Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge #86

For my Midnight Madness design card this week, I used cardstocks from MindsEye and Bazzill.  I colored my sparkly flower with Moonglow's Starburst Stains, Edelweiss Moss Green from our sponsor Lindy's Stamp Gang.  I didn't have any red gemstones so I colored clear ones with my red copic marker.  My image was colored and shaded with my copics too.

This weeks sketch...it's "YOUR PICK" Make it fancy, clean and simple, or somewhere in-between. Remember to click on the sneak peek button on the side bar for the following weeks sketch each Friday.
Enter one style or both this week.
Just have fun and come play with us :)
