Cinemas Saturday Challenge #33-Ever After and Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge

I did this card for 2 challenges. Of course I love to do cards for the Cinema Saturday Challenge and this week was the movie Ever After. I wanted to do a card with soft colors. I loved Drew Barrymore in the beautiful butterfly dress and she had to have imagination to get the Prince! I stamped and distressed everything in Sahara Sand. I colored everything with chalks. The girl and saying are Invoke Arts. The butterflies are fontwerks and the flourish is Queen Kat Designs and the papers are Creative Memories. I added a clear butterfly from Heidi Swapp and ribbon from my stash.You were supposed to include a flourish so I put one in the bottom right corner. I had fun making this card!

Sue McMahon told me that she is a design team member for Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge and invited me to try one of their sketches. This is MMSC2. There is a link to their site on my blog. Check it out, there are a lot of talented people there. Thanks for stopping by!
