Simple Things!


Hi everyone,

It’s 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 the challenge is hosted by Kristy Ketterlin. Kristy’s challenge is to create a card using the colors pink, white and one of your favorite colors. The card also must have ribbon and some sort of technique you have never tried before.

For my card I used Paper Pretties “Simply Special” stamp set. I selected red as the 3rd color to go with the pink & white we had to use as it worked well with the designer paper I wanted to use. Next technique … well it isn’t really one I haven’t tired before but it is a technique …. I airbrushed the centre portion of my sentiment tag to get a bit of color into it.

Want to play along with us
How to Enter: Create a card using the challenge above and any Paper Pretties stamp set(s) you have. Upload your project to the Paper Pretties gallery. Please include it in the Weekly Challenges category and use keyword PWC87.
Deadline: 6pm EST Tuesday, January 26th.
Prize: $15.00 coupon to the Paper Pretties Boutique.
