Now back to the Wednesday Challenge, today we are kicking things off at the new Paper Pretties Blog, so if you haven't started there head on over!
We are all sharing with you our cards following the current challenge which is to create a card using this fabulous sketch, then you will have until August 10th to try this one out for yourself! For my project today I decided to ink up Simply Special (it's on sale for $4.00). This sketch was fun, all the different layers took a bit, but I really do like the end result, and the background paper is perfect! I needed to add a bit of something to this, so this two toned ribbon I have from May Arts was amazing! So after you get your inspiration for the week, you may just want to hop over to the Paper Pretties Store and see where is takes you! I can't wait to see what the other ladies decided to create, check out the other Pretties Girl's creations, in fact we have three NEW DT members, be sure to send Jessica George, Pam Vernell, and Wendy Hoff a huge welcome!


We have changed our challenges up a bit but we still invite you to play along with all the fun! All you have to do is make a project following this weeks challenge, which is to create a card based on the above sketch, and link it to the Paper Pretties Blog post, we have a inlinkz! I hope you will play along, in fact do not need to use Paper Pretties stamps either (although we would love to see them!), so come and play along!

This week one participant will receive a stamp, in fact we are giving away Bugs and Fishes!

After you've seen all of the Pretties Girl's creations for this one, now its your turn to try it out! Your next challenge is to create a card using this fun sketch! I can't wait to see what you create! Your next stop on the hop is to visit Jana's blog, I know she will have something wonderful to share with you! I hope you have a wonderful day and thank you for stopping by!
