Prettie {Favorite Embellie & A Peek} Wednesday!!

Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday!! Two weeks ago, I challenged the Prettie Girls to create a card using their favorite embellishment, and they had to tell us what it is!!

My favorite embellishment are brads! I LOVE them! Small or large, mettalic or colors...I LOVE each and every one of em!!

For my card, I used Make A Splash Sophia from Paper Pretties, as well as a sneek peak of a new set being released on August 1!! It is an add on set for Make A Splash, and the beach ball and sentiment on my card are from this new set! LOVE them!!!!

Sophia and the beach ball are stamped onto Choice Snow White Cardstock and colored with Copic Markers. I added some White Gel Pen highlights for interest!

All the cardstock, patterned paper and ribbon on this card are from the July Key Ingredients from Taylored Expressions. This patterned paper, Early Bird from Cosmo Cricket, is my absolute FAVORITE paper ever!!!

My sentiment, "Summer Fun" was punched with the Word Window Punch and adhered under my double ribbons! I LOVE the look of this and have been doing it alot lately!!

Let's see what the other Prettie's have done with my challenge shall we? You can see all their Prettie goodness right here!!
