Whisper



Hi. It's finally Friday! And it's colder than all get out here! I have had a couple of emails regarding my new blog header picture. It's a professional photographer's picture of the rapids at Niagara Falls, New York, during a very cold day a few years back. Those waters are super fast moving and are almost as exciting to see as the actual Falls.
Today's card is for two challenges. The Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge (MMSC38)(http://www.priscillastyles.blogspot.com/) and Mo's Digital Pencil Too (www.mosdigitalchallenge.blogspot.com)
I loved working with this sketch from Midnight Madness. They are offering two sketches now, one plain and one more involved and it's your choice or you can try both! The image is a digital
image by Mo Manning.
The challenge at Digital Pencil Too was to use shades of gray. I added just a touch of red to my card to coordinate with the heart on her top. This was fun too, and challenging!
I used assorted papers from my stash. The corners are a punch from SU. The red dots are Martha Stewart. The star burst is a punch. The inside of the easel card sentiment is by Eclectic Omnibus. The red paper is from DCWV Glitter Stack and the border punch is by MS.
Hope you have a great Friday. Thanks for stopping by. Until tomorrow.

Sue, your card is so cute..reminds me of those teen school days. It is just adorable and really brought me back..even as far back as when we use to play "telephone" ..Do you remember that... I think that is what is was called.. you whisper a message in someones ear and then they whisper in the next persons ear..by the time you get to the end of the line..the message is completely screwed up..LOL Anyway, I love the red accents on your card..it really makes everything come alive.. Well done with the sketch and I hope you took a pick at next weeks sneak peek.. It is a fun heart one ;)
