MMSC78 My Cup of Tea/Bird Song

Where has the week gone - it is time for the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge once again - and we all love that don't we!  It is great to see so many of you playing along with us - your card are fabulous!!  What a week I have had but I will put that aside and show you what I have created using Priscilla's fabulous sketch!

My first card is using this gorgeous teacup from "priscillastyles" Stores - this is a fabulous image to colour - and all card stock is form your monthly Sponsor The Paper Temptress- and they are divine, I love the textures and the quality of the card stock - thank you Patricia for being so generous to the Design TeamT - I am going to have such fun this week!

  I used my SU Chalks and a Blender Pen - you know how I love those Chalks!!

I have popped the cup on foam tape -you can see the dimension above = it always makes a card 'pop!'
My next card is using the image from our Weekly Bonus Sponsor DRS designs - I fell in love with this darling little bird as soon as I saw it - it is the most adorable shape and that wins me every time!!

The image has been coloured with SU chalks and a Blender Pen

and popped up onto a Spellbinders Large Oval with foam dots

Crotchet lace is added around the oval, along with assorted flowers and Kaiser Chocolate Pearls.
The card stock is also from our monthly Sponsor, The Paper Temptress and has been embossed, I love the way the embossing is so deep on the gold - perfect!  DieCut corners have been added and come Distressed Stickles as a finishing touch.
