Prettie Wednesday

Happy Wednesday!! Two weeks ago, Jules challenged the Prettie Girls to find something that we were inspired by, a blog, a website, a catalog, a piece of art . . . anything! Then make a card using that inspiration piece. I chose this gorgeous bedding from the JCPenney’s website. I loved the colors and the flowers on it. I also decided to combine this with the sketch challenge Danielle posted in the Pretties Challenge forum last week. Anyone can play along, and we really hope that you do!!I started with my Simply Special set from Paper Prettiesand stamped the image on watercolor paper, colored it with my SU markers, and cut it out using my oval nestabilities. I coved the whole watering can image with some crystal effects to make it shiny. To mimic the walls in my inspiration piece, I ran the Ruby Red layer through my Cuttlebug with the Distressed Stripes folder. The SU ticket corner punch was used on the corners and then I put some pewter brads in the notches. The DP is from the Close to Cocoa SU pack and the ribbon is some that I got through a ribbon share with Jody(texasjodylynn).
Last week Charmaine challenged us to make a bookmark and we would love it if you played along, just make sure to leave us a link!! This week it's Jana's turn to challenge! This card is actually on it’s way over to Jana as we speak, but as per my usual, it’s gonna be late!! One week, I swear my card will reach the person before it is time to post it, ya right!!Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!
