Lulu for Mercy

My BFF Dana packed a few stamps in her suitcase, some that I don't own, so I'm taking full advantage and using her stuff! She brought along Gertie Lulu, a Stamping Bella image that I don't own...yet, and I thought she'd work nicely with Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge #38.

I started by stamping Gertie with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Bella's Bestest Paper then I cut her out with Labels 4 Nestabilities. I coloured her with copics and used my pink Spica Glitter pen to add a little shimmer to the bottom of her dress.

I chose a pretty floral pattern from my Basic Grey Lemonade 6x6 paper pack and paired it with some Prism papers. I added a little texture with my Textile Cuttlebug embossing folder then tied some ribbon and used my Bow Easy for the sweet bow. I added a ghost butterfly to accent the image and outlined it with Crystal Stickles to make it stand out a little more.

Don't forget about this week's Bellarific Friday challenge. You'll find the sketch by clicking here, and you have until Thursday night to email your card to Em.

Thanks for stopping by!

Holy Moley Karen! You've been a busy girl while I was away. Love all the cards you've posted over the past 4 or 5 days! Those Halloween cards and the candy bottles are absolutely adorable!! This card is so bright and cheery! I've had my eye on that Basic Grey paper for a while now. I've got to pick some up soon before it disappears. Love the ghost butterfly too! I finally got some of those ghost snowflakes. Good thing I'm taking my laptop on our two week vacation coming up next week so I can keep an eye on what you're doing:))
