MMSC#101 Counting down to 200 ;o)




It is my favorite time of the week again! It is early tuesday morning here in Sunny Norway and it is time for a new week of
Midnight Madness! 
You know summer just came suddendly last week - we just skipped spring and went right for summer. Normally the trees don't get green until mid may, but they are already bursting. We have had warmer weather here in Norway this week than in Spain.... that is unusual I tell you! 
But who really cares about the weather - we have sketches to follow and cards to make ;o)
Last week was sketch number 100 - now we start the countdown to 200.
As always it is your choice:





Enter one style or both this week.
Just have fun and come play with us :)

For my card this week I have used a lot of orange. The backround is made with the Belle Brocade art stencil from Layers of Color, sponged with Distress ink I think I used Spiced Marmelade or Dried Marigold - don't really remember at the moment. 






 

This lovely metal butterfly is from Kort og Godt




 
The stamped leafs are from Layers of Colors, the flowers and green leafs from Wild Orchid Crafts  and the butterfly is from Kort og Godt.

Nok et herlig kort fra deg Gunn!!! Jeg beklager at jeg ikke har fått vært innom, har virkelig "kranglet" med dataen den siste mnd, samtidig som jeg har hatt masse å gjøre.
Håper alt er bra med deg og at du nyter våren om dagen. Her er det helt herlig, grønt og masse blomster.
Ønsker deg en fin uke!
Klem Guro
