Ansley's Surprise...

Today is Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge day! We have an interesting sketch this time (see below)! Our sponsor this week is Stamp and Create and our Monthly Sponsor is Sunflowers & Dragonflies!

I stamped "Ansley's Surprise" by Wags 'n Whisker with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Whisper White cardstock, then colored with Copic Markers. I made a template of the puzzle pieces, then traced them over my image with a black pen. My designer paper is from the "Luxury Stack" by Die Cuts with a View, and I used the Iron Gate Corner Punch by Martha Stewart for two of the corners. I added silver pearls, big fluffy satin bows, and a silver paper doiley before adhering it to a dark blue card. Card size: 6 x 6 inches


  1. Hi Darsie - what a fabulous card - I like the way you have used the sketch - it is adorable! Gorgeous image and those bows - they are amazing! Love the colours too Darsie! That Iron gate Punch is 'to die for' (not literally) and the doliy is perfect - well done Darsie - great card for this weeks sketch! {{{hugs}}}

  2. Oh Darsie!! I just love your coloring of this image and your take on the sketch!! The silver lace and the blue bows are the perfect accent.

  3. Darsie, I just love your sweet card this week. The image is colored beautifully and those bows are wonderful!
