Good Morning my fellow bloggers!
Well it's time for me to catch up with a bunch of things now that I'm back from my vacation, and get back into the swing of daily life. Canada was great and we had fabulous weather during our trip, better than what Florida had while we were away! We flew in to Montreal and spent a couple of days there, then drove via Ottawa to our little rented house in the woods! I think for us our favorite area was Niagara Falls, which is so beautiful, especially at night when they put the colored lights on the waterfalls. While we were there we were lucky to see some wildlife too, some deer, little chipmunks, and some black squirrels! OK enough about my vacation and onto the other important stuff going on at Midnight Madness~

For my projects this week I have a card made with an image from D'Amour Allure and flowers from Petaloo and my altered box is using flowers from Petaloo.
The image is called Arabella. The flowers on the card were stained with brewed coffee granuals that were cooled and squeezed out onto them. When they were dry I edged them with a copic pen in pale sepia. 
The flowers on the box were stained with Moon glow's starburst stains in Autumn Maple Crimson from Lindy's Stamp Gang and water. I painted them in different strengths of the starburst stain to make them look realistic.
The corners were made with a Sizzix Sizzlits die from the Architectural Accents set. Lace is from my stash and gems from Micheal's.  
Here's a closeup of the flowers, don't they look pretty? I love how my project turned out and am really loving these fabulous Petaloo flowers.
Thanks for stopping by today and for your kind comments. Don't forget to stop by my DT sisters blogs to leave them some love too.
Have a great day!
