Hi, sorry for the late post, but worked late tonight.
I have some fabulous news to share...........I have been invited to be the "Guest Diva" at the
MIDNIGHT MADNESS SKETCH CHALLENGE for the month of March, and since March has five Tuesdays, I get an extra challenge!!! I could not be more excited about this coming Month. Priscilla and her wonderful team of gals could not be more welcoming and enthusiastic. So beginning with challenge #43 you will see my take on the challenge on the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge blog.
Today's card is for the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge (MMSC42). I loved this sketch. The monthly sponsor for February is Cornish Heritage Farms. I love their stamps and have a lot of them. This image of the little girl with the tulips is theirs. I stamped her in versafine blue ink and only lightly colored the tulips. I was going for the feel of a tile by leaving it plain. The papers are from my stash and the flowers are silk flowers I pulled off the stems. I used some yellow ribbon and tied the buttons on it after threading them with silver thread.
Hope you get a chance to visit the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge, and give this sketch a go.
And there is a nice welcome for me on there too.
Have a great Wednesday. Thanks for stopping by. Until tomorrow............

Sue, love this! Since I am of Dutch descent this reminds me of Delft pottery. Of course, tulips are dear to my heart as well! Lovely!

Ohhh, "Susie Q!" Congratulations on your new assignment -- I am delighted for you and will have to pop by and try to play with you all. This card is as Gwen says, reminiscent of Delft pottery. This little tulip girl is charming. I'm getting anxious to see your banner show signs of spring. Smiles to you!

Sue I love the vintage look of this image...she is as sweet and precious as can be. I love the gingham paper with it too!!! Just a beautiful display of artistry. I am wondering if you are still singing my song today. I will leave you with another verse:

See the sugar bowl do the tootsie roll
With the big bad devils food cake.
If you eat too much ooh ooh
You'll awake with a tummy ache.

Bear hugs,
Carol :o}

Oh, this is so pretty. I love the colors. The deep blue really stands out against the yellow paper. That gingham paper is just wonderful. You did such a great job with the flowers, buttons and ribbons. A treat for the eyes. Thanks for playing with us at the MMSC, and we look forward to a fun-filled March with you. Hope you are ready for us ;)



Sue from Oregon said... this card...sort of reminds me of the Morton Salt ya think? The soft yellow adds such a pretty touch and such a great use of DP in this sketch!
