Prettie Wednesday!!!

Hi everyone!! Happy Prettie Wednesday!!

Two weeks ago, the super fabu Danielle Lounds challenged the Prettie Girls to make a card using texture...BUT...the texture had to be something different than textured ribbon or primas...hmmm...tough one! She suggested cutting felt with a die cut, so that is what I did!! I used some funky glittered felt and cut it with a flower die and my Cuttlebug. I then cut some flowers out of just Barely Banana Cardstock, and than ran that through the Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots folder. I layered the flowers and attached them with a Barely Banana Brad...it is SUPER texture-y in real life!!!

I used the GORGEOUS Sophia Ballerina, the newest Stamp of the Month from Paper Pretties, for this card, and colored her with Copic Markers. I did not color her dance skirt, and instead, added some Crystal Transaparent Glitter to it for some shimmer!!

I used the Swiss Dots Embossing Folder on the rest of the layers, and added a ribbon knot of Black Gingham Ribbon to finish it off!!

You can see all the other Prettie creations for this challenge here!!
