Pretties Wednesday - Make A Splash!

Hello there!

It is Pretties Wednesday ..... every Wednesday one of the Prettie Girls issues a challenge to the rest of the Prettie Girls, we get two weeks to create our card/project for that challenge and upload it to our blogs on the Wednesday a fortnight after the challenge was issued.

Two weeks ago it was my turn to challenge the Prettie Girls ... now seeing that today is April 1st I really wanted to make it something relating to April Fools day but I really couldn't think of anything ... which is probably a good thing hehe .... especially for the other Prettie Girls hehe!

Anyway I finally decided what my challenge was going to be which was to make an ATC. It had been sometime since I had made an ATC so I thought this might be a fun challenge to do.

You can see my ATC at the top of this post .... I used the new "Splish Splash Sophia"that will be released by Paper Pretties later tonight 1st April. I think she is adorable!!!!!!

Normally when I create an ATC, I leave it as an ATC and send it that way. However this time round I decided to use my ATC as the focal point of my card.

The dots on the right side of my card were created using the dottix sizzix texture plate. I also added two orange splash eyelets to my card ... I haven't used eyelets for ages and it isn't as if I don't have heaps of them ... cause I do!

Don't forget to check out what the rest of the Prettie Girls created for this challenge:
On Sunday April 1st, Paper Pretties will be having their monthly Stampin In Your Jammies party!! The party starts at 6pm CDT and will last until 9pm. We will be issuing a challenge every hour so be sure to come and play along!! Besides the challenges, chatter, and all around fun, we will also be releasing Sophia Ballerina, Sweets for the Sweet in Rubber, Bunny Slippers in Rubber, and a new set!! Sneak peeks start on Monday, March 30th!! Hope to see you there!!
