MMSC11 Butterfly Lace Sunflower Collage Card









Before I start my post, I want to congratulate Grace N. on your masterpiece award this week. Your card was amazing. Thanks for sharing your talents with us. Also congratulations to my DT sister Kimmie for her mischief award which she so diligantly earned ; ) with her fun and risky cards. Please visit Priscilla's blog for all the news this week. One exciting thing to share from her blog is:

Each of her enchanted and inspirational fairies, mermaids, goddesses and angels share these wonderful things with the world.Michelle started her "World of Enchantment and Inspiration" in 2004. Before that she began her art career working as an active duty graphic artist in the United States Air Force and then in the corporate world for 10 years.

I am so excited to share with you that coming soon, Michelle's enchanting designs will be made available as rubber stamps and digital stamps! I for one, will be first in line to get some. You can see her at her Etsy Shop. Thank you so much Michelle for being our sponsor this week and your very GENEROUS prize give away of your
“Enchanted Inspiration Fairy Collection Set


Ok, now on to my post:


This was definately another of Priscilla's work-for-it challenge cards for me. I made two attempts at this sketch before I was happy with the result, but after the work was done, it was worth it as it always is. I took the pictures with a dark background and a light background to see the different effect that you can get and shared one of each on here for you to see. I am really excited to see what you guys come up with for this sketch. Put on your creative thinking caps, and have a go at it. It really is fun once you get started.
I would like to enter this one into A spoon full of sugar challenge and Stampin' B's Challenge #15 this week too.
Thanks for dropping by, and please leave me a comment to let me know that you came by for a visit and what you think of my card.
Have a great week!
