Good morning! There's lots of exciting stuff going on here today, because today is my first chance to make a post as a member of the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge Design team. The latest challenge is up, and it's your choice as to whether you want to go fancy, or clean and simple, but either way, when you play along, you get the chance at a fabulous prize. Our weekly sponsor for this challenge is Craft Brulee, and the sponsor for this month is Lindy's Stamp Gang. The chance for two wonderful prizes awaits you, and all you have to do is play along.
My card was made with the PK-350, Colby and Jack Cheese stamp set from Peachy Keen Stamps. I followed the MMSC85 and used this beautiful patterned paper from one of My Mind's Eye winter collections. Instead of ribbon for the sketch element behind the buttons and for the bow, I decided to use twine from Jillibean Soup. I just felt that lent more of a rustic touch and went much better with the aged look of the paper. I really love working with the twine, and there are so many fabulous colors to chose from. Thankfully, my sweet Secret Santa Susan sent me a HUGE bag of buttons in my Secret Santa package, and I was able to find so many that went beautifully with this paper.
Please hop on over to the Midnight Madness Challenge Blog and check out all the amazing samples that the design team has created for you. They are such a talented group of paper crafters, and you can't help but leave there completely inspired. Thanks so much for making my day by stopping by. A very sweet commenter asked, and since there's a new look to my blog, I thought maybe I'd better point it out.
