Bellarific Surprise-aBella

Happy Bellarific Friday!!! Today we're celebrating the Bella Character that started our Stamping Bella obsessions (or at least she's responsible for my obsession!!!).
I wanted to use Mercy's Tuesday Sketch, MTSC48, for the layout but the Bella images are all tall...hmmmmmmm....so I turned Curly Surprise-aBella into a twinchie!!!! How fun is that!!!!

I started by stamping da Bella with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Bella's Bestest Paper then cut her out with square Nestabilities that measured 2". Em has these fabulous Twinchie panels in the store, but I didn't order any last time...doh! I coloured the image with copics and popped the presents for dimension. I used my E41 copic all around the image to soften the bright white paper then I stitched the edges.

The white card base measures 3.25 inches by 6.5 inches and I ran the same E41 copic around the outer edge to soften the white again. I stitched some October Afternoon Report Card patterned paper to some Prism Papaya Puree Dark and added a border punched strip. The blue satin ribbon is from my stash along with the Primas and pumpkin Glitter Dot. I'm so glad that my stash of birthday cards is growing again!!!

Don't forget to stop by Bloggabella to see all the Sistah's submissions using the Bella Character. And leave a comment while you're there...you may just win some Bella Bucks!!!

Thanks for stopping by!
