Midnight Madness after midnight....


Yes I was up way past my bedtime for this one but I am an adult now and should be able to pick and choose my bedtimes...right? Ok so not so right if I wanna get anything done the next day but the cut out idea slammed into my head right after my head hit the pillow. If you are anything like me, you might as well get up 'cause ya ain't gonna get any sleep now anyhoo!!!

The Midnight Madness Challenge over at Priscillastyles, is a weekly sketch challenge. This week the sketch look something like this. Not exactly like this but then you know me... not one for following the rules to closely. Priscilla gives you a choice of 2 sketches. Basically the same layout just one is fancy frilly and one is scaled down or "Clean and Simple". My card falls pretty much right smack in the middle... go figure.

I started out with the cut out idea alarm going off inside my head. Once I had managed to do that with an exacto and ruler, things started to fall into place. The pattern paper is an oldie but goody from the Current store days. I loved the bargains I got when they closed down but I kinda miss em. The kraft heart had to be stamped twice, my sister still has not returned my white ink pad and the cream just didn't show up as nice. I flipped it over and stamped it with Antique Linen distress ink. After I adhered it to the card, I remembered the cut out part. Truthfully, having the cream poka dots show through looks nice, so neener neener neener....

So this is officially my 3am entry for the MMSC #87.... now I can sleep. I hope.

As always, ENJOY! the Oz

  9. OH my sweet Linda! I'm so behind on all my blog following. I'd had a rough day and so glad I stopped By! You always make me smile if Not Laugh out Loud with everything you say and do. I love the cutout idea, it turned out fabulous! I also love the dots neener neener aka shoulda kept quiet and faked it on purpose as it's a great accent to the buttons.
