This is my third and final card for this week's Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge....I thought I would try something different and not use any stamps - just rely on this fabulous DP that I was given by my friend Melinda80!
My aim was to give depth and texture to the feel of the card. I sponged around the edges of the DP and layered in on black...I had added strips of Paisley Embossing behind the image, sponging them both - the blue with white over all of the embossing, the pink with green around the edges. A scalloped border was added, the edges lightly sponged and had bling added. The scrolls at the top and bottom are a Cuttlebug Die.
There you have it...a fairly simple card, but I really like the different textures...and that DP...it was enough on it's own!! I love trying different things.

Well, with punching, piercing, die cuts and lots of shiny brads, who needs stamps! The pretty DP just stands out as a great focal point (I thought you may have used stamps to make it when I first glanced at it) and your card is wonderful. Great sketch card. :)
