Prettie Girl Wednesday Challenge

Every week the Prettie Girls on the Paper Pretties design team are assigned a new challenge. We have a week to complete the project and then we have to mail it to the next Prettie Girl on the list. A few weeks ago I jumped in and assigned a colour challenge using some of my FAV SU! colours: kraft, whisper white, chocolate chip and skye blue (they could substitute SU! colours with the closest colours from another company). This is the card I came up with for my friend and design buddy Charmaine!

paper: kraft, whisper white, chocolate chip, skye blue (SU!)
ink: Brillance Graphite Black (Tsukineko)
stamp set(s): Baby it's Cold Outside (MFT stamp Not Yet Released available only through Paper Pretties November Subscription box or MFT Dec 1st)
accessories: Polka Dot Ribbon (May Arts), Ticket Corner Punch (SU!)

Note: This card is 4.25x4.25

Having these challenges has really built our team and brought us closer together. We work to reach a common goal and it keeps us designing and pushing the boundaries (you should see TODAY's challenge *lol*...see below). The more we talked about it the more we realized we needed to make this a common thread on Wednesdays on our blogs. Not only that we've decided that we will include you in the challenges too. So every Wednesday we'll share what we made the week before and tell you what the next challenge is. We look forward to you playing along too! If you do decide to play, make sure you post a link back to my blog so I can see your marvelous creations! I may even have a prize for your participation (I'll do a draw through the random generator).
Make sure to check out what the other Prettie Girls Christie, Charmaine, Jillian, Joanne, Julie C., Julie M., and Kristine have created. Today is Joanne's turn to issue a challenge:

The Challenge:
Find something in your collection that is out of your traditional style, either stamps that you have but don't use, or paper you haven't yet been brave enough to use, or a color ink pad that you own, but don't use.

Because I love to stamp and you do too!
