MMSC99 Love Nature

This weeks Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge is here - are you ready for it!?!?  There is an incredible amount of inspiration to be found and a fabulous sketch to inspire you - throw in a prize or two and what more could we want!?!


This week I have the honour of using an image from one of the original MMSC DT - Shawne - her wonderful Studio 313 images are available at McMahon Five Designs - the site of Sue, another of the original MMSC DT - way to go girls - we are so proud of you!  


The image has been printed and layered onto black card stock.  I have  added a handmade flower along with a Flourish from Tim Holtz and some leaves from Stampin' Up.


The background DP (that you can just see here) is from the wonderful Gunn - the photos so not show is off well enough - it is divine!!  Thanks Gunn!!


I have added a Vintage Corner and the gorgeous Floral Motif Accent from Spellbinders - these have been cut with my Spellbinders Grand Calibur.  I love the way the Die Cuts can dress up a card so easily!!

This card is for the following Challenges:
Lexis Creations - Monochromatic
Magical Mondays - Magical Pearls and Swirls
Make It Monday - Anything Goes
Woodware USA - Anything Goes
Catered Crop - Nana's Recipe - I used bling, Distressing, Distressing Tool,  Scallops and Swirls
