Surprise-abella!

Happy Bellarific Friday!
Today's sketch was created for us by the talented Shannanabella, and it was a fun one. Did you play along?

I decided to use one of my very first Bellas for this one, and I'm embarrassed to say I don't even think it had been inked yet...eeks! I also wanted to make a birthday card because my birthday stash seems to be getting a little low. I stamped Curly Surprise-abella with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Bella's Bestest Paper and coloured her with copics. She's cut out with Petite Oval Nestabilities. I decorated the packages a little with my copic multiliner and black glaze pen as well as with some purple Stickles.

The patterned paper is from the Little Yellow Bicycle Zinnia collection and I paired it with Prism Majectic Purple Medium and Prism Papaya Puree Medium. I ran the one layer through my Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder before adding some green ribbon from my stash. I finished it with three Lilac Bella Glitter Dots in the bottom left corner...look close because they're easy to miss.

I can't wait to see what the Sistahood created for this week's challenge. Let's pop over to Bloggabella together, shall we?

Thanks for stopping by!
