Bellarific Bookworm

Happy Bellarific Friday!!! Isn't it fun to get back to Bellarific Friday Challenges after the holiday break!?! Did you play along this week? The theme was back to school...which doesn't really change my world because we don't have children.
I reached for Spencer the Bookworm from Stamping Bella for this card. I think this'll be a great card to send to one of my nephews for a job-well-done on a school project. Now I just have to get their parents to actually tell me when they have a project due! LOL!!! I used this week's Mojo sketch, Mojo120, for the layout.

I stamped Spencer with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Bella's Bestest Paper and chose a pile of bright and cheery copic markers to coordinate with the October Afternoon Night Lite patterned paper. I love love LOVE all the fun colours in this image!!! Of course, he's a boy so I couldn't, in good conscience, glitter him up, but I did add three coats of clear Glaze pen on the lenses of his glasses.

For the rest of the card I layered up a couple of the patterned papers, added some stitching, added dimension with two Cuttlebug folders, and a row of stars with my Martha Stewart star border punch. The sentiment was a perfect fit for the orange banner and I continued the star theme with a bigger star accent topped with a ruby red Bonbon.

Don't forget to pop over to Bloggabella to see all the back-to-school submissions and leave a comment while you're there...it could win you $10 Bella Bucks!!!

Thanks for stopping by!
