Prettie Wednesday - Great Challenges!!


For Charlie's challenge issued last week to use one embellishment (yikes) I chose to use my Simply Special set, love this watering can! My inspiration was to use the DCWV Summer Glitter stack-I really liked the bright colors in it! I am going to send this card to Jessie - she is the RAK queen, which is one reason she got a part-time job at the post office in her little town...she was probably there daily & they knew her by name real soon! She's always sprinkling sunshine through comments on her blog, comments at SCS and in personal emails. She is so sweet! Next week's challenger is Jana and she issued an awesom sketch! Won't you play long??


Next card is from Danielle's Color Inspiration (PWC12) for Close to Cocoa, Sage Shadow, Brocade Blue & Very Vanilla. I chose to use my Papertrey Ink Faux Ribbon to recreate the quilt look in the picture. Don't these ladybugs look cute in green & blue? I thought so and the softness of the very vanilla makes it dreamy to me, like the nice big comfy bed in the picture, huh? If you haven't played along with these challenges yet and you have Paper Pretties stamps, what are you waiting for? You could win a prize!!!


Paper Pretties Newsflash!!
