Prettie Love-y Wednesday!!

Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday!!

Two weeks ago, Jillian challenged the Prettie Girls to create a card that we LURVE!!! LOL!!

Now, I KNEW this was going to be a tough challenge for me...I hardly ever LURVE my cards, but I think I lurve this one! LOL!

OK...I have LOTS to tell you about this card! I used this past Saturday's Sketch For You To Try for my layout, and I started with Sending You Love by Paper Pretties, and I colored her with Copic Markers (I LOVE LOVE LOVE to color this image...not sure why, I just do!!). I then stamped her again onto a piece of Bella Rose DSP, then using that piece, paper pieced the *wallpaper* behind her. I have to say, I LURVE the look of that!!

I used other patterns from the Bella Rose DSP for the rest of my panels, and they are all sponged with their color (ie: The Kiwi Kiss panels were sponged with Kiwi Kiss ink...got me?). I dusted off some chipboard (you know, all that chipboard that you just HAD to have and never use? Yep, that stuff), and adhered some more Bella Rose DSP to them. I also sponged their edges for some dimension. I added some paper piercing (not tons...just some!) to certain places on the card, and using a post it note, separated my sentiment so I could place it where I wanted. I finished off the card with some little heart brads that I have had for so long, I no longer know where they are from!!

I had a BLAST with this challenge!! You can see all the other Prettie Lurve cards right here!!
