Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge

One of my FAVORITE challenges to do is Midnight Madness because I've "met" Priscilla and some of the others online and even "been to parties" online with them! LOL! I was so excited to get to make a MMSC card this week (okay, this month, this summer, this year! LOL!). The stamp is a bit hard to see, so I will link a location to the set in my details. It says, "God is Love." This paper is from that wonderful stack my dear friend Kathy gave me. I guess I should refer to her as Chemo Kathy (or Kemo Kathy?) since I've mentioned her before. Not sure if I ever mentioned that when she gave it to me she said, "I wasn't sure if I should get this one because you don't make a lot of purple cards." I told her, "That's because I didn't have any purple DP!" Was that perfect, or what? ALL of these flowers are from a prize package I won on MMSC! See, it is FUN to play in challenges because you not only get to stretch your imagination with cardmaking, but you can win cool stuff! The brads may have been from my sweet friend Jen Balcer (you cannot outgive that woman---she's so amazing). I think the stick on gems might have been a gift, too. I just realized the INK was even given to me from my friend Kelly! Wow, am I ever blessed! Hope you enjoyed this card & my ramblings.

Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge:
Stamps: CDS Peace for the Journey
Ink: Brilliance multi-colored ink pad, Distress Ink Antique Paper
Tools: CB die for corner trim, Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels (4 I think)
Other stuff: Prima flowers, brads, gems from K & Co.
Paper: shimmer paper from JoAnn, textured lavendar from Hobby Lobby, white, DP is K& Co. (or if you like K & Ko. from Kemo Kathy)

Thanks for stopping by!

Great take on the sketch, Lori. I opted not to play this week because the sketch didn't "speak" to me. It obviously spoke to you well!!!
