Not So Prettie Wednesday....

What can I say, I am not very happy with this card. Not so much the layout, it is this weeks sketch challenge, which I love. It's not the colors, I LOVE this paper from SU. It isn't the super cute stamps...gotta love a cute little puppy running in a rain puddle!! It's the coloring....NOT GOOD. It isn't my fault though, I had no choice...CHARMAINE made me do it!!! Two weeks ago, Charmaine challenged the Prettie Girls to use Chalks/Pastels on our cards...let's just say I failed miserably. I TOTALLY colored with the chalks, but I SERIOUSLY did a horrible job doing it...and my poor puppy, I had to color it about 5 times til I got it the way I wanted it...and I STILL don't like it. I cut him out too, which looks kinda bad, but I digress......hey, give me a break, ALL the girls were whining(just ask my email, it was BURNIN up tonight trying to keep up with the constant flood of emails)!! So, I already told you it was the sketch, the paper is from the Prestwick DSP which I paired with Basic Grey and Brocade Blue, and the stamps are from Paper Pretties(Rainy Day Friends). I used my Cuttlebug and Circle Nesties to cut it and it's layers out. I added crystal effects to the water and embellished it with some silver Robin's Nest Dew Drops. The ribbons are from SU(Brocade Blue grosgrain and Basic Grey taffeta). I punched my sentiment out with my oval punches and it was done!! I am SUPER excited because this week ALL the new Prettie Girls will OFFICIALLY be playing along AND my pal Jana is BACK, WAHOO!! Thanks for stopping by, be sure to check out the other Pretties to see what they have created, and if you wanna play along, please do, just leave us a link!!
