Spring Buttoned Up MMSC42

This card is for the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge - MMSC42 - found here: http://priscillastyles.blogspot.com/2010/02/midnight-madness-week-42-mmsc42.html. I stamped 3 borders onto the bg and used a printed panel for the main image. I don't know about you all, but I am ready for Spring!!!! tfl

Hey Val, I am with you girl on looking forward to spring. I am not used to this cold weather living in South Georgia...it seems I cannot keep my feet warm...lol I love how clever and creative you got with the sketch this week by stamping your slanted panels...that was ingenious!!! The buttons are so cute on this too! Just wonderful from the image to the extra step of decorating the envelope. Well done! Thank you for playing along with us this week at the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge.

Bear Hugs,

Great bg stamp and I love the boarder embossing.. you are always coming up something new and clever huh? I love visiting you..yes ready for spring :) Oh I just wanted to let you know to mark your calendar for March 5th because that is when the Midnight Madness will be doing a huge giveaway. It will be a blog candy style with comment entries only. No card making on this one, but I really do not want our regular players to miss out on the opportunity to win. You will not be sorry you entered. As always, thank you so much for playing the Midnight Madness sketch challenges with us. We really love checking out all our entries work each week.

How clever of you to stamp the background, looks great! Such a simply beautiful card. Love the image and colors you chose. Border is wonderful and it evokes Spring, which as you mentioned can't come soon enough!! Thanks for joining us at Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge this week and sharing your card with us. Very nice.

Oh how pretty Valerie!! The stamped image behind your image panel is perfect for the diagonals. Gorgeous image and embossing. Awesome take on the sketch!! Thanks for playing with Midnight Madness.
