Paper Pretties Wednesday Challenge!

Here I am again...a week later. Still busy...Still not stamping much. Things are finally starting to come together for me though...I think I can see the light at the end of the tunnel (just hope it isn't a train coming to run me over).

It's Wednesday! That means it is time for another fabulous Paper Pretties Wednesday challenge! This week Jana challenged us all to make a card using Silver and Gold.

So at first glace you are probably wondering where the gold is in my card...hmm....I'm trying to find it too, LOL. I had about 10 minutes "spare" time to throw this together tonight and I figured it would take at least that long to find something gold in my stamp room so I went with more of a silver theme.
I used the Snowflakes Falling sentiment. This is a really pretty sentiment and it works well as a focal image. Because I haven't been stamping much, when I went to take my picture, I got one picture taken and the camera died. Thankfully I was able to get enough charge to get my picture off but unfortunately the photo angle is a bit wonky. Nothing can fix that. Oh well.
The camera will be all charged up for next week's picture, LOL.
I used some gorgeous May Arts silver ribbon and some silver Dress It Up Glitter Dots. I absolutely love Dress It Up Glitter Dots. We currently only have pink in the Paper Pretties store but I ordered at least 20 new colors that should be here this week. I ordered so many colors I decided that Glitter Dots deserved its own category in the store, LOL. I will add them to the store as soon as they arrive. They are flat backed and work great with mini Glue Dots.

There are tons of new products in the Paper Pretties store. I added the new Basic Grey Oliver and Olivia lines (6x6 paper pads, stitched brads and glazed brads) as well as several colors of Copic Sketch markers. There is a bunch of new ribbon by the spool as well as several different brands of 6x6 paper pads.

Thanks for hanging in there with me these past few weeks. I promise there is fun ahead! I hope you all have a great day!
