Paper Pretties Monday

Good Morning!  Happy Monday.  I hope you all had a great weekend.  Mine was pretty good and I'm off today, too.  My kids went back to school today so I always take this day off to make sure they get off OK.  It was a little difficult to get Levi moving, but he eventually got himself together.

I had a good day yesterday, it was fairly laid back but I was able to make some cards and play along with some favorite challenges.  Speaking of favorite challenges, the Paper Pretties challenge is up and it's an easy one....


Everyone likes the Anything Goes challenge, everyone but me.  I think I've expressed how I feel about them.  I think if you're going to do an anything goes, you need to challenge yourself.  Well, to be honest, this time I didn't stretch myself, I just had fun making this card.  I really wanted to play with this image.  This is called AAAaaaahhhhh!!!  Can you hear him?

This week, Paper Pretties is re-releasing a couple of digi sets as well as releasing a new set by Fawn.  I chose to go with the re-release of Aaaaahhhh! - He's so funny and so darn adorable!

I used the sketch from The Sweet Stop as my layout for this card.  I love the results.  I really like matting with black, it just makes everything pop.

Card stock:  Neenah Classic Crest, Bashful Blue (SU!), Black (Recollections)
Paper:  Buggy Afternoon digi paper pack (ACOT)
Copics:  B000, BG01, C5, E30, E33, R11, YG03
Tools: Circle cutter (CM)
Embellishments: black stitched ribbon, button (all my stash)

That's exactly what I would be screaming! And I can see his poor little paws scrambling to make the horror stop :) The black just makes everything pop - and I LOVE that sentiment to go with!

Awwwh, isn't this so fun, cute and hilarious all rolled into one?!?! I love the cloud paper you have in the background and then the pop of black. Very fun card! I love it!
