The Waiter ~ MMSC42

Well, I had a lot of fun working with this super cute, BRAND NEW image called "the Waiter" from the Friendly Kritters selection over at Cornish Heritage Farms. I stamped it a couple times and then layered the cute Penguin and Polar Bear. Behind the image I used Spellbinders Fancy Tags for that element of this weeks sketch and the pretty designer paper is called "Sea Spray" from M5D. I love how the colors of the paper worked so well with this cute stamp! The picture below is a closer view so you can see those pretty pearls and how I added Icicle Stickles and Glossy Accents to make the iceberg look shiny.
We also have another weekly sponsor, Delicious Doodles, with some delicious goodies to share with you, so be sure to come and play with us this week. Here is this week's Midnight Madness Sketch. As you can see, I decided to turn it sideways this time. :)
Have a great day!

Hi Michelle, what a wonderful card you have made this week. I can always count on you to make something with swirlys or flourish die cute thingys...they alwas look so nice on your cards and this week is no exception. How do you attach them and still make them look 3d? What is your secret? Those are so narrow and hard to glue down. Anyway, it turned out FANTASTIC. Thank you for your help with the MMDT stuff, your input and for sharing your talent each week with us.

Michelle it was a toss up whether I was going to do this bear or the Bear Essentials. I really love how you did this image and gave it dimension, sparkle, and shine. Love how you used the spellbinders fancy tag die too. Simply charming.

Burrr, those little two guys don't seem to mind those low temps but are having some fun. Nicely colored and love how you created the iceberg effect and your swirls in the background - all those details make this card pop. TFS, Jane
