Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge & I won!

This card is for the MMSC for this week. Amazingly, I had it almost finished before the "official" release of the sketch since they do previews now. I hadn't seen the CAS version of the sketch so my sparkles kind of "threw up" on this card. Every time I looked at this card I kept thinking the swirls at the top looked like Moose Antlers. Then I decided they are more like Cape Buffalo or Water Buffalo. Now, everyone sing along with Larry the Cucumber, "Everybody's got a Water Buffalo...."

The details:
Stamps: CDS January Flower of the Month
Ink: Memento Black, So Saffron
Paper: Shimmery White, yellow, Green
Accessories: Sizzix sizzlit swirls, Nestabilities, CB die, stick on gems, copics, Spring Flowers Punch, Ribbon (Michael's), Button (Papertrey Ink)

I encourage you to play in these challenges. I just won a prize from the MMSC blog challenge! It also stretches your creative juices!

Thanks for grazing in my field today!

Well, it makes me break out in song with Larry Cucumber, I may have to bow out of these challenges! Hee! Very cute, and I know what ya mean about the antlers, I see hidden things in my cards sometimes too.
I am glad they started the CAS as I may actually decide to play along.
Yipee for winning that fun paper, Lori!!
