Hello Dear Friend






Happy Bellarific Friday! We had two weeks to complete the challenge this time...I can't wait to pop over to Bloggabella to see what everyone came up with. Here's a reminder of the gorgeous inspiration piece we had to work with and we also had to use a flower. 

I decided to use Mojo81 for my layout. 
Daisy Hippo and Wasabi Flower were stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured with copics. I used both the large and small Wasabi Flower, cut them out and popped them for dimension. I also popped the hippo's face and gave her pink toenail polish...she's SO girly! Just a smidge of turquoise Stickles adds a perfect sparkle to her flower.  :)
All the patterned papers are My Mind's Eye Bloom and Grow line. I chose it because it's soooooo colourful...perfect for this challenge. I sewed three stems onto the orange piece before adhering it with dimensionals. The flower centers are 5mm Bella Bonbons in Burnt Honey, Aqua and Olive.  
The sentiment, Hello Dear Friend, was stamped onto a piece of Bloom and Grow patterned paper and I added some 5mm Aqua Bella Bonbons to the dots. You can never really have enough bling...right?
Alright...I'm off to Blogabella...meet you there! Don't forget, you can win Bella Bucks just for participating in the challenge and Em even gives some away to the Peanut Gallery (that's what she calls the comments on her Bellarific posts...too cute!). 

Thanks for stopping by!
