MMSC88-Join the fun!

It is Midnight Madness day!! Each week a fantastic sketch is posted, plain or fancy....or a mixture of both! Your choice! Make a card, post to the site, link the card you have entered back to the Midnight Madness Challenge and JOIN the fun!!

This week I am using one of Priscilla's new images and then incorporating an older image into the design.
This is called Heart Wreath, isn't it just gorgeous? If you click on the link you will find the image in the store and another card done by Althea, one of my teammates. This image is so versatile and looks wonderful bright and vibrant like Althea's or soft and muted like mine.


Most of the time I wind up using a combination of the sketches, this week is no exception. The other image I used is from the Flying Birds set (six images for only $5.00);  I love this set and it seemed perfect to match with the Heart Wreath! Here is a close up of one of the two birds on my card.

You can find these and many other images at Priscilla's store. Be sure to check out all the new Valentine images (the Heart Wreath is one of them). Ok, let's take a look at my card and the inside. I hope you like the way it turned out.


Thanks for stopping in, be sure to visit my teammates and join us in the sketch this week! Hope you have a "eye candy" filled journey as you visit all the various blogs!
