Prettie Wednesday- Color Challenge

Two weeks ago, my BSF Jodi(kharmagirl), challenged the Prettie Girls to make a card using Real Red, Baja Breeze and Chocolate Chip. I don't usually wait until the last minute to make my card for the Wednesday challenge, especially since we have two weeks notice, but I have been so busy lately it almost slipped my mind!! I decided that I would just play in the morning, but then I saw the SCS sketch challenge, and I knew what I wanted to do. Jared was really restless today, and didn't sleep much at all. Finally, he started to get VERY cranky so I decided to sit with him and hold him while he slept- I know that it is bad, but he really was miserable!! Well, anyway, I feel asleep too, and woke up almost two hours later...YIKES!! So needless to say, I am not exactly tired yet. I used my Snowflake Kisses set from Paper Pretties as well as Jodi's Color Challenge and the SCS sketch challenge. The main images were stamped on Gina K. pure luxury cardstock and colored in with my SU markers, re inkers, and a blender pen. I then layered them on some circles punched out with my SU circle punches. The DP is from the Ski Slope DSP and the ribbons are from SU also. The Baja Breeze layer was run through my Cuttlebug with the Snowflakes folder and then I took my White Stazon ink pad and rubbed it on the embossed parts. I added a few brads, some piercing, and then I did a sentiment pennant and it was done. I keep seeing Anna Wight's gorgeous pennants, so I just had to try one. Not sure I like the placement, but I do like the idea of it!! Well, that is it for me now...again. I am off to bed, thanks for stopping by!! Be sure to blurf around and check out what the other DT members have been up too!!

Also, the snowflake that I stamped with Real Red on the tag part is from the Baby It's Cold set. I used Real Red, Wild Wasabi and Pretty in Pink along with my DCWV Christmas paper. The buttons are from Walmart, and all my ribbons are from SU EXCEPT the red polka dot..not sure who sent that to me, but it it YUMMY.
