My post today brings bittersweet feelings, as it is my last week with the illustrious design team of the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge :(

The ladies there are some the most talented,fun and wonderful women I have had the pleasure to call friends. They have inspired SO many, including myself, and I hope you will continue to follow the "madness" as I definitely will!

These are the sponsors this week/month who are offering up some fab prizes!

My card was inspired by the sketch below and is dedicated to Priscilla - the Midnight Madness Mistress - who tolerated my always late submissions with the patience of a saint, who works tirelessly on making each week super exciting for everyone, who is a smart, sweet, strong, dedicated wife, mother & friend, and of course LOVES the color purple!

For this card I've used beautiful dp from the Far East Stack by DCWV, an image by Inkadinkado, flowers by Prima & MakingMemories, half pearls by Recollections, a pretty charm and my invaluable nesties & sewing machine . . .

I used a mask and sprayed my image with a French Lilac Starburst Spray that I received from Lindy's Stamp Gang. It has a beautiful shimmer, though it's hard to capture in photos. Let me know what you think!

Make sure to check out what the rest of the team has created and don't forget! COMING THIS FRIDAY -
