Bestest Friends

Here's my card for yesterday's Bellarific Friday on Bloggabella. Weren't all the submissions super fabulous! OMG...there's SO much stamping talent in the world!!!

The inspiration piece reminded me of the Scenic Route Grafton line of papers...the colours are bang on, so I pulled out the striped piece. I stamped Mr. Turtle with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured him with copics. I cut him out with square Nestabilities and added some orange Stickles to his shell. 

I wanted to keep this layout more simple, with some white space (ok, a teensy bit of white space, LOL)...more like the wonderful layouts Nickabella comes up with. I started with the white base then cut a circle of Tangerine Tango and ran it through the D'vine Swirls Cuttlebug folder. I punched the striped paper with the SU eyelet border punch. The ribbon is old SU from my stash. 

Once the image was in place I stamped the sentiment, Bestest Friends. I added three Burnt Honey Bella Bonbons to the ribbon just under the sentiment and to balance off the other side I added a Prima with a Kajinker flower in the center. The final detail is a small ghost butterfly that I coated with orange Stickles. 

I really like the simplicity of this layout. Thanks for the inspiration Nicky!

Thanks for stopping by!
