Prettie Wednesday

Two weeks ago, Christie challenged us to create a green and white card. I think this may be as simple as they come. The most involved part of this card was cutting out the tree. This card is on its way to Christie, so I hope she likes it! Make sure you check out what the other Prettie Girls have created using this color combo. All of the links are in my sidebar. Last week, Julie challenged us to make our "trash" a "treasure", so we'll all be posting that challenge next week. Today is my turn to issue a challenge. . .so I challenge you to make a card and use only ONE type of embellishment. It can be ribbon, brads, Dew Drops, paper piercings. . .whatever you want, but only one type. (i.e. . .if you use brads, you can use as many brads as you want, but you can't use brads AND ribbon). Have fun and thanks for stopping by! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Soakin Up the Sun (Paper Pretties); Paper- white (Georgia-Pacific), green (DCWV); Accessories- Copic markers, hole punch, wide grosgrain

Very pretty card Charmaine... so soothing and calming. Which I needed after reading your challenge!! Only one type of embellishment? You mean I have to choose? My poor embellies are going to be jealous of each other! :)
