Midnight Madness Sketch

Good Afternoon Everyone! It's Tuesday and my house is still a wreck since the weekend. I have neglected it lately with it being summer and all the kids home. So I thought today I would try and get some stuff done. We will see how that goes. LOL

I decided today I would try out the Midnight Madness Sketch. I changed it just a little bit with a rectangle sentiment instead of the oval. I really wanted to try out this stamp set I purchased from Stampin Up. Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you enjoy the rest of your day!

Here's the Recipe

Courage - SU Stamp Set - Stamped in Stazon Black, and sentiment stamped in Red Riding Hood Ink

Whisper White Cardstock
Basic Black Cardstock
Karen Foster Designer Paper and Flag Sticker

SU Scallop Punch Border

Misc. Black Ribbon

Your card is great, I would have thought that the theme is quite a hard one to do, I think I'd have struggled with that one. But yours is Brilliant.
Happy crafting

Crystal, this card is beautiful! I love how you used just the flag color to depict the seriousness of the card. I had thought about purchasing this set, but would probably only use it once as I have an idea for a "PHOTO" card, but will see if I can find a similar image to use on it. Beautifully done!!!!!

Kim Y. said...

Wow, how beautiful is this??!!

Judith said...
