Paper Pretties Monday

Good Morning everyone!  I hope you all had a great weekend.  I sure did - I got a lot done.  But still there's never enough time for everything.  Oh well, we just keep moving on, right?

The new challenge is up at Paper Pretties and this week it's an easy one...


I love embossing.  I love the texture of it and it adds so much to a card.  Here's my card for this week, I also drew inspiration for this card from this week's challenge at Just Us Girls - Faux Window Technique.

This card features the newest image by ARTish - meet Melonie.  That is one happy pig!  The scene I created in the background is from a coloring page I found on the internet.  This was the perfect backdrop to create the window.  This was so easy to do and a lot of fun!

Please head on over to the Paper Pretties blog to see some great samples created by the rest of the team and to play along.  Have a super Monday!

What a happy little pig...Love the window technique. I always forget about embossing (and all the folders I have). You should check out TSGs farm background - it's too cute!!
