Midnight Madness Sketch....

Afternoon everyone! I've been poorly for a coupla of days which is why I haven't been on, feeling much better now though. Todays card is for the fabulous Midnight Madness Sketch challenge. If you've never played along over there you should really go check it out-the prizes over there are fab too. I think their challenge blog has the most eclectic of talents on their design team too which is always fun to see! I've used another sugar nellie image from the country cousins range, it's a real cutie isn't it?! Gone for a real vintage feel with the papers and lace around the flower. Gone for my usual distressed touches-I think i'm a distressing junkie!

Stuff: Sugar nellie stamps coloured with promarkers, distress inks, core'dinations cardstock, MME papers and 7gypsies, prima flowers, lace and pin from stash, k and co rub on

Thanks for stopping by and any comments you might leave me-they make my day! Well, I'm gonna go play shape sorters with Leo now he's woken from his nap! Huggles

P.S. Still no sign of the Magnolia summer kit....bleurgh
