That's What I Get..

for NOT printing out the sketch!! What am I talking about? Well, I was TRYING to make a card for Danielle's Prettie Weekly Challenge. Every week Danielle(dlounds) posts a challenge over at Paper Pretties in the challenge forum. Last week, she posted this super cool sketch, and I REALLY wanted to play along. The rules were to FOLLOW the sketch and to use Flutterby or Wade E. Bug. Now, if you don't have those stamps, you can still play, but to be entered to win the $5.00 gift certificate to the Boutique you must upload your creation to the Weekly Challenges gallery(at Paper Pretties) and use keyword PWC34. You have two weeks to enter your card for this challenge. So, you have to have it done by Saturday, January 18th @ midnight. I sat down to do this weeks color challenge at SCS, cause I just KNEW it would be awesome for Wade and for this sketch...and something happened. Maybe it was my little brain on Dirty Dozen overload, but I THOUGHT I had followed the sketch...that's what I get for thinking. I am including a picture of the sketch, just incase you want to play along(and don't want to screw it up like I did). For my card, I used the color challenge colors, Not Quite Navy, Baja Breeze, and Kraft. I stamped my Wade E. Bug image on the craft cardstock using my Memento Tuxedo Black ink pad. He was then colored in using my Copic Ciao markers. I added a couple of spiral clips with some kraft taffeta ribbon. I the DP's both came from the Patterns pack that WAS a Hostess Level 1 gift from SU. I used my Cuttlebug and Circle Nestabilities to cut out both circles and to emboss the Whisper White panel, I used the Cuttlbug and distressed stripes folder. My sentiment is from the Paper Pretties set, Bugs and Fishes. I used 4 SU punches to create the layers-word window, scallop circle, 1 3/8ths circle, and 1 1/4 circle. Well, that is it for me now...the new Dirty Dozen gallery opens tomorrow night at midnight and I can't WAIT for you to see who is joining us this time around...although, I am gonna miss Cindy(onehappystamper) and Amy(pickletree) terribly!! Thanks for stopping by, have a Prettie day!!
