MMSC73 - Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge

This card was made for a first time challenge in the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge #73.  I've been trying a few challenges lately, they aren't for prizes - mainly just to follow the sketches and have fun.  The challenge for the above card was either for a plain design (no embellishments on the side) or same design with 3 embellishments on each side.  I chose to add flowers on my card.  First I tested it with buttons, brads, gems, and finally chose to put flowers on it.  There are so many really, really pretty cards in the challenge that mine just sort of fades away, but it was fun nonetheless.

Card Recipe:

Stamps:  Wild Flower Box Set - Staci's Stamps
Ink:  Soft Suede and Early Espresso (stamped off)
Paper:  SU Chocolate Chip, Bashful Blue; Basic Gray Granola DP and Michael's ivory CS
Accessories:  SU gem brads; Prima flowers and SU punch.

What a beautiful day today - mid-70's and breezy.  I ran up to the post office this afternoon to get a book of stamps and saw kids playing in the leaves - raked up piles of leaves and the little ones were jumping in the piles laughing!

Well, gotta run - stuff to do, so turning off the blurb on the blog.  Later Gator!!
