Pretties Party and Preview!

Today is Wednesday, so you know what that means, it's time for another Paper Pretties Challenge! BUT, not only is today a Challenge, but it is also a peek of another fabulous new stamp set to be released on Friday....AND it is also a Birthday Blog Hop! I know, oh my goodness are we Prettie Girls one crazy busy bunch or what?!

Today is Jennifer's Birthday! Many birthday wishes are heading you way Jennifer! Since we can't get together to celebrate Jennifer's birthday, we are hopping around and hosting a virtual birthday blog hop, or our little Paper Pretties Party if you will! We are kicking things off at the Paper Pretties Blog blog, so if you haven't started there then you better head on over, but if you are joining me from Frances' blog then you found the right place!

This week our challenge is to create a card that uses some form of embossing! Simple enough, and with so many choices! Not only so many choices, but also we are previewing the stamp set Everyday Sentiments! This stamp set has 10 different sentiments to choose from as well as these adorable circles to create with, in fact I used two different sentiments stamps and all 4 circles images!For Jennifer I wanted to create a fun card and decided to use the sentiments "Celebrate" and the "you" portion of "Thinking of you", which resulted in the "Celebrate you"! It is a bit hard to see, but I have used crystal clear embossing powder on the sentiments and the circle image that is between the sentiments. I wanted to create some background paper with the circles in the stamp set and gave each image a different color then mounted the paper on matching color card stock and added a giant bow!

Just a few reminders about Paper Pretties! We are now State side, which means faster shipping times, lower shipping costs, and fabulous customer service! Also, if you haven't seen it yet be sure to check out the Design Team Call, that's right, we are looking for some new Pretties Girls! plus Friday, November 12th is our monthly release, so be sure to hop along with us and see all our fabulous new stamp sets! Now head on over to the Paper Pretties Blog to see all of the creations for today's challenge!

We'd love for you to play along, in fact one random challenge participant this week will win a stamp!
