Prettie Wednesday

Two weeks ago, Julie challenged us to make a card from something that inspires us. I love color, but I especially love color when it's a combination that you wouldn't think goes together. I was browsing Pottery Barn online and came across this furniture and just LOVED the colors. I would NEVER put these colors together, but I would buy this furniture because I REALLY like the color combination. Weird, huh? I used the Cuddle Me Sophia stamp from Paper Pretties and the Happy Everything set from Stampin' Up. This card is on its way to Christie. She celebrated her birthday last week. . .Happy Birthday, again, Christie! Hope you had a wonderful day! The challenge for next week is to make a bookmark. Hope you'll join us for that challenge!

Also, tomorrow night Paper Pretties will release 3 new sets! Come join us at 8pm EST for our release and Prettie Pajama Party! I have 3 challenges for you and I will issue one at the top of each hour. You'll have an hour to create and upload your creation to the Prettie Pajama Party gallery. . .kind of like a mini Virtual Stamp Night! It's lots of fun and there are prizes! Plus, everyone who purchases ANY of the Paper Pretties' Stamps during the Party will receive a 25% coupon for use on their entire next order of anything from the Pretties' Boutique! Hope to see you there! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Cuddle Me (Paper Pretties), Happy Everything (SU); Paper- Purely Pomegranate (SU) white (Georgia-Pacific), Berry Sorbet, Summer Sunrise (Papertrey Ink), chocolate (The Paper Company); Ink- Burnt Umber (Palette), Onyx Black (Versafine); Accessories- Copic markers, Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder (Provocraft), square rhinestone brads (SU), cream grosgrain (Darice)
