I was able to get to the MM challenge this week. Okay, Priscilla, I got your message of encouragement on this week's sketch. It was kind of a challenge, but I always enjoy the outcomes, so it's worth it. Check out the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenges here:
They have great prizes every week and there's a blog hop that ends Tuesday with lot of prizes, so check it out!!
The Sarah Kay image was a RAK I received from Stamp Muse (Thanks M). I paired it with Basicgrey patterned paper called Wisteria/Violet and perfect plum. I used mostly colored pencils with a blender pen for the image and chalks with a sponge dauber on the blue sky and brown ground. The b/g coloring may have gotten washed out in the photo and I was so proud of myself for adding the sponged b/g!! LOL!!!
I changed up the side pieces a bit because I couldn't handle them being different angles - must be an OCD problem - so I opted to used my oval nesties angled at different points and added bling to those. I added a white ribbon with some rhinestone hearts and a flower treatment on the bottom right corner. I paper pierced the patterned paper, but it's hardly noticeable. I also used the textile ef on the 3 oval patterned paper pieces. Added a teeny tiny sentiment angled in the right corner. And, that's it!!
Thanks so much for looking and if you have a quick moment, let me know what you think!

Pammy, you have just knocked my socks off with this card! You have colored it so beautifully and love all the bling. Your side panels are just perfect. That was a great idea to use those oval nesties. The paper is just so sweet to go along with this image from M and I know she'll be so proud of what you did with it. You are rockin', Pam. Love it so much!
