Howling Hearts and Flowers

I've finally gotten around to howling with the Midnight Madness Challenge MMSC36. Those pesky holidays can get in the way of playtime. It's a shame you can't make cards and celebrate with your family and friends at the same time. Since you can't you gotta sit and be sociable cause if you don't spend any time with them you probably won't have much need for cards.
Okay, it's late and I'm not coming up with anything funny to say so I'm going straight for the info.
I combined the Midnight Madness challenge with a couple others, the Simon Says Challenge - Shabby Chic and the Crafty Creations Challenge #50 - Textures and the Copic Colour challenge #46 (which I just realized is last week's challenge but that's where I got the colors so it gets listed.)
Here's the deets: the dp is K & Co "Life's Journey". The cs is DCWV, it's punched with the Martha Stewart Lace Hearts border punch. The stamp is "My Funky Valentine" from Impression Obsession. It's stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with copics then Ranger Distress Tea Dye was sponged onto it. It was cut out with a Spellbinder's heart shaped nestibility and the cs was cut with a scalloped hearts nestie. The edges of the dp were also sponged with the Tea Dye ink. Some of the lines and dots in the image were highlighted with a gelly roll pen. The flower is from Prima.
Thanks for visiting.
