Here is my challenge entry for "Midnight Madness" Sketch Challenge #58. The sketch and challenge details can be found HERE. Seeing as there is a new "Twilight" movie just around the corner and it IS one of my favorite book series, I thought I would make my card based on it. The sketch was either saying Halloween or Twilight and with Twilight being closer it won! The chess piece was fashioned out of white sparkle Fimo clay. I stamped the image onto the clay ( I omitted some of the deals of the image) and then cut out around the outline. After baking, I gave it a layer of crystal effects and sprinkled some clear glitter on top. The roses were made from a 5 petal punch. 4 layers were hot glued together to form the rose. The paper was first stamped with a script design. In keeping with the Twilight theme I used a bat and a paw border punch to represent both sides!

The Details:

Stamps:     Artful Inkables "Into the Moonlight", a diamond background stamp source unremembered, SU "French Script" background.

Paper:       Bazzill, Neenah Solar Crest

Ink:          Memento Tuxedo Black, Ranger Distress Ink Black Soot

Other:      Fimo Clay, Zing EP Black, MS glitter Onyx, MS glitter Crystal Fine, EK Success Border Punches Paw and Bat, McGill Flower punch, Wishblade  electronic cutter, Black brads covered with glitter, Small rosebud colored red from "Wild Orchid Crafts", Wright's Flexi lace hem facing in red. Decorative scissors.
