Happy Wednesday


Hi Guys,

I know that it has been awhile since I have posted, but things have been so busy at the Stamping Bella store with both the free shipping and the launch of the amazing new stamps, that this is the first chance I have had to post.

I hope that you go and check out the new challenge for this week at http://stampingbella.com/blog/. The challenge is Happy Birthday and it was picked by our very own Bellarific Babe Dana. Who knows, but that you might win some Bella Bucks, if you either leave a comment or participate in the challenge.

I decided to re-do one of my cards, which originally was a square card in yellow, pink and blue, to a rectangular card in turquoise, black and kraft card stock. I used Rollanda Ketto and paper pieced both Rollanda's dress and roller blades . I used Lyra pencils and odorless mineral spirits to colour the rest of the image. The glitter, ribbon and bonbonz finish off the card. I just love this colour combo. What do you think ?

Thanks so much for stopping by.

I would love to hear from you, so leave a comment.

Hugs,

Nicky

Hey Nicky ~~ Adorable creation using Bella's Ketto image :) You have a brilliant knack for being able to layout your card and make your image come alive. Guess that's why you're the Teacher and I'm the student ! LOL
