Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge #25

Well, I've decided to take a chance and participate in a Card Sketch Challenge.  I love the Midnight Madness Sketches, and this week's submission was defininately up my alley.  Could be because I've been hooked on circles lately.  I will be submitting this card to MMSC25.  I have to fess up here... I've been playing with my stamps, digi stamps and my copics... I am totally addicted - you have no idea!  I can sit and color for hours.  I have decided that I definitely prefer digital stamps over regular stamps only because I can print them out on my laser printer and take them with me anywhere - and I don't have to wait over a week for my stamps to arrive - talk about instant gratification!  Yes, this small store owner still shops everywhere - LOL.  Part of my mission in supporting other small companies like mine.  Anyway, My first digital stamp was from Mo's Digital Pencil titled "Swine Flu".  I just lover her illustrations!  They have so much character and they are so much fun to color.

Here is my entry for MMSC #25.  This card was created on a 6"x6" card base.  I used bazzill cardstock, both canvas and bling textures.  The image is a digital stamp called Brigitta with Sunflower from CC Designs that I found HERE.  Isn't she just darling?   I just love these images!  Brigitta was colored and shaded with Copic Markers.  I added some Stardust Stickles to her wings.  Papers are from Dream Street that can be found HERE,  I added some pretty Prima Flowers and some Bazzill Ribbon to finish off the card.

I had so much fun creating this card.  Now I have to go figure out how to link and use that Mr. Linky feature - LOL.

Thanks for stopping by... I promise to start posting on a regular basis really soon.
