Midnight Madness MMSC62

Although I have been a follower of Priscilla Styles's blog for a while, I haven't been active there for a while. This week though, I have at last finished a card on time. There is a choice of sketches and I have chosen the fancier one of the two because it suited the image better. The papers were a gift, so unfortunately I don't know the source. Pieced onto pearlised white. The flowers are homemade. The butterflies are from Priscilla Styles. Decoupaged after colouring in with PM's and edged with stickles. The ribbon from stash. Pink is not normally a colour I use but I have a couple of birthdays coming up that I need to make cards for and this will definately be one of them.


  1. I love your colors and of course your image is FABULOUS * wink wink* What a wonderful entry and Great take on the sketch too. Thank you so much for playing the Midnight Madness sketch challenges.

  7. Beautiful card! I too love the coloring you did on Priscilla's butterfly. I've done a few of them myself but I really like what you've done here.

  8. What a gorgeous card you made, Helen. I love the color combination - the white and black make the pink stand out so wonderfully! Thanks so much for your constant support and wonderful comments on Tellen's Place. It is always so encouraging. Lyn and I aren't taking holiday because we don't want followers to be bored with silence - we're trying a new format - so hope it all works out. Funny you have such cold weather and here it is blazing hot! Ugh! You wouldn't need a coat here - trust me! Sending you some warmth and sunshine, my friend. :-)
