PWC115 and More - Summer Fun!


Happy Wednesday! Are you ready for the Prettie Wednesday Challenge?! Remember, Paper Pretties has returned to the BLOG FORMAT for store news, information, etc....aaaaaand the PWC!  Having the blog back means that we've got a linking system and PRIZES!!!  Woooooot!!  Check out the Paper Pretties Blog for all the details and your chance to win!

This week our challenge (keyword: PWC115) is to use a SUMMER THEME for your project!!!  Easy peasy lemon squeezy, don'cha think??  We'd love you to play along!  Here is my contribution using Swing On By Sophia.


Love this new stamp set!  She and 11 other AMAZING sets jam packed with images and sentiments are available now in the Prettie Boutique.  They are a fabulous value with all of the extras you get.  Heather is really spoiling us!

The red patterned paper in the background is from the Memory Box Beach 6x6 collection.  Pretty appropriate for summer, don't ya think?  The Wasabi patterned paper is from SU, as is the Baja cardstock.  PTI white for my main image.  Sophia is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copic markers.  Flowers and buttons mainly from my stash, the Baja corduroy button has Scrapper's Floss tied through the holes.

I am so excited, I got to incorporate some other challenges with this week's card as well!  I used a sketch from the Corrosive Challenge Blog (#76) here it is:


And of course my favorite color challenge, the ColourQ!  This is CQC46 (I admit I had to go with "next closest" on a few of the colors since I didn't have them all, but I think I matched up pretty well):

I was also inspired by the recipe challenge over at Paper Sundaes - fast becoming a go-to favorite challenge blog - this week (#31) is a recipe - 4 flowers, 3 buttons and 2 patterned papers.  Sweet!!

Thanks for stopping by today!  We have changed the PWC format so it's no longer a blog hop, head over to the Paper Pretties Blog for a full list of the day's eye candy and all the challenge (and PRIZE) details!  You link up THERE for your chance to win!
