Wheelbarrow Blossoms and Faux Flower Soft

  I used the Sketch at Midnight Madness as the inspiration for my sketch elements with my floral delighful card- a newly released digi from McMahon Five Designs..

  The image was colored with Copic markers. I used the Madeline line of Prisma papers and Spellbinders Parisian Motifs and Parisian Accents in Brown.  I did a touch of stitching on the card in brown and added Kaisercraft Self Adhesive Pearls and Prima Madeline Roses, Prima Pink Mini Roses, and Prima Warm Beige Lace tot he card.
  I added punched leaves from the bird punch (SU) and the Sentiment is Create with TLC.  My final accent is Faux Flower Soft- isn't this fun?

  I will be posting a tutorial tomorrow- I gathered up some stryofoam and reinkers, Glimmer Mist, Creative Inspirations Paint, color the stryofoam Faux Flower Soft.  I also used a Technique Junkies Technique called Out of the Box on the card.

 Next, I made up a CAS card with the new Awareness Freebie from McMahon Five

 The DSP and pink card stock are SU. The sentiment is Create with TLC.  The image is encircled with Spellbinders Lacey Circles. I colored the image with Copics.  
Grab the blinkie on my sidebar and whip up an Awareness card!  There are alot of great charities that would love to recieve these cards for their patients/clients to send to providers.

 Finally, a Freebie digi sentiment HERE.   (There is a whole page of freebies to check out at McMahon Five Designs -look HERE).

 Studio 313 is the Monthly Sponsor at the Midnight Madness Sketch challenge this month, and also has a recycle challenge at the HotSpot. She is offering lots of chances to win!
