Prettie Wednesday- Pearls

Two weeks ago, I challenged my fellow Prettie Girls to make a card using pearls on it...easy peasy right!! While I was at Walmart, I bought this SUPER GORGEOUS pearl snowflake buttons, so I KNEW that I wanted to use them on my card today. My card was made using the SCS sketch challenge along with the SOON TO BE RELEASED to the public stamp, Trim the Tree. Trim the Tree will be released by Paper Pretties on Monday, December 1st at our monthly Stampin In Your Jammies party. She will be released along with our Snowflake Kisses stamp set which will be RE-RELEASED in RUBBAH!! The fun starts at 6pmCDT(here is a time zone converter to help you figure out what time that is in your neck of the woods) and will last until 9pm. We will be issuing a challenge every hour as well as talkin up a storm. So, be there, or be square, LOL!! Also, you have until the 30th of November at 8pmCDT to get your entries in for the Cutie Pie contest, just be sure to get your card uploaded to the Paper Pretties Cutie Pie submissions gallery. The winner will get both the Trim the Tree and Snowflake Kisses sets as their prize!!
Okay, enough blabber, onto the card!! I stamped my Trim the Tree Sophia on watercolor paper with Black Stazon ink. I then used my Not Quite Navy marker to color her in. After coloring her dress, I used an aquapainter to take away some of the color then painted the whole image with some December Sky Shimmerz...yummmo!!! It is rare that you can see shimmer in a picture, but I think it is VERY visable in mine!! The belt and sleeves on the dress are colored with my Silver Glitter Pen that I picked up at Target. The rest of the image was then colored in with my SU markers and outlined with my Cool Grey Prismacolor 20% marker. I pierced a border around the edges and added a spiral clip with some yummy Pink Hedgehogs Paper Crafts ribbon on it. The bottom corner has a snowflake that was punched out of my yummy Heidi Grace DSP (which is STILL ON SALE at Paper Pretties...go now!!!)(with one of the Martha Stewart Snowflake punches(Walmart)) and I layered one of my pearl snowflake buttons on top(also from Walmart). To get the button to sit flat, I just took a pair of scissors and cut off the loop on the back, easy peasy. The silver paper is from the DCWV metallic stack and it was paired with Whisper White and Not Quite Navy. I added some pearls to the edge as well as to her ornament. The ribbon is retired SU Silver Organdy with some silver cord. I did run the white layer through the Cuttlebug with my ornaments embossing folder. Well, that is it for me now...be sure to blurf around and see what the other Pretties have been up to!! I am sure they are amazing!!
