Sketch Challenge...sorta!

Well, I guess you can say I tried, right? In my defense, I checked the sketch challenge on SCS last night before I went to bed, and never looked at it again. Which explains why my triangle panels are opposite what they are supposed to be...oh well!!! I still LOVE my card!!! I used my favorite flower stamp, Bloomin Beautiful, from SU, and colored it in with my ink pads and aquapainter. I used a couple of SU markers for shading purposes though!! This is the new Bella Rose DSP from SU and it is GORGEOUS!! The gingham ribbon is one of those 99cent spools you can get at JoAnns and the organdy is some retired SU narrow organdy. I added a TON of silver brads to this too...I know, SHOCKING!! The sentiment is from Hugs and Wishes(I think, or is it Holidays and wishes, hmmm). That is all for me today, hopefully I will get to stamp again in the morning!! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!

Prettie Wednesday-3x3

So, I am not a huge fan of the 3x3 cards, only because I make them, and forget to use them!! I think they are cute, and great for gifts, but you have to remember to put them WITH the gift...maybe I should work on that??LOL!! Anyway, two weeks ago Jodi(kharmagirl) posted her first challenge to the Prettie girls to make a 3x3 card. Ever since I saw this turtle I have had this card in my head. I tried it once, but it didn't look right, because the image is so small it doesn't fill up the card unless you use more than one. When I saw Jodi's challenge, I KNEW I wanted to finally make my card. Since you know me, and you know how I {heart} my embellishments, I had to get as many as possible on here. I paired the turtle from the newly released Beach Bum set at Paper Pretties with the sentiment for one of my favorites, One Of Those Days. Isn't it hysterical, IMHO. I think it is so cute....and I bet you know what I wanna do with the snail from that set too...I see a big wall in his future, LOL!!! Poor little guys!! Anyway, I stamped my turtle with Black Stazon, colored him with a blender pen and my Apricot Appeal marker and punched him out with my 1 3/8ths circle punch. I then layered him with a scallop circle punched out of Wild Wasabi. The ribbon is Wild Wasabi striped ribbon(can you tell I was working with the mess that was out on my table still). At the bottom, I added the sentiment and three silver brads. The paper is from the SU Prints Pack. Okay, so yes, I admitted it, I just made this last night...I am so bad!! I promise you(whoever you are that I am SUPPOSED to mail this too), I will mail it ASAP!!
That is it for me now!! Hopefully I can get some time to work on the SCS sketch challenge today, it is interesting!! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!! Be sure to blurf around and check out the other Prettie girl's(Christie, Charmaine, Danielle, Jackie, Jessie, Jana, Jillian, Julie, Joni, and Donna) creations and check out Joni(our illustrator)'s new blog to see what kind of a challenge she has in store for us this week is my embellishment challenge, should be interesting!!
