Pretties Thursday Challenge

This week's Paper Pretties challenge is to use the following sketch to make a card. Feel free to substitute the stars with another shape/embellishment of your choosing.

How to Enter: make your card using the provided sketch 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 PWC40.

Wednesday, February 25th 12AM (EST)

$5.00 coupon to the Paper Pretties Boutique.

The winner will be randomly selected from among the qualifying entrants and announced Friday, February 27th.

* Just a note: if you do not have any Paper Pretties stamps but would like to play and use the challenge sketch, please feel free to do so! Maybe leave a link on this post so I can check out your fabulous work and leave a little love! :)

Here is my sample using the provided sketch. I used hearts instead of stars and even embellished them further with little buttons. Sophia was colored with Copic markers and embellished with a touch of glitter along the bottom of her skirt (click picture to see the detail) and Crystal Effects on her ballet slippers.
