Prettie Crushed Gray Burgundy Birthday

Hey Prettie Peeps! Happy Wednesday!
Welcome to Pretties Wednesday Challenge #89!

If you made it over here from Kristy Ketterlin's blog, then you are on the right track! If not, then you will want to start at the very beginning of this blog hop Christie Ortman's blog so that you don't miss a thing!

It's the first Wednesday of the month and this means it's time for a Sketch Challenge!
Take a look at the sketch that Frances has come up with this challenge...

Wondering why I have "Crushed Gray Burgundy Birthday" as the title for today's post?
I decided to join in on a Splitcoaststampers Color Combinations Challenge #256.
The colors are: Crushed Curry, Basic Gray, and Bravo Burgundy.
Did you know there's an online Stampin' Up Color Chart that you can refer to?
Click HERE if you want to see the actual colors!

I know! It's not what I had in mind. I really had to work outside of my comfort zone on this one. Strangely, I had a good time making this card. I'm having a hard time with it though... it just looks so different from what I had in my head! I might have to try this sketch challenge again and work without these colors. LOL! I think I was going for a more masculine looking card but it changed before I finished working on it. Ever have that happen to you?

Anyways, come join in on the fun! It's a neat sketch!

Create a card using the challenge above and any Paper Pretties stamp(s) that you have. Upload your project to the Paper Pretties gallery. Be sure to add your card to the "Weekly Challenges" category and use keyword PWC89.

This week’s special: 20% off – Time For Cake & Sealed with a Kiss. As an added special, and since Christie used the dp on her card for this challenge, all of the Cosmo Cricket dp is on sale for 45% off as well!

Time to head over to see what Jennifer has come up with for this challenge!
