Larger Than Life...

Apparently I have a bit of an Addy-Tude this week...LOL! Sorry, I just couldn't resist saying that since this is my second Bella post using Addy-Tude! Really though, who can resist her...she's such a diva! I used this week's sketch challenge on Splitcoast for the layout, SC237.

This time I chose Addy-Tude is On Top of the World (which includes the sentiment). I stamped Addy with Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured her with copics. I pulled the colours right from the Basic Grey Urban Prairie paper I chose to work with and I decided to give her a reddish coat this time. Doesn't she look like she's come straight from "chic Paris" (say that with a french accent and it sounds even better)! I added a little crystal effects to her glasses so they'd shine.

I matted each of the layers with black for some punch. The reddish solid paper is Prism Blush Red Medium...I {heart} this colour...it seems to go with so many patterned papers. I fancied up the card a little with my Fleur de Lis border punch...hey, that's a french name...hmmm, seems like I've got a bit of a french theme going...LOL! I added some black stitched ribbon from my stash and a couple of white Primas to each side of the image. Along the bottom I finished the card with a row of coal glitter Bella Dots under the sentiment.

Don't forget, you have until 5pm today to email your Bellarific submission to Em for a chance to win $20 in Bella Bucks. Click here for this week's sketch.

I'm lovin' little miss Addy Tude! She's a stitch! Great layout for her and those flowers are such a perfect embellishment for the "chic" chick or perhaps she's right out of Quebec:))
