MMSC105 Opulence

Tuesday comes around so quickly and with it comes the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge - and we love that don't we!!

This week I have had a lot of fun with one of Priscilla's new images - Royalty Kings Crown - how gorgeous is it!!  I decided opulence was the way to go

I used some of Teresa Collins DP - perfect (in my opinion! LOL)

I coloured the image with SU Chalks and  a Blender Pen and added it to a Spellbinders Fleur De Lis Frame - I borrows this Die and it is one I am going to have to get - I love it!!  The Nestibilitie has been cut out with the Grand Calibur - I love the crisp edges!

An Easel card seemed to be the way to go with this sketch and I dug deep into my stash of buttons and found these gorgeous CHUNKY and blingy buttons - adding to the opulent feel!
