Midnight Madness & Fred, She Said Crocus...

Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge has a very fun and detailed sketch this week! See the sketch below! I used Fred, She Said's newest "Spring Flower" Crocus for my main image! When you purchase the digistamp set, you'll get Snowdrops, the Crocus, a Daffodil and Tulips along with a Paper Piercing frame!

I printed the Crocus on Whisper White cardstock, cut it out with a Nestabilities Circle, then sponged Memento New Sprout ink on the edges before removing it from the die. I colored my image with Copic Markers, then mounted it to a glittery purple Scalloped Circle piece. I then adhered the image panel to a circle I had punched with the Martha Stewart Eyelet Lace corner punch. My designer papers are from Die Cuts with a View "Baby Boy -Nursery" stack and another paper I got from AC Moore. The side panels with the punched edge is an EK Success Edge Punch called Scrolls & Hearts. I made my "laces" with brads and self-adhesive pearls, then finished the card with more pearls for accents! Card size: 5 1/4 x 7 1/4 inches

  3. Wow what a take on the sketch, I love this, I love how you used the stones for the thread also. How did you do the corner punch and make it into a circle? Inquiring minds want to know. LOL

  4. I just love this card. Your techniques are so pretty and it would make such a beautiful Mother's Day card. Would you please share how you made the edging of the circle with the corner punch. I am so happy I ran into your blog through Fred She Said which is one of my favorite sites. Thanks

  5. Darcie,
    Your card is most beautiful. Love the papers and your brads with the lace up rhinestones!! Your lace edge is wonderful as is the 'new to me' edge punch. Simply gorgeous!
