MMSC92- Midnight Madness!


It's time for another Midnight Madness sketch challenge. This week's challenge is #92. Here is what you will be working with this week.

Make it plain, make it fancy or anywhere in between. 
I chose to use one of Priscilla's new designs called "Bird Cluster".  You can see it on the Midnight Madness Blog  and at Priscilla's store.


This is my take on the sketch this week. I love this line of birds and after I finished with the card my Dad mentioned his sister is having her 90th birthday the first part of March. I decided to go back and make a couple of adjustments so I could send it to my aunt for this wonderful occasion.



Since this is such a special birthday I wanted a very special envelope to put the card in. I used the same image on the outside of the front of the envelope and mimicked the stitching that is on the card. By adding the "90" to the front of the card it personalized it as a birthday card, plus the envelope has "Happy Birthday" gold embossed on it. The inside (which I forgot to take a photo of) has a very personal message along with the song "Happy Birthday". I hope it brings a smile!!

This is the front and back of the envelope. My Dad has it now and will be mailing it to Texas tomorrow!

On the sidebar you will find links to my team mates blogs where you will find some astounding eye candy. Please take the time to visit each one and enjoy the beauty and inspiration! Come play with us at Midnight Madness this week using Priscilla's latest amazing sketch!! Thanks for dropping by!!
