Pretties Wednesday Challenge Hop

Hi Prettie Fans,

I'm back this Wednesday with my take on last week's sketch challenge. The Prettie Girls are also hopping today so hopefully you came here from Jules blog, if not the hop started with Christie!

For my card I pulled out the Home Sweet Home stamp set and some sophisticated gold embossed designer paper from SEI and made this chocolate-y card! I kept the coloring muted. Hmmm... I could probably even send this card to a guy, although I did make the curtains pink. :D

Next stop in the blog hop is the fabulous Charmaine!!!

In case you lose your place, we are hopping in the following order:
Christie Ortman
Julie Masse
Danielle Lounds (that's me!)
Charmaine Ikach
Jana Weaver
Jackie Rakoski
Christi Thorsen
Frances Byrne

The next challenge was issued by Charmaine and it is this fabulous inspiration piece. Hmmm... how will it inspire you? I'm thinking I will hve to incorporate some of those colors!
