Finally Tried a Midnight Madness Sketch


This week for the Midnight Madness sketch challenge (MMSC37), we had a choice of two similar sketches. One was clean and simple and one was more ornate. I went with the clean and simple sketch. I thought this patterned paper had enough going on that it might be overkill with the ornate sketch. They have really fun sketches posted each Monday. This is the first time I've had a chance to play.

I've been on a bit of a Valentine making kick. Funny thing is, I don't usually send them out. I guess I'll have to this year. Those Valentine stamps are just too cute to resist. This little Tilda was one of those must have stamps for me, I think she is just adorable with her bow and heart arrows!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Hope you are having a terrific weekend!

Card Recipe:
Stamps: Tilda from Magnolia, sentiment from LAD
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Purely Pomegranate
Paper: Purely Pomegranate, Basic Black PTI ssw, DCWV Madly in Love paper pack
Embellishments: copics, nesties, EK success heart border punch, sponges, MM black rhinestones, Copic spica glitter pens
