Midnight Madness (MMSC71) challenge

Hi everyone!
Right now I am in San Ramon, CA with my two gorgeous grandsons! My son and daughter in law are in Italy and I was lucky enough to get to come out here and stay with the boys. They may be seeing St. Peters, the Vatican, Venice and Florence but I am seeing God's gift to me right in front of my eyes! I must admit I am really tired at night, (the boys are 6 and 5) but I am still living on east coast time so I can go to bed early and tell myself in NC it's 3 hours later! :)  OK, let's get to why you stopped by! :)

Here is the challenge for this week from Priscilla (who just got back from the Midnight Madness Cruise!!):

 My interpretation of this sketch is using the "Man with Flowers" image, which you can find in Priscilla's store.





I had this tiny bottle and thought it would make a cute vase to put on the card. The little beads with the hearts seemed appropriate as well. This guy seems to be serious about his emotions, so I thought "I Love You" would work as the text, I actually used stickers instead of the computer.  In keeping with a "manly" theme I tried not to "prissy" it up too much!  I hope you like it, it was certainly fun to make!!

Be sure to check out the side bar of the blog for the other members of the team so you can visit their blogs! You will find some astoundingly beautiful work! Thanks for coming by to check out my card, I am hoping you will take the time to say "hello"!   
DON"T forget to visit Prisicilla's store, you don't want to miss the new digi's and check out all of her images!!
