Prettie Specific Wednesday

We're so excited to have Jana back with us on Prettie Wednesday - even if she is stamping one-handed (while the other holds her beautiful baby boy!)!! :) Two weeks ago she issued the challenge and it was along the lines of a limited supply challenge but very specific:

Create a card or scrapbook page using the following items:
1 dry embossed piece (embossing folders and texture plates count!)
2 pieces of patterened paper
3 colors of solid cardstock (this includes any neutrals you use)
4 embellishments
5 layers

The dry embossed piece must be one of your patterned papers or your 3 colors. And, at no point should there by more than 4 layers under a top piece of cardstock. However, if you have your base card with a second layer on may have multiple small pieces each with 2 layers under them. You may use as many tools as you like.

So after I read the directions about two dozen times - lol - here's what I came up with. I used Sending You Love from Paper Pretties of course. I just think she is the perfect Valentine set!

I used some pretty Making Memories paper and metal tag that I got from Emma's Paperie. My 4 embellisments are ribbon, brad, glitter and the metal tag. Even though I did emboss the hearts after I cut them out with the Nestabilities, I added a embossed frame around the heart using my Scor-Pal. The heart is popped up with Dimensionals.

I can't wait to see the other Prettie Girls' cards - be sure to check them out!! Why not give the challenge a try - it sure was fun to put it all together!! :) Have a great day!

Cardstock: Sweet Blush, Kraft (Papertrey Ink), White (GP), Patterned Paper: Making Memories, Stamps: Sending My Love (Paper Pretties), Ink: Tuxedo Black (Memento), Accessories: heart brad, Nestabilities, Ribbon (Papertrey Ink), Metal Tag (Making Memories), Scor-pal, Corner rounder punch, Dazzling Diamond Glitter, Copic Markers
