A Birthday Bella!!


A friend from work made a special request for a card this week. She has a birthday party for a 12 year old niece and needed something she would like. Well, it just happens that I have some Bella stamps that are PERFECT for a young girl, don't you agree????

I also have been visiting the new Member Company forums on Splitcoast and Stampingbella has one. Well, they've started posting challenges and so I decided to use a sketch challenge that they posted!! There's never a shortage of challenges over on Splitcoast, that's for sure!!!

I started by choosing the paper which is by Paper Studio. I love the colour combo of Pretty in Pink, Chocolate Chip and Certainly Celery. I pulled out my new Billboardabella 'cause I thought she could pass for a teenager and stamped her in Archival Versafine Black Onyx ink. What makes this stamp great, is that it comes with several separate sayings that you can stamp on the billboard!! I coloured her in using my SU markers and used my aquapainter to make her some ground to stand on. I doodled a border and pop dotted the main image. I just added some stitched ribbon that I got at Jacksonbelle's store and there she is.

Well, I brought it in to work yesterday and before I showed it to her, I told my friend that if it wasn't what she wanted, I would totally make something else and it wouldn't hurt my feelings at all!! She took one look at it and hugged me!!! That was so nice.
