This is my card for the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge this week, as their March Guest.
The stamp is a retired Stampin Up stamp. I colored the image with Copics. Cut the image up according to the sketch and sponged the edges with Rangers new Spun Sugar distress ink. I added designer papers to the top and bottom blocks. Kaiser pearls in the corners. Prima flowers and a bow and charm to finish up.
The matching envelope is from Priscilla's store. The card, even with the flowers sticking up will slide easily in the envelop which is 3/4" thick. No bumps or lumps, I love them. And they go together so easily. I punched the design across the top with a Martha Stewart punch, added the bird, and used the distress ink on the edges. Priscilla's Store is the monthly sponsor for March and she is giving some really great craft items away at the end of the month. Read all about how to qualify to win this great give away on the MMSC blog.
