Prettie Tuesday!!!


Hi everyone! Happy Prettie Tuesday!!

For my card today, I used Danielle's color challenge from two weeks ago, PWC39! This is SUCH an awesome challenge!! Her challenge was to use Kraft, Whisper White and a Mystery Color! For my mystery color, I chose Baja Breeze...first just cause I love it, and second, I wanted to use this yummy Baja Breeze Satin Ribbon from the Valet Ribbon Originals!!

I used Sophia Ballerina from Paper Pretties for this card (isn't she SO awesome! LOVE her!!!) and I colored her with Copic Markers!! I added two coats of Candlelight Shimmerz onto her dance skirt to give it a litte, er, shimmerz...LOL!!!

My Kraft background panel was embossed with the Flourish Texturz Background from SU! and my sentiment is on a Baja Breeze cut out of Sizzlits Lots of Tags (LOVE these!!!). I added a highlight of Whisper White to the textured background to give it some softness.

I finished off this card with the aforementioned Baja Breeze Satin Ribbon from Valet Ribbon Originals and some adhesive half pearls from Kaiser!! I also added some white gel pen highlights...and look ma...NO piercing!!!
