exciting news!

I'm so stinkin' excited! As I'm sure you all know, I've been participating in the Weekly Challenges on the Midnight Madness blog! Well, I was notified two weeks ago, that I had been chosen to join their Design Team! Imagine me trying to keep it secret! It was tough, let me tell you! Today is my first official day as one of their members and I've had a chance, in the last two weeks, of getting to know the other designers! They are so much fun and such a crazy bunch! I should fit right in, I think!  Now, on to my card!

The sponsor this week for the Midnight Madness Challenge is Michelle Perkett and she's giving a $20.00 shopping spree to a lucky winner! Our monthly sponsor is Sunflower & Dragonflies! You can learn all about these chances to win on the Midnight Madness Challenge Blog!

I printed my image onto Whisper White cardstock, cut it out with a new Nestabilities Labels, then sponged Memento Summer Sky, and Paris Dusk on the edges before removing it from the die. I colored with Copic Markers, then added some glitter to the fairy's dress and wings for a bit of bling. My designer paper is from My Mind's Eye, Yellow and White Glittery cardstock all mounted to a dark blue card. I added my satin ribbons and bows, and topped them off with star buttons! A few gold rhinestones in the buttons, and my card was finished! Won't you play along with this challenge? The sketch is below, and you can add your creation to the Midnight Madness Challenge Blog (this is the direct link to the challenge)!


  1. Darsie, this is an awesome way to make a digi. I love the idea of cutting it out later, I don't tend to do that. (what an amateur I am) But I especially love the glittery dress as it has quite a bit of depth. Great job!

  2. Congratulations Darsie, well deserved!!!!

  3. This is beautiful Darsie! I just love your coloring and the sweet image! Your ribbon and stars are perfect! Stunning take on the sketch! Welcome to the team!

  4. Congratulations Darsie! I'm sure you'll dazzle them over at MMSC as much as you do to us here all of the time!

    I love what you did with Michelle's Sleepytime Fairy! What beautiful coloring & such beautiful DP! The bows add that special touch that you always give to all of your projects!
