MMSC #48 - the simple version

Further to this morning's post, here's another attempt with the same paper but a bit of what I like best too... BLACK!!  And I dont know that it works either, maybe my mojo has up and gone walkabout, maybe the paper didn't inspire me, maybe I should just stick to black and white. 

I was so pleased to see a simple layout from Priscilla that I seized it and was cutting paper and ribbon when I should have been getting dressed to go out, but I was only a little bit late afterall.  

This is for the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge which I love because of its name before anything else.  I chose the simpler layout because I struggle with bows and embellishments.  The DP is the last interesting bit of Tangerine Flowers, and there is even a cuttlebugged layer under it all.  Ribbon and foil bits from the come-in-handy box, and some decoupage cutting practice in evidence too.


  1. Hi Chat - it is great to have you with us at the MMSC this week! Great DP - it works perfectly with the black and that gorgeous ribbon! Those foil bits are great!!
