Hello all.  I have a very quick post.  I think I am actually getting this card in late but I am never sure of time zones, lol.  Mr Linky says I have 23 hrs but I don't think that is right. So I'll either get in under the wire or I won't.  The sad thing is this card has been sitting on my desk completed for over a week!

I have been commissioned to make 75-100 wedding invitations!! So I have been very busy.  I completed 4 sets of samples that I will be taking to the bride this weekend.  I hope I haven't bitten off more than I can chew, lol!!  At least she is into a very simple, clean style.  Black & White!! My favorite.

Ok on to my card.  It is for this weeks Midnight Madness challenge.  I loved this weeks sketch!!

My papers are all by the Paper Studio and this is one of my faves from them. I love the black & gold.  My image is from Digital Design Divas.  Her name is Princess Vera and I just love her regal look.  I am afraid I didn't do her little skirt much justice though, lol.  I used a metallic gold pen on the swirls of her skirt before I colored black and the colors just didn't blend well.  Oh well, I still love her.

Ok gotta run and get this entered!  Have a great evening.

Hi Janice, I know the time zone problem..that is why I set the deadline and then always leave it open a little longer for those late or confused people..LOL You are fine and made it in time. I was not able to get to comment right away though, but I am here now. You have created a wonderful card. I love our image too. Congrads on your order too..I hope they are paying you well :) Such a wonderful entry and great take on the sketch too. Thank you so much for playing the Midnight Madness sketch challenges.
