Pretties Thursday:

This week's Pretties challenge is to make a card with scallops. That is it! You can use a lot of scallops or just a few like I did.

How to Enter: make your card with a few or a lot of scallops and any Paper Pretties stamp set(s). Upload the card to the Paper Pretties gallery. Please include it in the Weekly Challenges category and use keyword PWC45.

Deadline: midnight on Wednesday, April 1st.

Prize*: $5.00 coupon to the Paper Pretties Boutique.The winner will be randomly selected from among the qualifying entrants and announced after the contest has ended.

For my sample I stamped Sophia in Memento Tuxedo Black and then colored with Copic markers. After which I painted parts of the image with Shimmerz paints (top of umbrella, hat, dress and boots) and the rain drops with December Sky Blingz.

Here is a closeup so you can see the shimmery goodness of the paints and the lovely detail on the scalloped edging.

Guess what? Paper Pretties now has Shimmerz and Blingz in the Boutique!!! Now that I have had a chance to play and make a card with them I have to say "Wow-ee!". Love 'em! :)
