Pretties Wednesday

Two weeks ago Jana issued the Prettie Girls a very specific card recipe for the challenge! On your card you needed to use the following:

1 dry embossed piece (embossing folders and texture plates count!)
* I used the Swiss Dots embossing folder on my card base. Check!

2 pieces of patterened paper
* I used two different patterned papers from The Green Stack: one with trees the other with words. Check!

3 colors of solid cardstock (this includes any neutrals you use)
* I used Kraft, Chocolate Chip and PTI Select white: hmm... all neutrals. Check!

4 embellishments
* I used one piece of hemp twine, one piece of Alphine Ribbon Originals and two jumbo eyelets. Check!

5 layers

At the thickest point there is exactly five layers: Kraft, Chocolate Chip, Patterned (trees), Patterned (words) and white. Check!

Whew - I didn't mess the challenge up! At least I don't think I did. You'll have to let me know for sure Jana! :) AND I also made this card for last week's Prettie Weekly Challenge #36 which was to use the stamp set Rainy Day Friends and/or Howdy Girlfriend and eyelets to make a card. You can see more details on the challenge here.
