Let It Snow ~ MMSC13

Hello and welcome to this week's Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge! This month we have a few brand new sponsors... We'd like to welcome Simon Says Stamp! to our fun group. They have graciously provided us with some really fun treats which of course we will be sharing with you in the form of more fun prizes. :) And in addition, we are also thrilled to have Scor-Pal as a weekly sponsor for this week. Thank you Simon Says Stamp and Scor-Pal for your generosity.
We've been swealtering here in the Southwest under blistering heat for the past few weeks, so I decided to try and cool off by imagining the beautiful winter snow.
I've had lots of fun with gold embossing powder and iridescent glitter this week as you can see. And also, this week my inspirations piece is a wall decoration rather than a card. I got quite carried away with the beads and rhinestones on this one! :) And being the wanna-be-rebel that I am, I also tweaked the sketch just a bit by reducing the squares from 12 down to 9. Now it's your turn! Be sure to check out the rest of the Midnight Madness team's inspirations too, including our very first Guest Designer Diva, Melissa! And remember, we are continuing the search for monthly Guest Designing Divas, so please leave a comment on the Midnight Madness Blog and we will put you on our list for September if you are interested in joining us! We'd love to have you!

WOW, this is scrumptdillious!!! All that glitter and bling. Holy Cow where did you get those snowflake beads..they are awesome. This is like looking at an ice cream cone in 110 degree heat and humidity here in Georgia. lol Dripping all that ice (glitter) and coolness (color). So beautiful I can't stand it. I am drooling all over my hard wood floors. What a fantastic creation this week. Sure do appreciate looking at your creativity. It really makes my day!!!
Bear hugs,

I'm always a fan of bling . . . I really like this! And you must be channeling your inner Northern gal to be able to create this card in the sunny southwest!

Sue said...

What a pretty wall hanging. Love the soft pastel colors and all the bling. Lots of work, well worth it.
