Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge #20

Happy Tuesday everyone. Welcome to my blog and my favorite day of the week because it is Midnight Madness Sketch ChallengeTuesday. The best challenge on the net!!! Please check Priscilla's Blog for all the fun happenings that are going on in the next month. You won't want to miss a single thing!!!

At this time, I would like to thank our sponsor for the month of September, DRS Designs, Inc. I have really enjoyed working with some of their stamps this month. Our sponsor for this week is Michelle's Scrapbooking & More. When you have a moment, please stop by her store and see all the wonderful products she has for your crafting needs.

Here is this weeks sketch for the challenge.
I had fun with this sketch. I haven't done a bear in a while and knew I just had to do something with one this week. Since fall is in the air, it's time to pair up my bears with seasonal items like this plump pumpkin and cute black cat. I took the liberty of flipping this sketch so I could do this paper piecing. My image has been cut out of card stock, inked on the edges and paper pieced with lots of pop dots and foam circles and squares. The corner pieces on the card are a DRS Design stamp F696 Daisy Corner that I embossed with gold EP and cut then popped for dimension.I embossed the background paper with a circles embossing folder, used EK Success border punch Fleur de Lis. I did some machine stitching around the outside of the card. My leaves were punched from metallic card stock. I had a few of these leaf brads left over from last year, just enough to finish off my card.

Thanks for stopping by today and checking out my blog. I appreciate and enjoy all your comments. May I invite you to join me at the Masquerade Ball this Friday Night September 25, 2009 at 7 p.m. at Split Coast Stampers for a Mini VSN. I am co-coordinator for this session of Virtual Stamp Night and am hosting the 9 p.m. challenge. There will be another Mini on Saturday, October 24, 2009 starting at 12 p.m. and the main event Friday November 13, 2009 starting at 7 p.m. and Saturday November 14, 2009 starting at 11 a.m. Should be lots of fun! Hope to see you there!!!

Hugs,
Carol
