Prettie Wednesday

Two weeks ago, Jackie challenged the Prettie Girls to make a card using a dark and light shade of our favorite color. Well, my favorite colors (as far as stamping) change all of the time. I have LOVED Tangerine Tango since it came out, so I decided to go with that. I used Groovy Guava as the "lighter shade". It looked close enough to me! :)

I used the Home Sweet Home set from Paper Pretties. Coloring the building in a Groovy Guava reminded me of a nice, sunny, warm place to live. I used the Spots 'n Dots Cuttlebug folder on the Groovy Guava cardstock. Don't forget to check out what the other Prettie Girls have come up with for this challenge:
