Midnight Madness MMSC5

Good morning everyone!

Well today is the day, It's MIDNIGHT MADNESS time again!!! WHOOO HOO....the design team have been very busy working behind the scenes on some exciting upcoming events....sorry I can't tell you about them but you will see in the upcoming weeks. Got you curious huh!!!
What a wonderful selection of entries we have had this week, I tell you that each week it gets more difficult to choose a winner for the Masterpiece award.......in my opinion everyone deserves the award for entering. Fabulous creations! If you haven't had the chance to check it out yet....go ahead and pop on over to priscilla's for some mind blowing inspiration! The chance to win some really cool prizes could also be an incentive to come and play!!!

OK enough said.....now to my card. This week I chose a stamp from one of my fav. designers Elisabeth Bell to use on my card. This little girl is called Daisy, and she always appeals to me with her day dreamy look!!! Love it. I colored her in prismacolor pencils and copics.....I like to mix and match a bit. Then the flowers in her hair are dotted with glitter glue to give them a little shine. Not sure if you can see that on the photo! The dp is from K & Co, and I had been looking at it for a while in Michael's but never bought any, then last week it went on sale so I just had to get it....it's fabulous because it's got a different design on each side, which means when I make my envelope I don't need to line it separately!!
I originally put a bow at the top right hand corner of this card but wasn't completely convinced it fitted perfectly, so I showed it to my son and he told me "Mom, I don't like the bow!! You should put another flower there". Well, that's exactly what I did and I am so glad I listened to my very creative little 5 year old!!! THANK YOU THIJS!!! MOMMY LOVES YOU! XXX
