Happy Tuesday Folks and welcome to another Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge. Are you ready for some fun crafting and creating with this weeks sketch? I had fun creating my project this week and although I literally had about two hours to complete it (for a 7 year old's birthday), and felt a bit rushed, I'm super happy with how it turned out! But more about that later!

Here is the set I made using this adorable image from Michelle Perkett. Isn't it the cutest? I had a gift certificate for a school friend of my son's and didn't have time to make another card for it, so I put an image that I'd previously colored onto a plastic tin, added some butterflies, flower and some ribbon and that's it! On the inside I put some irredescent grass and the gift card. A quick and easy project that was very well recieved.  
 The little tin can be reused to store something else once the gift card is removed. It can be opened over and over again as it comes complete with a metal washer to easily flip open the lid.
 Here's a closeup of that sweet puppy on the card.
Here's a photo of the flower and butterfly I added to the lid.
Well I hope you'll join in with the fun this week and don't forget to stop by my DT sisters and show them some love!
Have a wonderful week!
