Prettie Party TONIGHT!

So, let's bring in some food and settle in to chat! I LOVE this new set that you'll be able to buy starting this evening. The Prettie Party starts at 5pm Pacific Time, (8pm Eastern) in the 2nd Anniversary Party forum on the Paper Pretties site. We'll be chatting away about new stamps, showing full versions of the cute cards you've seen this week, and giving away LOTS of prizes - you really don't want to miss this!!

When I first got this set I was a little stumped, I'll admit. But then I saw what the other Pretties were doing with it and I was amazed! Such incredible creations...and so much fun! I was happy Jackson actually took a 1 1/2 hour nap on Friday allowing me to complete this card, inside and out!!

The images are all on GinaK's Pure Luxury 80 lb. white cardstock - and I must say I am loving the smoothness of it! I added some shading to the box with my grey copic marker, then colored the chopsticks with my SU! markers (creamy caramel, real red and basic black) before cutting them out. The box, black matting and red scalloped layer were all cut with my nesties (STILL so happy to have them finally) then I popped the chopsticks up on top. The designer paper is from the SU! Bella Rose DSP package, and the riding hood red layer was scalloped with my SU! scallop edge punch. The cute glittery heart brads are from my awesome Prettie Secret Santa, Jackie! Thanks Chica!! The card base is basic black. For a more detailed shot of the front, scroll all the way down!

Now, I have to say, I just LOVE this card...but look at the inside!! This set is SO much fun, and SO versatile! Such a perfect card for my dh for Valentine's day!!! Or, why wait? Maybe I should give it to him tonight before the online party as an incentive to let me chat longer! ;-) Think it will work??

There are several "fortunes" to choose from, as well as some other fun images you could put on the box, or use as backgrounds for your card. Trust me...I'm just getting started with this set, and I know you all would love it just as much as I do! You could even WIN this set for FREE at the party be sure to come on over!

Have a wonderful day, and I look forward to chatting with you all tonight!
