Practice makes perfect



My entry in last week's Macabre Monday was not quite Gruesome Twosome quality. If you take a look at the talent represented in the entries, you will completely understand. I am in AWE with what I see. However, I DID win the random prize drawing so certainly no complaints!! I love this one because not only do I get to see a lot of different styles, but I get to play with some of my favorite stamps year round, just because :)!

I have combined stamps from two different places. The girl is Prom Queen from Stampotique- they have a BUNCH of these I love! and the wings are from the Butterfly Queen set from Bombshell Stamps. I hope you get a better glimpse of the gold Glimmer Mist on the close up.

Challenges:
Macabre Monday #022 - Fallen Angel
Mojo Monday #122 - Sketch
Sketchy Colors #7 - Brown & Turquoise
Creative Inspirations #43 - New- Prom Queen is a new stamp!

I love the wings - I am totally in love with dark butterflys. So I have no choice but to admire your card. I am also a fan of the Torrente stamps. Also think that you used a great sketch for your card - and beautiful colors!!
