Prettie Wednesday!!

Hi everyone!! Happy Prettie Wednesday!!! Two weeks ago, the wonderful Charmaine challenged us to make an ATC (Artist Trading Card). I had to hit the Resource Section over at SCS as I have NEVER made one of these before!! This was alot of fun, but as someone who LOVES to embellish, the small size of this left me wishing for some room for brads! LOL!!

This past weekend, I was in Maine for a girls weekend with my family. I had the complete pleasure to meet my friend and fellow Prettie Girl, Jules!! We met at a stamp store called Maine-ly Stamps and I had the BEST time! I have a pic of us together, and Jules looks GORGEOUS...but I look vile so I am not posting it!! Just take it from me, Jules is AWESOME!!!

While we took a break from chatting up a storm, the owner of the store showed us a demo with a super cool Cloud template! Well, of course I had to buy it (shocking...I know), and I used it on this card. I am not sure if you can see the clouds in the background, but IRL it is really soft and pretty!!

On this card, I used the new Angel Sophia, which is next month's Stamp of The Month over at Paper Pretties!! Isn't she just GORGEOUS????? I know you NEED her, so head on over to Paper Pretties and sign up for the Stamp of the Month Club! That way, you can have her an entire month before she is released to the public! Sweet!!

Angel Sophia was watercolored with my SU! Inks and an Aquapainter, and I added some touches of glitter to her wings and the bottom of her dress. Some sheer polka dot ribbon finished her off...and I left off a sentiment because I ran out of room ;)

This card is on it's way to Jackie!!

Please check out what the other Prettie Girls have created for this challenge!!
