Prettie Wednesday

Today is Wednesday, and time for another Prettie Girls Challenge! Two weeks ago, Joanne challenged us to "Scare" ourselves. We were supposed to use something on our card that scares us. . .either paper that isn't our "norm" or a stamp set that we've never used, etc. For me, it's chipboard and flourishes. I don't know why, but I never use chipboard and flourishes just never look right to me when I use them. So, I used both on this card. I'm still not sure I really like the card, but at least I used two things that scare me! :) Head on over and check out what scares the other Prettie Girls, Alli, Christie, Jillian, Joanne, Julie C., Julie M., and Kristine. Today is Christie's turn to issue a new challenge! Why don't you play along and see what she has in store? Thanks for stopping by! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- True Friend, Priceless (SU); Paper- Apple Cider DS, Wild Wasabi (SU), Chocolate (DCWV); Ink- Chocolate Chip, Really Rust (SU); Accessories- Blossoms & Basics On Board (SU), double stitched ribbon in Wild Wasabi, Martha Steward Brownstone glitter, paper piercer, Making Memories brads.

i like this card, and i like that i can click on the image and see it close up! would never have known just by looking at the original that that's not stitching up at the top. it's good to challenge ourselves. tfs!

What a good idea... to use something we are not comfortable using to be creative. It must get the juices flowing. Are you happy with the outcome? I think 'letting go' and just 'going for it' with stamping is a key to creativity. Good for you for doing this! It is a very nice card.
