave me! I'm so excited to be on the team, but it is a bit intimidating with this quality of work from the design team!! Yikes!!! Can't wait till you're back. Tell Mum I said "hi"!!

  12. Linda, this card of yours using Priscilla's digi is super fantastic! I just love your entire design! Hope you are having a fun vacation!
    It is soooo quiet at MM without you!

  13. Hi linda!! Beautiful card!! Absolutely love the vintage feel to it and that lace is gorgeous!!

  14. Hi Linda!! I absolutely love the vintage feel to this card!! From the teapot to the lace! GORGEOUS!

  15. Linda, you've done this teacup justice with all the little details...absolutely gorgeous! Those pearly buckles are just perfect with the "china" and very fitting too! I hope you had a lovely time with your mum in NZ but it's good to have you home again....we missed you girl! Can't wait to see some pickies!
