Prettie {random} Wednesday!!

Hi everyone!! Happy Prettie Wednesday!!

Two weeks ago, the SUPER talented (she crochets too!) Danielle Lounds challenged the Prettie Girls to quite an interesting challenge! We were to take a random item from our home and somehow incorporate it into my card! Can you see what I did? Probably not...so I will just tell you!!

To start, I wanted to give some love to some of my non-Sophia Paper Pretties stamps (yep...they do exist! We all just love our Sophias so much we tend to use them the most!), and so for my card, I used Look Who's Perky! As I was going with a coffee theme, I chose to use a coffee filter as my random item!!

I ran the coffee filter through the Cuttlebug with three layered flower dies from Provo Craft. I then sponged the edges of each layer VERY lightly with some Taken With Teal ink and then layered them, one on top of the other. I added a vintage button (from the above mentioned, uber fabulous Danielle Lounds) and used it as one of my three circle focal points!!

For my other two circles, I stamped the coffee mugs in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Buttercream Cardstock and colored them with Copic Markers. All of the circles are 1 1/4 Circles layered on 1 3/8 Circles.

I stamped my sentiment, "How Ya Bean", which is also from Look Who's Perky, onto Choice Buttercream again and created a little tab for it. I added tons of piercing, three ribbon loops of Very Vanilla Taffeta Ribbon and called it done!!

The patterned paper is Lil' Man by Cosmo Cricket and I used Prism Cardstock in Intense Teal and Blush Red Dark!

You can see how the other Pretties defined "random" right here!!

It's my turn to issue a Prettie Challenge...and I am going to go SO easy on the Pretties! My challenge is to make a card and use your very FAVORITE embellishment on it...and then tell us why it is your favorite! Easy and fun right? :)
