MMSC 51 and GC51- Botanical


I used the sketch from Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge for this card. It also fits for the challenge at Gingersnap Creations where the theme was botanical. The flower stamp is from Great Impressions, and I don't know the company that the flourish in the corner came from. The small sentiment is from Hero Arts. I used a technique I saw recently where you stamp the image in a light color and then slightly move over and stamp in a dark color. It really gives the image some dimension.

Hi Vickie, I love how you worked your stamps on this card..It does add such dimension to your card. Your colors are lovely and perfect for your botanical theme. You did a wonderful job with this weeks sketch and I think this is another one of my favorites of yours :) What a wonderful card!!!!Thank you so much for playing the Midnight Madness sketch challenge this week. Remember to get a head start on next weeks sketch by taking a sneak peek at the next sketch on Friday. We don’t want you to miss out on all the fun we have planned for our Anniversary week/month. We appreciate our players so much and we will be showing that throughout the month of May :)

Vickie I too like how the stamping came out. It looks like it is 3 dimensional...what an inspiration. I might have to give this a whirl myself, I like it so much. This is so elegant with it's gracious style and color. A real beauty for the eye to behold. Thanks for playing along with us this week at the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge. We'll be looking for you next week when we start our Anniversary celebration. Good luck in the prize drawings.

Bear Hugs,
