Bright Bella Birthday Card

Well I can add this Partygirlabella to my wish list of Bellas that I'd like to get! This was a stamped image from when I used my friend Dawn's Bella stamps. Now that I've made a card with this Bella image I see how fun she is and I wish I had this one (whining). I'm using this card for Beate's weekend sketch challenge, I knew I wanted to use this Bella image for the sketch, but I didn't realize how large she was. Once I colored her and trimmed her down, I placed her on a standard sized card and she took up the whole front. So this card measures 6"x5 1/4", thats a pretty decent sized card. I really like the way this came out and would be happy to give this to a friend for her birthday.
Three of the balloons and the cupcake have been colored and cut out from a separate image, then popped up for dimension. I applied stickles to the Bella's party hat and cupcake and the whole Bella image is raised with more pop dots.

Supplies: Partygirlabella - Stamping Bella, Think Happy Thoughts, Dotted BG - Stampin' Up, Circle punches, Photo corner punch, Brads, Ribbon, Designer paper (an old piece from my stash), Stickles, Copic markers, Piercer w/mat, Pop dots. Colors: Brocade Blue, Green Galore, Summer Sun, Whisper White.

Here in Michigan it was a whopping 1 degrees outside today with high winds, I do love winter but not when its so cold you can't breath outside, brrrrr!

Thanks for visiting.
