MMSC64 Ride Like the Wind Bullseye!!!

What a great week it has been at the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge - it is such a thrill for us as Member's of the Design Team to see so many play along - it is so inspiring to visit your blogs and see your works of the heart!!  Love it - keep them coming

I have done it again and made two cards for this weeks Challenge - how could I resist with our weekly sponsor being Lacey from Stamp and Create - this adorable image is Ride 'em Ryan and irresistible - he is perfect for a boy card!!   I have coloured him with chalks and made a few additions to make him a  bit more rustic - you know how it is with boys!

He is cut out by hand and then popped up on foam tape onto that gorgeous DP from Stampin' Up - some of which has been embossed with the Perfect Paisley' embossing Folder - perfect for a Western style card!!  I have cut out some fabulous leather look DP with the SU Windows Lot Punch and used the ends to fit the sketch, adding some blue brads - I love the touch of blue!  I have added Corner Dies that came in a RAK - these are fabulous and work so well with this sketch

My next card is made with an image from Priscilla - how could I not love this!  As soon as I saw it I realised that by keeping an eye out for what Priscilla does just ENABLES me with craft making - LOL!  This image is available over at CDAC for a limited time - it now also comes in three colours - divine!  I went for a classic combination of pink and black!

I added pearls around the neckline and lightly coloured the skirt with pink chalks and then added SU Dazzling Diamonds - there is a close up a bit further down the post.

I used three different DPs and lots of layering to complete this card!  You can see the shimmer of the Dazzling Diamonds below.

I used some silver mesh and some fabric roses that were way too big - I cut half the height off them and they were perfect!   Silver pearls added to some corners finished it off.

I am linking these to the following Challenges:
OSAAT - Black, White and one other colour - pink (card 2)
Creative Inspirations - Anything Goes (both cards)
Charisma Cards - Anything But Square - rectangle (both cards)
Stamp Simply - Two's Company - both cards 2 corner dies (card 1) 2 roses (card 2)

Once again, it's "YOUR PICK" It is as Easy as 1-2-3.

Enter one style or both this week.
Just have fun and come play with us :)

I see all of them as you upload on your blog through the feed blitz, so I know what you've been doing. But, commenting time has been a problem for me as of late as I'm sure it is for you too. I will do the best I can, but I will never cease to be amazed at each and everything you do my friend!!
