Bellarific Friday on Saturday

Today I'm sharing my Bellarific card from this past week's challenge.
Jenabella did a fun sketch so I inked up my Turtle Tots Picking Posies from Stamping Bella. Did you know this stamp includes the sentiment too? Thanks Em!

He's stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured with copics. I coloured him a second time and cut out his body so I could pop it for dimension. The paper piercing around the oval is freehand so don't look too closely...it's good from far but far from good! LOL!  :)

The patterned papers are from Imaginisce, the Twitterpated line...I still LOVE this paper and I have lots of the white polka dot one left. I sewed the green patterned paper to some so saffron and added it to a white card base. I used my Spellbinders Ribbon Tags Trio to cut out the sentiment and attached it with white grosgrain. The red Prima seemed like a perfect addition and I finished it with a Celery Bella Marble Dot. 

Did you see all the wonderful submissions for this challenge on Bloggabella? If not, go take a peek. You could win $10 Bella Bucks just for leaving a comment on Em's post, but if you participate you could win $20 Bella Bucks!!! Em will be posting the next challenge on Monday so come play along.   :)

AND, in honour of Em's birthday on June 25th, we're having a Bella Blog Hop and you're invited to join in the fun. Here's the link for all the details and to sign up. 

Boy there's a lot going on in June in my life! Actually, it's my favourite month of the year. First, today is my birthday, then next week is my anniversary, which happens to be the same day as the 1st year anniversary of our move from Canada to the US and it's also Father's Day. Then it's the first official day of summer. Then it's Em's birthday and the blog hop. Phew...it'll be July before I know it!

Thanks for stopping by!
Karen  :)
