MIdnight Madness MMSC 3

Happy Tuesday Folks!

If this post works you should be seeing it on May 26th!!!! I've tried to schedule things before and they have not worked!!!

Hope everyone is ready for the Midnight Madness challenge today!!! Yes it's that time again when we show how creative we can get with the 3rd MMSC...and I know we have had some absolutely fabulous entries. Great job everyone who entered.....and if you didn't....what yer waiting for....there's an awesome prize to be won and this is soooooo much fun so come on down and play!!! Check out the site at Priscilla's, get all the details and get cracking!!!

This time I decided to use a vintage image I've had for a while but never used. I love this picture.....the little girl, flowers and colors are so pretty, don't you think? The dp I used is from DCWV Old World Stack.... the ones I chose are embossed so give a nice texture to the card. I don't own all those fancy embossing tools (yet), so when a designer paper is embossed, I'm loving it!!! I layered the image with pop dots to give extra dimension, sprinkled the flowers with sparkling embossing powder and raised them and her bow higher with dots. All the flowers are from Prima and the ribbon is some left over holiday wired edge from Michael's. I stitched the card and added a ribbon buckle from Joann's.

Card recipe
DP - DCWV Old World Stack & Glitter Christmas stack
Ribbon - Celebrate It, Holiday ribbon bow tique from Michael's
Flowers - Prima, Nursery Rhymes from Michael's
