It's beginning to look. . .

A lot like Christmas. . .   Okay, maybe not so much here in sunny Arizona, but at least the craft stores are decked out in festive glory.  :)

 This month is so exciting at Midnight Madness!  Our November sponsor is Paper Temptress and everyone has absolutely fallen in love with the products. They have Cryogen White Iridescent paper which is perfect for coloring with Copics and their Mica/Metallic line is divine. If you have not tried her papers, just take a look at what the Midnight Madness DT has made this week. We were all spoiled by Patricia and have used her yummy papers on our sample cards.

My wreath stamp is from our weekly sponsor DRS Designs and I am absolutely in love with it!  First I glimmer misted white cardstock with Apple.  Then distressed the edges in Aged Mahogany.  And finally stamped and colored with Copics.

The gorgeous papers from Paper Temptress that I used on this card are:
  1. Rosso Incandescent: OH My Goodness, the sparkle on this red color is goldish and DE-lish!
  2. Ivory Plike: This is softest paper I have ever felt.  Unusual and amazing.  I glimmer misted an oval shape in Crushed Shells.
  3. Khaki Crepe: I love the look of this paper!  I was even able to stamp (with the edge of the wreath) on the FUN texture.  TOO cool!
  4. Gold Pearl Linen: Sparkle, color and texture to flip for let me tell ya!  Hard to tell in my photo, but it's name does it justice.  :)  The background and interior of the card is done in this paper.  I also cut a strip and scalloped the edges to add layer to the diagonal part of my card.
All I added to these beautiful papers was a little ink, some gold glitter glass, tinsel trim and the vintage plastic angel picks.

This weeks's "YOUR PICK" Make it fancy, clean and simple, or somewhere in-between. Remember to click on the sneak peek button on the side bar for the following weeks sketch each Friday.
Enter one style or both this week.
Just have fun and come play with us :)

Holly, this is amazing! I just love what you've done with the dp with the sparkly glimmer mist and how you colored in all those little berries...WOW! Your sweet angels are just precious, they really look metal rather than plastic though! I can see you love the dp as much as everyone else!!!
