Paper Pretties' Wednesday Challenge and Sneak Peek!

Stamps:  Paper Pretties 'Love Birds'.  Cardstock:  Barely Banana, Almost Amethyst, Certainly Celery, Basic Grey 'Sugar Rush', Papertrey white.  Ink:  Memento black, Copics.  Accessories:  Circle Nestabilties, Martha Stewart cherry blossom around the page punches, velvet ribbon, jewel buckle.

Welcome to Paper Pretties Wednesday challenge and day 6 of the December release sneak peeks!

Our challenge for this week is to use a punched shape on your project -- it finally inspired me to break out my very neglected Martha Stewart  'Cherry Blossom' set!

The featured stamp for today is 'Love Birds', the latest fun addition to the Victoria Case line of chicks with attitude like 'Wicked Old Bird' and 'Holiday Polly'.  These sweet birds come with five different sentiments, perfect for any sweetheart occasion.

The sketch is courtesy of Midnight Madness sketch #83 which actually leans more towards the fancy version than my usual CAS!

Be sure to enjoy the other Pretties' Gals 'Punch It!' cards:
