An Old Prettie Challenge

Today I'm sharing another older card. My stamping time lately has been nonexistent so for now I'll have to try to bedazzle you with some old cards. Its funny, I haven't been stamping for very long, but I really think I can already see an improvement from my earlier attempts!:-) This card I'm showing you was done for a challenge I issued the Prettie Girls. When I first showed Christie the sketch for our Simply Special stamp, I told her there was much more I planned on doing to it. But she loved it the way it was, and she was definitely right. The sentiment she came up for it is beautiful and I think this has become one of my favorite stamps of Paper Pretties to use. Especially to color!:-) But I still wanted to see what it would look like if I added more to it. So I gave the Prettie girls the challenge of hand drawing on their own card. But than I thought that might be a little mean because I know that most people aren't comfortable drawing, although I honestly think that anyone can draw, it just depends on how much you actually like doing it. So I changed the challenge to do SOMETHING by hand, either drawing, writing or doodling! This is what I came up with. I like how it came out, but I think if I were to do it again I would add a butterfly or two in there:-) The image is so big there wasn't much room for embellishments so I left it kind of plain. Looking at it now though, I think I would have tried to add some brads or something!



I'm hoping to get some stamping time in tonight. I better, I still have to finish the shaker card challenge for Wednesday! Have a wonderful day and thanks so much for stopping by!

I love this, Joni! Your coloring is fantastic, it's so feminine. The trellis, ground cover & shovel are wonderful additions to the watering can & pot! Perhaps they can be an add-on in the future!? It's hard to believe you haven't been stamping for YEARS!
