Moonlighting MMSC65

When Bob and I sat down to read the newspaper yesterday, my eye was instantly drawn to the photo at right, and my mind said "CARD!!!!!" hehe I know, kinda scary, but here's my card, inspired by that photo.

I used the sketch from Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge - MMSC65 - which I found in the Sneak Peek section at priscillastyles. Love that she gives us a sneak peek so we can use it when we're inspired! The challenge is now up here: http://priscillastyles.blogspot.com/2010/08/midnight-madness-sketch-challenge-65.html.

The bird on the wire image is a freebie from the "deliciousdoodles" group at Crafters Digital Art Center. You can find it here: http://priscillastyles.ning.com/group/deliciousdoodles. I used my Scrapbook Factory Deluxe program to arrange 2 of them and make the "moonlighting" title (Bob's idea, by the way, isn't he clever??!!). Then made a mask with post-its for the moon and over the title, sprayed with Glimmer Mist, then dried with heat gun. Matted on black glitter paper and doily. Mounted on some of my favorite dp, black-white polka dotted ribbon and bow, and Voila!!! Moonlighting! tfl
