Pretties Wednesday: Urp!

Two weeks ago Charmaine challenged the Prettie Girls to use... pastels... as in... chalks. Eek! So uh, do me a favor and don't look too closely at my coloring job today. Okay? Maybe even take off your glasses or remove your contacts or even hold a piece of cellophane in front of your face... might look a wee bit better blurry. :)

If you would like to see more pastel-y goodness, check out the rest of the Prettie Girls:

Now it is my turn to issue the Prettie Girl Challenge. I debated this for a while after completing the pastel challenge. Do I feel bad for myself and the rest of the Prettie Girls and should therefore issue an easy challenge? Or not? Hmmm... well, hopefully the girls will think this one is fun. Hee hee. My challenge is to use a texture-y material on your card (not including ribbon or Primas). So cut/die-cut some felt, cork, vinyl, fabric or whatnot and plop it on your card. Heck you can even use marshmallows. ;)
