my pretties...

Monday I got some new toys from my old demo who is now my upline. One of the things I got was the Pretties Kit. I have been hoarding them, petting them and drooling on them. (Picture me as Golem with his precious) I went so far as to let a friend look at them the other day, but not touch, LOL. So today I decided I needed to just do it and open the box and gasp, use them. Here they are aren't they, well, pretty, my precious, er I mean my pretties?
I really did use some of them. First I put a crystal bead and a white pearl on a hat pin. Then I got all wild and crazy and used my aquapainter and a soft sky reinker to dye a couple of flowers and held them together with a rhinestone brad. What do you think?
And since I was on a roll this morning I got out another new stamp set called Autumn Harvest and played around with it and the distressing tool from the cutter kit. The leaves may be a bit too much, but over all I am pleased with it.

Debi, both of your challenge cards look wonderful! The first one is so elegant, the second so fall-ish! Love them both
