Hello everyone!
Hope you all enjoyed a great weekend with lots of fun filled days! I've been just a little frustrated lately with my computer issues not allowing me to get into the blogging world when I want to but I'm hoping by the end of next week those hassles will be behind me! My DH tried to get more speed added to the computer only to be told that the area we live in doesn't have the capabilities to receive the faster connections! Go figure! Anyway, after lots of research it seems we will have to go with another carrier who will run some new lines and hopefully (fingers crossed) we will have super speed and less problems! I sure hope so! There's nothing worse than waiting 5 minutes for someones blog to open then not being able to see the project photos in order to leave comments! Very frustrating! Anywho....enough of that and onto the important stuff....over at Midnight Madness this week we have a lovely sketch to work with!
This weeks sketch...it's "YOUR PICK" Make it fancy, clean and simple, or somewhere in-between.

Just have fun and come play with us :)

For my card this week I used this sweet image from Stamp and Create called Angelica! Colored her in copics and stickles and the gold stars were colored with glitter pens that my sister sent to me for my birthday. I sponged the edges to soften the border then layered the card with 6 layers. The embossing on the background dp was done with two different embossing folders and the corner treatments were done using sizzix dies.
 The flowers are from Prima and gems too.
I have to say that this is one of my all time favorite sketches, probably because I do symmetrical designs better than anything else! I love how this one turned out!
Please don't forget to check out my DT sisters work over on the Midnight Madness blog.


  1. OooOOooOOOh this is soo pretty!! I love the symmetrical style too :D

    Which stickles did you use on her dress, Stardust? It looks so pretty.

    Good luck with your connection upgrade - I'd be so lost without being able to blog surf every day. eeeks!

  2. WOW Charlotte this is BEAUTIFUL!!!!!

  3. Beautiful card, Charlotte! I love all the sparkles!


  4. What Great sparkle, lovely colors. Such a pretty design. Awesome embellies! So glad to be joining you at MM. :)

  5. I love the fresh whimsical look and the embossing on your card. It's so pretty.

  6. Hi Charlotte!
    I do feel with you! I am so sorry to hear about the computerissues and not beeing able to get more speed.... I am shcoked or shocked or something... Don't you live in Miami? Big city like that and no Superspeed or fiberoptic? We don't have fiberoptic either, but I can't complain about the speed.

    Ok, so no I am rambeling about... have to do it somewhere since the mail has gone so quiet, I miss the MM mailchatter. Now you will probably use 5 minutes just to download my comment.... sorry about that *LOL* I hope it all workes out for you soon.

    Anyway, your card is gorgeous as always! Love the sparkeling skirt and wings ;o) Your corners are very cool!

  7. Hey Charlotte, good luck with the computer issues.. I hope it gets worked out. Love your card this week. Thanks for being a part of the Midnight Madness Design Team and thanks for your amazing card this week :)

  8. hi Charlotte! Wow what a beautiful card. Love your color choice and design.
