MMSC46 - Sadie's Floral Hat

It's Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge time! Here we are at week #46 already! I can not believe 46 weeks have gone by! Seems like just yesterday it all began! Then again...time flies when you are having FUN!

For this week's sketch, I used Sadie's Floral Hat by D'Amour Allure stamps...this weeks Sponsor. Thanks, Jeni! :)

For the corner flourish on the sketch, I used some of Prima's NEW Swirl Pearls with Fimo Roses! We saw these at CHA in LA in January and oh my, I was in love. There is nothing like Prima's swirl pearls but add in these sweet, delicate roses...WOW! They are so easy to use too! Peel them off the acetate sheet and stick them where you want them. Super easy! Super beautiful!

I thought Miss Sadie need some 'bling' around her neck. These cute circle black pearl designs from Kaisercraft were just the ticket for making a necklace. :)

The last of the Prima swirl pearls that I used above. I had to shorten up their design to fit on my card. Priscilla's sketch used a ribbon on that corner and if I'd used one it would have covered up her necklace. I thought these 'left overs' were the perfect touch.

A little touch of stunning Prima Lace along the side to finish it off. The papers I used are Kaisercraft Satin and Bazzill textured card stock.
Congratulations to our WINNERS this week! Our monthly sponsor is still the FABULOUS Priscillastyles and our weekly sponsor is D'Amour Allure!
Have a great week!
