Prettie Tuesday

So, I really wanted to use this image of Sophia dressed up as Mary for my Color Challenge card today. What I didn't count on is the fact that the colors would be Real Red, Kraft and Basic Black...hmmm. So, I did the best I could with it, since I was DETERMINED to use this image from Paper Pretties on my card. The image was stamped on watercolor paper with black ink. I then used my SU markers to color her in. Mary and all her layers were cut out with my Cuttlebug and Oval Nestabilities. I added some piercing, a spiral clip with Kraft taffeta and adhered it to my card base. The base is the challenge colors with Whisper White and then some Kraft patterns paper. I added a RR scalloped piece underneath of it and then wrapped some more Kraft taffeta and some RR grosgrain. The sentiment is also from Paper Pretties and it was punched out with my two largest oval punches from SU. I added some Antique Brass brads and it was done. This image is so gorgeous, it really doesn't need much else, kwim!! Lastly, Paper Pretties is moving and we need to clear out our inventory because we do NOT want to move it! So, beginning today almost everything in the Pretties Boutique is on sale for 75% off - yes that was 75% you read - below wholesale!!! The exceptions are the Pretties Stamps and the Swarovski crystals - everything else is being cleared out! The prices have already been changed for you so you won't need a coupon code! Happy Shopping!! Well, that is it for me for now. Thanks for stopping by!!
