Splish Splash- a New SOTM is Here!!!

Hey everyone and welcome to another preview day with Paper Pretties!! Today's preview is actually my Prettie Wednesday entry too.

Two weeks ago, Frances, challenged us to make an ATC. I know it is cheating a little, but when I saw this SUPAH cute image, the NEW Stamp of the Month Splish Splash, I decided that I would use just her on my ATC. Unfortunately, I stuck her to the finished card before I got a chance to take a picture...nice. My ATC is the panel with her and the spiral clip, the rest of the card is some Pink Flamingo DSP, Cameo Coral, and Tempting Turquoise. I added some large silver brads from SU, and my sentiment was punched out with my SU oval punches-including the new scalloped oval punch!! The image was colored with my Copics, and all the accessories are from SU, except the spiral clip. Don't forget about the release party tonight at 6pmCDT at the Paper Pretties forum!!
Check out the rest of the Pretties to see what they have come up with!!

Okay, now onto my card!! For my peek, I used the new Cuddle Up Carter set. It is our newest charity set with $2 from every set purchased in the next 6 months going to benefit kids with Cerebral Palsy via the non-profit Euro-Peds clinic ( in Pontiac, Michigan. For those of you that don't know, this set is in honor of fellow design team member, Carole's son Carter...he is such a cutie and a real trooper!! He has CP and this is a program that he participates in every year that is so helpful and beneficial to him. I decided to use some of the Nana's Nursery Baby Boy pack for my Carter. I paper pieced his jammies and his blanket. The slippers were colored, cut out, and popped up. I paired the DP with Not Quite Navy, Barely Banana, and Wild Wasabi. The rest of the Carter image was colored with my Copics and the brads are from the SU Soft Subtles pack. The ribbon is from the SAB ribbon set.
Well, that is it for me now!! Off to FRANCES' BLOG!!
