Prettie Wednesday- My Sketch

ETA: I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you to all my fellow Prettie Girls for their surprise hop for me today!!! If you didn't get to see it, go to Christie's blog!! I really needed this today too! The swelling set in yesterday, and last night was pretty rough. I am trying to take it easy today, so far so good. Thanks for all the well wishes girls, you are the best!!

So, two weeks ago I challenged my Prettie Girls to make a card using a sketch I had drawn up. I loved my sketch so much, you may be seeing a lot of it!! Basically it is one that I use as my go to sketch, which I think we all have!! For my card, I decided to make a masculine birthday card, I don't know about you, but I am a girlie girl. I NEVER think about making masculine cards until I need them, so it is kinda nice to be ahead for a change!! I started by stamping my Luke image from the Paper Pretties set, Right on Par. I stamped it on an MFT Perfect Panel and then colored him with my Copics. His shirt was paper pieced with a piece of Prestwick DSP(retired SU). I then cut him out and embossed him with my Cuttlebug and Oval Nesties. The layer is Garden Green, and the othe color on the card is Brocade Blue. My sentiment was punched out with the new modern label punch. I added Brocade Blue wide grosgrain from SU , white brads from Hobby Lobby, and a spiral clip from Joann's. The Blue layer was embossed with my Argyle Cuttlebug embossing folder.

Well, that is it for me now!! I am so excited because the next Paper Pretties release is coming up and the new sets are TO DIE FOR!! The peeks will start a week from today, so stay tuned!! While you are at it though, blurf around and check out what the other girls have been up to!!
