Our daily bread challenge and Midnight madness


Our challenge today at ODBD was to make a Mother's day card. The sketch layout was by Midnight madness Priscilla's blog. I used the roses from ODBD design's new set, colored with copics, added some glitz by using my new Martha Stewart around the card butterfly punch and her little butterflies to accent. Some bling was added and pretty paper.

Oh how lovely!!! I would be so happy to get something like this for Mothers Day! Thanks for joining us this week over at Midnight Madness. Would love to see what you come up with for next weeks sketch. Tracy, MMDT

WOW The first card is SO elegant. Karen the colors are magical...it looks like a wedding bouquet that would be so delicately made. I love the idea of the pics...it would last for a lifetime! It is hard to believe that is not a picture of something that came from a true photograph...I have no idea how you came up with that other than to say it is absolutely stunning. The next cards are glorious to look at! Your coloring with all the variety of medium you use are so rich and vibrant. You have been working very hard it looks like! Oh, the wedding....Just stunning....Ahhhh!!
