MMSC57 The Plans

I just love Tuesdays - it is Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge time - who can resist, I love these challenges and am always inspired by Priscilla's amazing sketches and everyone playing along makes it so much fun too!!  This weeks sketch is no exception, but first my card!

I have used the scripture from our Weekly Bonus Sponsor, McMahon Five Designs - this verse has always been a favourite with me.  I printed 2 copies and  cut out some of the more significant words on the top layer, inked around them and adhered them with foam tape.

The DP has been embossed with the Textiles Embossing Folder, I then added a strip of gold mesh ribbon down through the centre - it does not show up well in the photos - how typical is that!  You can see it more clearly in the photo below!!

The flourishes are Tim Holtz Grungeboard and have been sprayed with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Olive - bet you wouldn't have picked the colour, it is showing up as dark brown - so just picture Olive okay!!  I added some gorgeous crochet lace under the gold netted ribbon too - oops nearly forgot to mention that!!  The gold pearls from my friend and one of our MMSC GDT's pam (aka pam124) THANKS PAM - they are perfect - I am loving them!!

Now - here is what you are waiting for - this weeks sketch

You have the choice of this sketch or the CAS one, you can find it here.  It is as 'easy as 1-2-3'!
