Splurging on Pretties


I've had my SU Pretties Kit for a loooong time now, and I find there are STILL items that I've never used! I tend to hoard my little goodies like Hodgepodge Hardware and such, I guess maybe because they seem so finite in that case.

But I asked myself "What are they FOR?" Well, they are to USE!! And if I use them all, well, hey, SU will make more! Plus, some of my favorite paper colors are retiring, so I wanted to create something that highlighted all these elements.

Here is what I got. I used the Blue Bayou paper with my not-often-used Paisley Background stamp. I also used Soft Sky paper (sigh...) and sponged the edges for some depth.
I layered it with Vellum for a soft, elegant look. Then I water-colored some of those gorgeous silk flowers, added some ribbon, and best of all, some Pretties Kit BLING!

I heat embossed the words for a bolder effect, and I was pretty happy with my Pretties Kit results.
