Here is this week's Sketch and my Design Team Creation:

For this weeks card I have created a bright and cheery card using Bold colors and lots of texture. I used several paper manufactures that complimented the Vintage balloon from Sugar Creek Hollow. For the card base I used 7 gypsies Lille paper. I printed my image on kraft cardstock and layered a second image using some DCWV tradewinds designer paper. I accented with some ruffled black trim, a flower cut from brown lace, a handmade stickpin and some vintage themed ephemera. I stitched a few areas to give more texture and 3 buttons to finish the sketch.

The inside was kept fairly simple for lots of room for a Note to the card recipient.

Stop on by the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge Blog to check out all my Design team sisters in their amazing creations!

Thanks for stopping By Have a Happy Crafty Day!
