PWC125 - Hip To Be Square!

Happy Wednesday! Are you ready for the Prettie Wednesday Challenge?! I bet you are!  If you play along with us you could WIN!   Check out the Paper Pretties Blog for all the details!

For this week's challenge (keyword: PWC125) it's HIP TO BE SQUARE!  Yes it is!!  I love our fun challenges over here at Paper Pretties, they let you be creative without being too HARD, LOL.  So you may be able to guess, but all you have to do to participate this week is create a square project!  And of course, link up on the Paper Pretties Blog to enter.  Here is my contribution using the newly released Holiday Polly.




I stamped Polly with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on PTI white and colored him with Copic markers.  I added some Emerald Glitter Dots in the extra white space for some sparkle and bling, along with Kaisercraft Rhinestones along the circle's scallops.  Paper Pretties has 18 colors of Glitter Dots in stock now!  These are awesome for projects, so fast and easy, they are flat-backed and go on with a Mini Glue Dots, another of my favorite products.  Martha Stewart Tinsel Glitter on the hat.

Don't forget that Paper Pretties is having a stamp Design Team call AND NOW also a DIGI Design Team call!!  Get your applications in, we are looking for some new Prettie Girls to join us - and we have FUN THINGS in store, you won't want to miss.  Check this blog post (stamps) and this blog post (digis) for details.

Thanks for stopping by today!  Don't forget to head over to the Paper Pretties Blog for a full list of the day's eye candy and all the challenge (and PRIZE) details!  You link up THERE for your chance to win this week's prize package!

LPSC91

For today's challenge {your uploading keyword is LPSC91}. We have a great sketch for you to try out!  Our very own Allison always has great ideas!  And who doesn't enjoy a good sketch challenge??  Here is my card using {Rose}.  I know the photo makes a few of the lines look funky, I added the white/iridescent Smooch over the top of each line to give it a little shimmer and definition.  Unfortunately the camera picked it up in kind of a funky way.


And here is the sketch:
