Paper Pretties Monday

Good Morning!  I hope you had a fabulous weekend!  I sure did.  I spent lots of time with friends and my children and played the mom-taxi.  Despite the 50 cent piece sized mosquito bites on my arms and legs, I really enjoyed myself.  I got some great stamping time in yesterday morning, early and then spent the rest of the day watching movies with my kids.  Doesn't get much better than that!

So, of course, I have a card to share with you featuring the latest digi challenge at Paper Pretties and a new release by the ever amazing ARTish.  I want to give credit because for this card, I had to cut that part off.  This is Sudz...

This week's challeng is a color challenge.  Blue, Brown and your choice.  I choose white with a tiny touch of red.

Most of the tiny bit of red got covered up, but....

I used a sentiment from the Oh So Tropical set that was released a few weeks ago.  I even found so old page pebbles to add as bubbles.  I created my using a fabulous sketch from the Bloggers Challenge which was really easy to work with.
