It's another Thursday which means it is time for a new Paper Pretties weekly challenge. I do so love a layout challenge so that is what you are getting this week. :) If you participate in this challenge don't forgot to upload your card to the Paper Pretties gallery (in the Weekly Challenge category) and maybe you could win a little something something. :)
For my sample card I used the Sophia from Rainy Day Friend and a couple of the new Stampin' Up! In Colors. I'll be so sad to see Soft Sky, River Rock and Blue Bayou retire but I'm a bit psyched to have some new colors in which to play. Now I just need the matching ink pads to complete my collection of colors!
Quick notes: Sophia was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black on Neenah cardstock and then cut out with a Petite Scalloped Circle Nestabilitie. She was then colored with Copics and her hat and unbrella were accented with Crystal Effects (adds shine). I then had to, really I had to, add a bit of paper piercing - one poke per scallop!
For the background of the card I used the raindrop and a VersaMark pad to ad just a touch of texture.
