Donna's MMSC 68- and Priscillastyles Design Team!!

Good Morning All!
I have made this dragonfly card for the current MMSC 68 sketch challenge. This image is one of Priscilla's digital images, isn't he/she just gorgeous?!

I loved working with this dragonfly! It is such a great design! I used Glitter Crystals by Scribbles on the wings and then the background paper was sprayed with Glitter Mist. I made the rose out of card stock from the video tutorial on CDAC and a MS punch around the larger card stock background and another MS punch for the leaves. The lace is from Walmart, and the gold thread in the crisscross is an old "scarf" I used in VBS a couple of summers ago, I am pulling one long thread at a time and using it! :)

I bought an inexpensive sewing machine back in January and hadn't even threaded the needle! LOL  It has been sitting there intimidating me for months! So, I decided about 10 days ago to get busy and see if I could use it, it really wasn't that hard!!! I am now in love with sewing on cards. So forgive me, I have gone stitching wild! It sure beats doing it by hand!!!

Now for some EXCITING news: Priscilla has put together a design team for her digital images. I was fortunate and honored to be chosen to be on this the first ever team. As you will note on my side bar, the team is broken up into Team A and Team B.  You will definitely want to visit these sites to see what digitals are being showcased.  Today, a new image set has been put in the store, it is awesome and Priscilla is highlighting it for you on the MMSC 68 challenge page and in the store.  Rush over to her store and take a look at the wonderfully designed images awaiting your creativity! Join me in thanking Priscilla and Carol for putting this new design team together for your pleasure. You ladies are the absolute best!!! Thank you so much for this opportunity!
Hugs and Blessings!

Hi Donna!
Your first PS DT card is a wowzer! I looks so warm and inviting with all the fabric and stitching! I love the big lace and the dark red DP! Great take on the MMSC sketch too. I am looking forward to working with you both on the PS team but also on the SCH team. I wish I could come to your home and then you could teach me to use a sewing machine *LOL*

Thanks for joining Midnight Madess Challenge. Your support is highly valued, and we hope to see you playing with us again real soon ;o)

I love the gold thread on the lace. The whole card is so pretty. I'm also glad that you used that corner because it's reminded me that I have it and I'm not sure where it is. I'll have to do some digging! Thanks.

Donna your card is magnificent. I love the lace trim and the beautiful punches around the entire card. The gold threading adds so much class and character to the over effect of this exquisite creation! What you did with the "priscillastyles" dragonfly is phenomenal! That beautiful flower is the perfect accompaniment to the style and theme of your gorgeous card. Great job with the sketch. Thank you so much for playing along with the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge.

Bear Hugs,
