My first Midnight Madness Sketch challenge

I'm participating in my first ever Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge this week.  I'm not sure why I've never done any challenges before.  I have sometimes used the sketches for inspiration but never uploaded my cards for any of them.   The challenge this week is sponsored by Sugar Creek Hollow.  I have chosen two SCH images for this card.  I used the bees from Insect tiles and also the oval frame from the Cameo Ladies  set.  I printed the bee tile in black twice so that I could layer and pop up the bee as well as trimming out the crown for my tag and the top of my frame.  For the frame I changed the color to green to match my paper.  In the corners I did some piercing which shows up better in person than it does in the photo.  Of all the SCH images I thing the bee may be my favorite.  It's hard to choose. : )

Card makings...
Digital Stamps: Sugar Creek Hollow
Metal frame & crystal brads
Paper: My Minds Eye 
Vintage ribbon
Piercing tool

Renee, WELCOMMMMMEEEE!!! We are so glad to have you join in the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge. Let me tell you, you will be hooked for life. From the looks of it, you are already MM material. This is a most beautiful card you have created. I LOVE that textile image from SCH that you used. I have 2 of them and am dying to try them out. Instead I used the teacup image from them this week.

Your colors, dp, swirls and that lovely ribbon/charm treatment is such a special touch. I'm truly in love with all the nest details of your card.

Thanks SO MUCH for joining the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge this week and I hope you will share you talent with us again next week!

This is simply gorgeous Renee. I love the sparkles you added to the bee's wings and how you incorporated the SCH cameo frame with it too. Beautiful colors as well.
