MMSC80 Elegant Wings

Hello - it is great to see you here today - it is time for the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge - and another fabulous sketch!

I have three projects for you today - no surprises there for those of you who know me is there!? LOL!  I am doing something different this week and two of my projects are not actually cards but pales for a Paper Bag Album I am making - the sketch is perfect!  All projects have been created using the fabulous card stock and papers from our very generous monthly sponsor Patricia from The Paper Temptress

The first page is created using the fabulous butterflies from Layers of Color Butterfly Collector art stamp set and the SU image

My next project is another page for the Paper Bag Album, this time using an image from 'priscillastyles' Stores - this is a favourite of mine - it is so feminine and makes a gorgeous project in any style!

My third project is a card for the PriscillaStyles Design Team using one of Priscilla's gorgeous new Christmas images - they are divine - you can find them here - brace yourself - you are going to LOVE them!!

I coloured them with my trusty SU Chalks and a Blender Pen and then added some shimmer, in the form of Kindy Glitz and finally a coating of Dimensional Magic what gives them the glass like appearance!! You have to love the gorgeous embossed DP's - the Card stock from The Paper Temptress embosses divinely - look at the depth of the pattern on the gold - I love that!

These cards are for the following challenges:
Critter Challenge - Texture - all 3 cards
Pollycraft Challenge - Glittery Christmas - card 3
Paper Playtime - PS I Love You - about something you love, for someone you love, using a technique you love..... I love my Cuttlebug and embossing!!
Crafty Pad - Christmas Sparkle - card 3
I Did It Creations - Traditional Christmas Colours - card 3
One Stitch at a Time - Favoutite Colours - Another favourite combo is pink and green - cards 1 and 2
2 Sisters - Christmas - xard 3
Crazy4Challenges - Christmas - card 3
Ellephantastic - Butterfly or Christmas - cards 1
Secret Crafter - Sparkle and Shine - all cards
