Prettie Peeks!!

So, I know you have seen this set before, but I have had this card made since the LAST release and I have been DYING to post it!! I just love this little angel!! I made this for one of the last PJ party challenges, so some people have seen it, but I still love it, so I am posting!! The challenge was to use Pink Pirouette, Kiwi Kiss and Baja Breeze. I stamped my Angel Wings Sophia on Very Vanilla and then colored her with my aqua painter and re-inkers. I then layered her with the challenge colors and pierced a border around the corners. The DP is from the Bella Rose DSP and all the brads came from Pink Hedgehog Paper Crafts, as well as that GORGEOUS pink ribbon. My Sentiment comes from the retired SU Season's Greetings set. I did add liquid applique to the bottom of her dress. This stamp, which was last month's stamp of the month, is being released Saturday, November 1st at 7pmCST(can you BELIEVE it is November already??), along with four new Christmas sets that you are gonna HAVE to have once you see them!! As soon as I saw them, I was bouncing around in my chair!! Here is all the info you need to have about what all is going on at Paper Pretties!!

That is one of the words I would use to describe marriage, wouldn't you?? My BIL is getting married this weekend, so I really needed a card for him and my new SIL. I decided that I would use the sketch challenge from today to make their card. They are having a fall themed wedding, complete with pumpkin centerpieces, so I used a more "fall" color scheme. I tried to go SU only on this one, but I just love my organdy ribbon and spiral clips, so I ALMOST made it, does it count is SU used to sell it? hmmm. Anyway, I stamped my flower from Bloomin' Beautiful twice, colored both the flowers in and then cut one out. My squares are 1 1/2in at the largest layer and then a 1/4 step down for the other layers. My image was colored with my SU markers. I layered them with Old Olive and Bravo Burgundy. The paper is from SU and is part of the Parisian Summer DSP, isn't it GORGEOUS!! I am not a huge fan of Blavo Burgundy, but I LOVE this paper and I LOVE this card, so what can you do?? I added some piercing around the edges and the corners of the image panels and silver brads to the top and bottom. My sentiment is from the Sweet Serendipity set and was stamped with Bravo Burgundy. I punched it out with my designer label punch and used some Stylized Silver hardware to frame it. The ribbon on the spiral clips is vanilla taffeta and around the middle it is burgundy wide grosgrain as well as my olive organdy. I am super excited about this card, mostly because I have been in a stamping funk here lately...but I think I am starting to recover, what do you think? Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!
I will leave you with some SUPAH cute pics of my ADORABLE nephew...seriously, could he get any cuter??!! Carolina, do you see anything you recognize( LOVE THE BIB YOU SENT!!)!!
