Midnight Madness with the Color Chef

Today is my birthday, and I am feel quite grateful! The day has been filled with well wishes from friends and family, and I've gotten some lovely gifts too. My BFF, Christi, has been my stamping and deployment buddy for a few years now, even though she lives far away. She's enduring the tail end of a deployment right now. She sent me some awesome gifts, because she knows me so well. I got a box of envelopes, because she found them on super sale and we both LOVE a sale. She also sent me this MFT set called Chick Flick along with my newest Nestie, Labels 13! She's the best!

I made this for the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge, and for the Color Chef. The colors over there were Black, Dark Gray, Turquoise, Yellow, & White.
Stamps: Chick Flick (MFT)
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Paper: March KI Kit (TE), Neenah Solar White, Basic Black, Basic Gray
Accessories: Copics, window punch, black stitched ribbon (CDS), Labels 13 Nestabilities, dimensionals
