Goodnight, Lida for Midnight Madness 18



Gosh I am running late!!! I have had a few problems with elderly parents...soooooo a very Happy Tuesday to you!!! I had so much difficulty with this sketch over at Midnight Madness this past week, but I was determined to make a card with it.

I used Bazzill CS for the base, all matting is PTI, and the sparkly DP is unknown. I made use of that darling Goodnight, Lida which is a Papilio stamp from Norway and I think they are just precious!!!! She is stamped twice, colored with Copics, cut out and propped up on dimensional tape. I used star buttons and moon and added yellow rhinestones for some sparkle...Although you can't see it in the picture I did add tiny yellow silk ribbon behind the star buttons...I searched everywhere for buttons that would match those on Lida's gown...lol. Finally I added primas and a couple of little yellow roses from Crafty Feeling, some punched MS branches, and last, but not least, a wee, tiny teddy bear charm to match the one Lida is holding!!! You know I had to have a charm somewhere...lol

I have not completed the inside yet but will add that later.

Thank you so much for dropping by today to check out my little corner of the world...so please come back soon and see how my Maggies are doing...Big hugs to everyone!!!
