It's a Wildcard Bellarific Friday!

Happy Bellarific Friday!!! I can't believe how late I am with this post. I thought I'd typed it up and scheduled it for this morning, but apparently I only wrote it in my head because when I looked at my blog a few minutes ago it wasn't there! Oooopsy!! :)
This week Em gave us complete creative discretion with a WILDCARD theme!!! Anything goes today for Bellarific Friday. I decided to use Ellie-phant (my animal stamps have been a little neglected lately with all the new cuteness that Stamping Bella has released!) and I paired her with the balloon from I Can't See A Thing-abella.

I started by stamping Ellie-phant and the balloon with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Bella's Bestest Paper and coloured them with copics. then I cut them out and added some details like clear Glaze pen on Ellie's toes and on the balloon, and a little shimmer on the flower with my yellow Spica glitter pen. The layout is this week's Mojo Monday sketch, Mojo112.

I ran some Prism Spring Willow Medium through my swiss dots Cuttlebug folder before stitching it to the Island Mist Light layer. The patterned strips are from my Cosmo Cricket Early Bird 6x6 mini deck and they're layered onto Island Mist Dark. I added three poppy Glitter Dots to help highlight the sentiment (which reads: I would never forget your birthday! and is included with Ellie-phant). It's difficult to see in the photo but shows up much better IRL. Ellie and the balloon are popped for dimension and I added some black hemp as the balloon string.

Have you taken a look at all the gorgeous samples on Bloggabella yet? They're fabulous, so be sure to pop over for a peek, and leave some love while you're there for a chance to win some Bella Bucks!!! Also, next week's theme has already been announced...create something using the original line of Bella Characters. Now, you have all weekend and next week to play along so no excuses, k? :)

Thanks for stopping by!
