Miss You!

I've missed creating Bella cards because I've been enjoying playing with my new Stampin' Up stuff, but the other night I knew I wanted to make this Bella card for a friend I haven't seen in a while. If you don't own any Bellas, Stellas or Fellas your missing out, these stamps have such character and are so much fun to color and create a card with!

If anyone is interested in my process of making a Bella card:
After deciding on which Bella I'm going to make a card with, I usually pick out designer paper and matching card stock, then I choose the Copic markers (from my color chart) in various shades that match the papers I'm going to use. After I color and trim down my Bella, I go to my computer were I have a big selection of card sketches saved from various sites and pick the best sketch that I think would work for the shape/size Bella I'm working with. I usually always use ribbon, pop dot the main image for dimension, add either brads, baubles or flowers and a touch of glitter with either a Spica glitter pen, dry glitter or Stickles. This is just how I create a Bella card, I'm not claiming to be an expert and the way I do it is probably how most people create a card, I just thought I'd pass this info along.

Supplies: Billboardabella, Paper Patch designer paper, Ribbon, Copics, Naked buttons, SU scalloped edge punch, Spica glitter pen, Pop dots. Colors: Cool Caribbean, Tempting Turquoise, Cameo Coral, Whisper White. I really like this color combo, I think I'll have to try it again.
Thanks
