Takeout Tonight!


Well I won’t really be having take out tonight, but it is the next best thing as it is my DD’s turn to cook hehe …. yahhhhh.

Of course it is Wednesday which means it is time for another Pretties Wednesday Challenge & Blog Hop. If you didn't hop onto my blog via Christi Thorsen's blog then you might want to hop back over to the very start of the blog hop which is at Christie Ortman's blog.

This week it is Heather Lee-Reppen’s turn to issue the challenge. She has challenged us to a color challenge with a twist. We had to use the colors Black, Red & White and the twist was to add glitter to our project.

I love this color combo, it has to be up there in my fav combo’s (of course I do have more then one favorite color combo LOL … how could you not *wink*) Anyway I had just purchased this oriental themed designer papers the other week and as they worked with this color combo it wasn’t hard to decide which set I would be using this week …. Paper Pretties Flirty Fortunes set! I carefully stamped the takeout box onto my designer paper so that the red symbol was on the front of my box and paper pieced this onto my box that I had on the white circle.

I found this fun sketch while browsing my Google Reader recently from the Just Us Girls (JUGS) blog and decided to use it for the layout of this card.

Ok so where is the glitter …. don’t worry it is there LOL … I added it to the stripes on the chopsticks!
