MMSC #68

Hi, Just a quick post today as I am in a rush - so much happening and so little time to do it in :-)

I have made this card for the Midnight Madness Challenge #68  and I must admit I took a few liberties with the design.  I used the Chandelier image from priscillastlyes store , and added some dimension and sheen using dimensional magic on the lamps.

Instead of lacing the side panel I punched both sides of the gold paper and layered it onto black, and then added the same punched edge to the corner of the main image.  To add some glamour I attached rhinestones to both pieces.

The main image was sponged with a yellow ink, mounted on gold and then black,  the top corner was pierced before I layered it and the gold shows through - much to my delight.

I am linking this to

Thanks for calling by - I appreciate your visits and your comments are treasured.

Have a blessed day.

Maxine this is just gorgeous. I love the gold accents and paper piercing(one of my favorite looks on crafter's cards) The "priscillastyles" chandelier looks incredibly magnificent. Great job with the sketch this week. Thank you so much for playing along with the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge.

Maxine the way you have just a portion of the border punch peeking from the edge of you image panel is so wonderful. Why don't I ever think of things like this, so creative! Thanks for inspiring me girlfriend. I hope all is well with that grandbaby and DH. I will pray for DH tonight. I can only image how difficult is to suffer from breathing problems. Have a wonderful week my sister.
