Prettie Thursday!!!

***Don't forget to enter a chance to win some Blog Candy!!! :D You have till Friday at midnight to sign up!!! :D I will be drawing a winner on Saturday morning! :D

Hey there, it's another Prettie Thursday!!! :D I have a great card to show you today using a sketch challenge Created by Courtney. This is my first time ever doing one of her challenges. I really liked the sketch so I thought I would give it a try!!! :D

Stamps: Flutter By (Paper Pretties) Paper: October Afternoon Dp & CTMH CS Ink: Brilliance Graphite Black & Copics Accents: CB Swiss Dots, Paper Piercer, Olive Brads, Heidi Swapp Ghost Flower, Black Sugar Coated Brad (Doodlebug) & Black Gingham Ribbon (Ribbon FX)

I wasn't sure what I was gonna do first, but I did know I wanted to use this FABulous October Afternoon dp I found at my LSS. So I pulled my colors from there and got to work!!! :D I started with my base first which is a piece of Black TCS. I then layered a piece of Sunflower TCS and then a piece of Breeze CS that I ran through my CB using the Swiss Dots folder. I'm so glad I still have some of that Breeze CS left as it is being retired! (sigh!) Next I tied some black gingham ribbon to the bottom of my card and went ahead and used my corner rounder to make the scallops on my delish dp! :D Next I got to work on my image. I just love Sophia and this stamp was the first Prettie stamp I owned so I tend so show her alot of love!!! :D I stamped Sophia with Brilliance Graphite Black Ink onto White Daisy CS. I colored her in with my Copics, but to tell you the truth I had the hardest time coloring her. I wasn't sure what color her dress should be, what color the butterfly should be...yada, yada, yada! LOL!!! :D But I figured it out and I think she came out great! :D For a little sparkle, I used my Copic Spica Glitter pen on the butterfly, the flower and her jewerly. I then layered her on a piece of Black TCS and stamped Happy Birthday in the bottom left hand corner. Next I went to piercing and added two small olive brads to the top of my mage. I am so "in love" right now with these Heidi Swapp Ghost images that I had to add one to this card too! I added a daisy and used a suger coated black brad from Dooglebug to add it to my image...cute, huh?!?! :D
