Doesn't Every Girl Like To Feel Prettie!

To see La-La's Weekly Wednesday Challenge, please scroll down to the next post or click HERE.

Before I get started, I just wanted to wish my beautiful little boy a very HAPPY 5th BIRTHDAY! It is so hard to believe that he will be starting Kindergarten in the fall! He loves cars and here he is standing next to a NASCAR racing car that is on display at the M&M store in Las Vegas:

Okay, Prettie Peeps! It’s time for another Pretties Wednesday Challenge and Blog Hop! You probably came here from Kristy Ketterlin's blog. If not, then you might want to hop back over to the start of the blog hop, at Christie Ortman's blog, so that you don't miss a thing!

This week's challenge is hosted by Jennifer Greco. Jennifer’s challenge is “Something for your Valentine”. It can be a card, a gift, a treat... whatever it is you are giving to your Valentine as long as it is stamped!

We are using Flirty Fortunes or Sassy Circles and Sassy Shoes, which are all on sale for 20% off this week! I would have made a Valentine for Kevin but I didn't have Flirty Fortunes to stamp with. I opted instead to make a girlie pink card for one of my friends that I will give as a Valentine / Birthday card. I will put a Westfield Mall gift card inside so that she can buy something special for herself. She LOVES shoes and polka dots... I think she will like this card. :)

Paper: Mimosa "Pink Lady" (SEI), Stamper's Select White (Papertrey), Bazzil Bling
Ink: Tuxedo Black (Memento)

LLWWC25 - No Designer Paper!

Welcome to La-La's Weekly Wednesday Challenge! Lisa is our host this week and she has a fun challenge for us all... no designer paper! Here's what she has to say:

"I challenge you to make a card without using any designer/decorative paper (including any you stamp on your own). Yep, that's right... only cardstock! But you can dry emboss the cardstock layers and use whatever embellishments you want. It's sort of the old-fashioned way of card-making!"

One lucky participant will win wonderful this stamp, Sitting Lala:

This challenge was really fun to do!
I started by dry embossing white cardstock with "Elegant Bouquet" textured impressions embossing folder (SU). Using Classic Oval Large and Classic Scalloped Oval Large nesties, I created a frame for sweet Rosie to stand in. I matched the dry embossing on the white oval. The ribbon is green because of Rosie's eyes and I also wanted it to look like the ends of the ribbon were leaves for the felt flower. It looked a little bare so I added some flower buttons (SU).

Paper: Whisper White, Pretty in Pink
Nestabilites: Classic Oval Large, Classic Scalloped Oval Large
Ribbon: Spring Moss (Papertrey Ink)
Buttons: Latte (SU)
Flower: Sweet Pea Stitched Felt (SU)
Copics: E0000, E00, E01, E09, E19, E74, R46, R81, R85, BG93
