Aloha!

Today is Monday, so you know what that means, its time for another Pretties Post! I hope everyone had a great weekend, I finally got some much needed gardening done and I planted some wonderful flowers in a newly cleared flower bed! So for today's card post I decided to share a card I created at the last Paper Pretties Pajama Party! That's right, during out June release party at Paper Pretties Charmaine hosted a great techniques challenge! She asked us to use baby wipes in some way and create a card, so I got to work. I did finish the card while at the party but I ran out of time to post it that night, since everyone else had already headed off to bed, so I thought today would be an excellent choice to share my creation! I used my baby wipes to create a fun background for this fun Aloha Sophia card. Isn't Aloha Sophia just adorable, I think she may be one of my favorite Paper Pretties Stamp of the Month. All I did was use my baby wipe as an ink pad, that's right I picked three reinkers that I thought worked well together and ran the baby wipe over a piece of glossy cardstock. It gave me this fun streaky effect to the background paper, doesn't it look sweet! I love this technique and it has been ages since I dug these reinkers out of there box! Hope you enjoyed today's Pretties Post! Have a great Monday!
