Hey Prettie Peeps...
I am feeling WAY under the weather today and my week is a bit screwed up...it's just one thing after another it seems! I haven't been able to get much done in the way of stamping as I've had a kiddo or two home sick as well, but I had a blast making my challenge card this week for Paper Pretties!
A while back, Danielle issued the Prettie Girls a challenge to use different textures on our cards, but ribbon and flowers didn't count as one. Ahem...have you MET me? LOL! I LOVE my flowers and ribbon! Now, I did sneak a nice grosgrain in, but I used lots of other fun textures, including dry embossing, brads, some hardware, and some shimmerz in Pixie Dust which just might be my new favorite color! Oh, and I added liquid pearls which are very textur-y as well :) There was talk about me using some marshmallows...but I didnt' have any :( hee hee. I also popped up the 2nd layer on some dimensionals to really give this card some lift. I'm not one to round my corners either so this card is really not my norm, but I wanted to give it a whirl while I was thinking of it. What do you guys think?
I just love our new Ballerina Sophia stamp. She is just too precious and is the March Stamp of the Month so make sure you sign up before the 28th! Want to know more about the Stamp of the Month? Go HERE.
I was also able to use the VLVFeb01 sketch this week as it included dry embossing. Gotta love when that happens! Be sure to stop by the other Prettie Girls blogs and hey, feel free to play along! Links are on my sidebar.
If you love a good challenge, there is always the weekly challenge on the Paper Clip as well! Stay tuned as I will be posting it soon. There are prizes each week in the form of a $5 gift certificate to the Pretties Boutique, so if you've had your eye on something, you just might win a credit there! Be sure to leave a comment here too if you play along so that I can ooh and ahhh over your creations!
Have a Prettie Wednesday!
