Pretties Wednesday: What a SCORE!

...and WHAT a score it was as I watched history in the making last night...I will never forget the way it felt being enveloped in it... Enough about that for now, though...I've got a new (...and BLUE!) card to show you right now!

A few weeks ago the wonderful Jackie Pedro of our Paper Pretties Design Team issued a challenge to the rest of the Prettie Girls to make a card featuring scoring.

I chose to put my score-pal to work for this card by using it two ways:

I decided to make a gatefold card, so I scored it appropriately according to the gatefold lines which are oh-so-convenient right on the score-pal!

I then used it to "emboss" a frame around my adorable little Flutter By Sophia. I love this look. Just a simple raised frame can add so much to what you are making.

Thanks for stopping by today and for being so awesome!
Be sure to stop by the other Prettie Girls' blogs too to see what other tips you can "score" from this awesome challenge! The links to these fabulously talented ladies are right here on my sidebar...----->>

Last but not least, want to do some major shopping at 75% off??? Paper Pretties is moving and needs to clear out inventory...NOW!
