Big on Big Shot

Sparkleplenty100 kindly invited me to join in on the Midnight Madness sketch challenges today and I actually did it. I didn't think I'd be able to pull it off while babysitting for my niece, but she took a nice nap and my DD is being an awesome babysitter! I'm not exactly on target with the sketch as I used an oval instead of a rectangle for the main image, but I think you'll see the resemblance to the sketch. I also enjoyed participating in the color challenge on SCS from yesterday: Baha Breeze, Ruby Red and Whisper White. I hadn't used Baha Breeze in a while, and needed to for a final hurrah! I managed to just squeeze the Ruby Red in there on the sentiment. TFL!

The flowers are all punched out of glossy white cardstock- mostly just because it was laying here, but I like the extra shine it adds. I think I'd like this a touch better without the bracket at the top right, but I felt I should use it in order to follow the sketch provided- especially since there are prizes involved! ;)

Thanks for stopping by. I may be MIA the rest of the week until Sunday or Monday due to babysitting. In case you're wondering, she's 21 months old and I'm well beyond that age with my own so I just know I'm going to be worn out! Thanks for bearing with me and have a great weekend!
