A Prettie Challenge

Ok, I'm starting a new feature today . . . Prettie Challenge Wednesday. I've told you before that the Paper Pretties DT does a fun little weekly challenge where one member posts a challenge and we have one week to complete it and mail it to another member of the DT. We decided that it might be fun to all post those challenges and cards on the same day so that you all can see how different each creation can be!

Today we are posting the challenge that was issued by Alli Miles - a color challenge (you know how Alli loves color!!) using Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa, Very Vanilla and either Soft Sky or Cool Caribbean. I love these colors together - have seen a lot of close variations of this lately and it's so nice!

Here's my card. I used these absolutely adorable Ollie & Olivia stamps by Stampendous which are available in the Paper Pretties Corner Store. I just think these owls are the cutest!! I just got some Fun Flock - ever used it? I never had but wanted to give it a try - sooo much fun!! I think I need to perfect my technique (there are a few heavier spots) but overall it was soooo fun. You just use a glue pen or something similar, sprinkle on the flocking, smoosh it down a bit and viola - you have a brown fuzzy Olivia - how cute!!! As you can see I also used my Cuttlebug with the Swirly embossing folder which I brushed with some Cocoa ink to give it some depth. The sentiment is also Stampendous. The brads are Queen & Co., (also available in the Corner Store), and the ribbon is SU Chocolate Taffeta.

So, travel around later today to the other DT member's blogs (Alli, Christie, Joanne, Jillian, Kristine, Charmaine and Julie C) and see what they've done - I think you'll have fun seeing how each of us interpreted the challenge!This week's challenge will be issued by Joanne - can't wait to see what it is! Why don't you play along?? It'll be fun!!

Thanks for stopping in - oh, lots of Lizzie Anne stamps arrived in the Store yesterday - check them out!!
