Pretties Wednesday: Blog Hopping with Fun Foam!

Hi peeps - I'm popping in with my Pretties Wednesday challenge sample. Last week Christie challenged everyone to use fun foam on a card. We thought the challenge was so much fun that we have extended it another week. That's right, the deadline has been extended until next Tuesday. Which is great because if you needed a bit of inspiration first (or an idea as to what fun foam is) you can take a peek at the design team's samples today! :)

For my card I used a sheet of pink Fun Foam and die cut it with the Top Note BigZ die. It then made a really fun frame for Ballerina Sophia.

Oh... and we are blog hopping again today. The next hop is the fabulous Charmaine! The hop started at Christie's so if you missed a couple of stops you will want to start there first.

This week's challenge details: Make a card/project that uses fun foam somehow someway.

How to Enter: make a card that meets the above challenge requirement and uses any Paper Pretties stamp set(s) you have. Upload the card to the Paper Pretties gallery. Please include it in the Weekly Challenges category and use keyword PWC70.

Deadline: 6PM (EST) on Tuesday, September 29th.

Prize: $15.00 coupon to the Paper Pretties Boutique.
