Good evening everyone.  I actually managed to squeeze in a little time this evening to get a card made.  Once again we have been working lotsa overtime and I have to work tomorrow as well :(  So as of late my crafting time has been limited.

My card tonight is for this weeks Midnight Madness sketch challenge.  I used this challenge as an excuse to run to Hobby Lobby yesterday for the frame nesties.  While I was there I found the gorgeous dp I've used in this card and it was 40% off!!!

Here is this weeks sketch:
And here is my card:
All the gold caused a bit of a glare but in person these papers are gorgeous!!
The verse is on the inside of the card along with the sentiment-happy anniversary.
Supplies used: Cardstock-The Paper Studio
Dp-The Paper Studio, pad called Simple Elegance-and it is!!
Nestie frame embossed with MS gold metallic ink
gold gemstones also from The Paper Studio
gold leaf leaves from Black Ink
Stampin Up corner punch
Stamps: Inkadinkado

Cupcake Craft Challenge: challenge is to dazzle, sparkle, glitter
Stamptacular Sunday: I Do, I Do, I Do- wedding or anniversary

Ok I am off to bed and yes it's only 9:00 but day 6 for the alarm to go off at 5 tomorrow and it will be a killer!
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
