Prettie Tuesday

Here is my card for today's color challenge over on SCS. Now I know I said I would be back with something pretty today, but Cooper says that he isn't pretty, maybe cute, but definitely not pretty!!LOL!!! So anyway, I stamped my Cooper on watercolor paper and colored him in using my ink pads, markers, aqua painter, silver pen, and Prismacolor cool gray marker. I paper pierced around the edges and then layered it with Real Red, Soft Sky and Blue Bayou. Cooper is available in the Paper Pretties store, and he and his sister Sophia look so good together. My sentiment actually says Look Out World, Here I Come, but I only wanted the first part of it, so I just colored what I wanted with my marker. I think this sentiment is awesome, because it could be used for a birthday, first day of school, graduation, you name it!! I then punched it out with my word window punch and layered it with other papers cut out with the word window punch and attached it with a red brad. I then popped the main image up on a piece of Blue Bayou DSP which was layered with Blue Bayou CS. The base of the card(which is 5 1/4 square) is Real Red, then layered with Soft Sky and Whisper White which I ran through my Cuttlebug with the Paisley folder. Since the folder doesn't cover the whole paper, and I am too OCD for the paisley not to match, I added a piece of wide red grosgrain and then added some other ribbons to match. Did you know that Paper Pretties has Gift Certificates now? No, well now you do!! Go and check it out!! Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you have a wonderful day!!!
