I'm a Pretty Girl!

I don't usually go around saying that I'm a pretty girl, but today I have to shout it.  I'M A PRETTY GIRL.  Thanks, to the lovely Heather, prettiest of the pretty girls at Paper Pretties (where your dreams come to life).  Okay, in not so silly terms, a big thanks to Heather over at Paper Pretties for picking me for her design team. I get to play with some very talented women,  I've admired them for a long time, some I've worked with or chatted with on-line and some I'm just getting to know.  

Today's my first card for Paper Pretties, the challenge this week is a sketch.  Sketch challenges are a lot of fun.  Some people think that sketches are limiting but they really aren't.  You can use whatever colors you like, you can use whatever theme you'd like and you can change the elements to suit your idea. 

I choose to use the "Giving Thanks Sophia" stamp, isn't she adorable? If you don't already have this stamp, you can pick her up here. Of course there's lots of other stamps available, I just happen to be partial to this one.

Even if you don't have a Paper Pretties stamp you can still play with us, but if you have one, we'd love to see what you did with it. So get inky, make a card or project using this sketch and then link it up to the Paper Pretties blog.
