Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge #9


I love Tuesdays because of the great challenges that happen on that day of the week. This is for the Midnight Madness Sketch challenge. I used my new Stampin' Up 's Autumn Day stamp for this arrangement and added a few speckles with my itty bitty background stamp. I used some of the new soft suede ink and some of the retiring color baja breeze. Actually, I am mourning the loss of my baja breeze. I have a stash, but it's going to have to last me during these hard times. (sniff, sniff). The vase is punched from the wide oval punch.

I think have some of these papers too. I love the colors, pearls and your ribbon. Very clever using paper on the vase (which is why I love this paper) AND the stamped flowers inside. Thanks for playing at Midnight Madness and see you next week.

Hi Liz!

Very creative using your punch for the vase! I'll have to try and remember that. I also love how you laced up the side of the card. Very striking! See you next week!

See you next week!

I can't wait to here about your weekend...I have felt the Lord's strong hand breaking bondages, chains, hard hearts all day today. I am still praying for supernatural strength of you.
