Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge #23

Here is my card for this weeks MMSC#23. This sketch really gave my brain a serious workout !! Whew!! I finally decided on using the BG Indian Summer dsp along with SU's IN colors of Razzleberry, Durango, Curry and Melon. I used a stamp from G Studio and stamped it with Versafine Onyx Black, then embossed it with detail clear. I colored it with glittered markers, and after it was dry I added some Champagne shimmer paint. It still needed something more, so I finally added some magenta stickles. I added a crocheted flower and button, tying the button with the same piece of embroidery floss I made the flower from. Some ribbon and a few gold pearls later and this card was finally done!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great evening!

The color coordination is phenomenal on this beauty. I love you little crochet flower, you are a girl after my own heart. I love making them and using them on my cards. Very pretty card that just makes me smile looking at it. Thanks for playing MMSC this week. I also really appreciate your leaving comments on my cards. That is so sweet of you and really makes my day that much more brighter knowing you took time to tell me how you liked it. See you at the blog hop tomorrow!!!

Love your 'for you' card, the colors are so vibrant, the flower you colored is wonderfully colored and sparkled and the crocheted flower, I love it, did you make it? Great card to give and receive.
