PWC73 - Barely Banana, Ruby Red, Not Quite Navy


I am so excited to be able to participate in a Paper Pretties Challenge!

This week's Pretties Wednesday Challenge is a color combo!

Barely Banana
Ruby Red
Not Quite Navy


What a neat color combo, Christi!
I had SO much fun putting this one together. Thank you!

Here is my card:

Prettie Snowflake Angel




Stamp: Snowflake Kisses (Paper Pretties), Sparkling Snowflake (Hero Arts), Series 37 (Clear Stamps)
Cardstock: Barely Banana, Not Quite Navy, Whisper White
Ink: Tuxedo Black (Memento), Barely Banana (SU), Not Quite Navy (SU), Ruby Red (SU), VersaMark (Tsukineko)
Copics: 0, B97, BG0000, E00, E30, E37, R37, RV95, T3, Y21
Accessories: Barely Banana 1/2" grosgrain ribbon (SU), linen thread (SU), Fresh Favorites II buttons (SU), Scalloped Tag (Spellbinders), clear embossing powder (SU), glue pen (Sakura), Dazzling Diamonds (SU), Stampin' Dimensionals (SU)



A couple of closeups:

Prettie ribbon and tag:



I used Barely Banana grosgrain ribbon across the front. I tied a separate bow down to the ribbon going across with some linen thread. A ruby red button was tied onto the bow with the same thread. I used the smallest die from the Scalloped Tag Shapeabilities Collection to cut out this cute little tag. Using a sponge, I added some Barely Banana to the edges. I stamped "holiday" in Ruby Red and "fun" in Not Quite Navy. The tag was added to the bow with a separate piece of linen thread.



Snowflake Kisses Sophia:



Here is darling Sophia making a snowflake angel in the snow.
Isn't she adorable?! I knew I wanted to use her for the challenge right away!
I managed to find Copics to match the Ruby Red, Barely Banana, and Not Quite Navy colors. Let's see... I used R37 first and then put a layer of RV95 over it for Ruby Red. I used Y21 for Barely Banana and B97 for Not Quite Navy. Perfect matches! :)

The big snowflakes in the background was made by stamping the large snowflake in VersaMark and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.

I hope you like Snowflake Kisses Sophia as much as I do!

Thank you for stopping by!
