A Late Paper Pretties Monday!

Woohoo! I am finally able to post a card! I have to tell you that it has been a rough past couple of weeks. On top of getting this nasty cold, I ended up getting the stomach flu! Yesterday, about 2 hours into the school day, I started feeling really sick to my stomach and at about 12:00 I ended up sprinting to the bathroom (I am lucky enough to have one in my room) to throw up. Not fun! Especially when the kids KNOW! Anyway, after that humiliating experience, I had to try to find a sub. Let me tell you, it's impossible to find one at 12:00 p.m. because most normal people have made plans! That meant two things for me, I stick it out for the next 4 hours or my (fabulous) teaching partner takes my class. Lucky for me, she's amazing and she offered to combine for the rest of the day! I was then able to go home and sleep (well...when I wasn't getting sick) and recover! Today I am feeling better than ever! It's amazing how fast and hard it can hit you and then how quick you can recover from it! So, where have I been? That's where!

This card is one that I made using the ADORABLE Paper Pretties set, Cuddle Me. Oh, did I mention that I was asked to be a Paper Pretties guest designer??? How awesome is that??? I couldn't be more thrilled about it! :D Anyway, I used the Paper Pretties sketch challenge that Danielle issued over on the Paper Pretties forum and couldn't be happier with how this card turned out. I just love this color combination and thinks little Sophia looks adorable in blue! I used my Urban Garden dsp for the background and accented it with some chocolate ribbon and brads. I colored the image with my Stampin' Up markers and popped it up with dimensionals. This was a fun card to make and I love how easily it came together!

Stamps: Paper Pretties (Cuddle Me)
Paper: Whisper White, Baja Breeze, Chocolate Chip, Urban Garden dsp
