MMSC34 - Midnight Madness Sketch

It's another sketch challenge! This one comes from the Midnight Madess Sketch blog. I heard about this site from one of my cards posted on SCS. One of the team invited me to check out the site so I did and found this week's sketch to be a fabulous challenge! It's funky, no? This adorable tree stamp, and sentiment, is from the latest Unity KOTM set and I stamped it on cream cardstock and then painstakingly cut out each leave from color cardstock before attaching to the original stamped image. The sketch called for a flower on the left side of the card but I went with the ruffled ribbon design that Lisa Johnson made famous. I've been itching to do this technique with my ribbon and this was the perfect chance!
The lovely patterned paper is from a Cosmo Cricket paper pack, purchased from Taylored Expressions. I just love these 6x6 paper packs and am toying with replacing all of my 12x12 with these easy to store packs! :-) If you're interested in these weekly sketch challenges, that include prizes, check out Priscilla's blog for all of the details. Now I'm off to get my sketch posted since today is the deadline! :-) Working on a fun project that I'm looking forward to sharing in the next few weeks...I'll post some sneak peeks soon!
