MMSC40 Life Is Like A Bicycle ... Antiqued Card

As I am recovering from our last winter blast and awaiting the next one to hit us tomorrow, I would like to take a short break and share with you my MMSC40 card.  This image is one that has been shared with us by our sponsor Cornish Heritage Farms  They have some very beautiful stamps to choose from.  Drop by their site for a look.  You will fall in love.  We would also like to thank our weekly sponsor:  Stamp and Create for their sponsorship and giveaway this week.  Drop over to the Midnight Madness Blog for all of the details on this and the lastest MM news. 

Congratulations to our MMM and MMR winners this week:

Don't forget that you have a choice of sketches this week.  A CAS sketch that can be found on the MM blog or this one.  Which one would you like to try?  I can't wait to find out!  Thanks for dropping by for a look.  Please leave me a comment and let me know what you think.  I am off now to tend to our winter wonderland out there.  Have a beautiful week!

Carolyn: I love how your side panel is just filled with awesome gorgeous detail. I had to click larger to get the full effect of you lovely work. This is spectacular right down to the tiny detail of the gold eyelash yarn on your sentiment. Simply exquisite!

Fabulous card design for this challenge Carolyn. Love the elegance and the classic look on this layout. You sure have no problem with this sketch, but I couldn't think of an idea for this sketch, so I used the easier one for my challenge card :op
