Prettie Wednesday

Two weeks ago, Jana challenged the Prettie Girls to Try a New Technique. I decided on using the Salted Background Technique with my Rainy Day Friends set from Paper Pretties. I LOVE the way it turned out, I only wish I would have used lighter colors for the background instead of adding Pacific Point and Tangerine Tango. They came out so dark. It still works, but next time I'll go for more of a pastel palette. This card was definitely inspired by all of the rain we've had lately. :)

Be sure and check out what the rest of the Prettie Girls created for this challenge.
