Bellarific-ally Fabulous!

Happy Bellarific Friday!!! This week's challenge was a sketch...my fave!!! I decided to use a sentiment as my main image for two reasons. One, I love this sentiment and I've had it far too long for it to remain uninked any longer. Two, and probably the main reason, I injured my shoulder and I can't stamp for very long before it starts to ache...sigh...hopefully by resting it I'll be back in the swing of things in no time.

I flipped the sketch to fit my fabulous sentiment from Stamping Bella. After the sentiment was stamped onto Bella's Bestest Cream Paper I cut it out with petite oval Nestabilities and ran it through my swiss dots Cuttlebug folder. I layered up some patterned papers from My Mind's Eye Quite Contrary line (the Little Miss Muffet collection) with chocolate chip and vibrant pink...added a cup of stitching and a teaspon of border punch, then topped it off with some aqua bonbons and a fun burlap flower. I've been on the hunt for these burlap flowers ever since I saw them on Jody's blog...thanks for pointing me in the right direction GF!

Did you play along this week? Well I can't wait to see the round-up on Bloggabella and I hope you'll join me there for a look. Don't forget to leave some love while you're there for a chance to win some Bella Bucks.

Next week's Bellarific Friday Challenge is Gettin' Hitched. Create a wedding, shower, or anniversary card and email it to Em by next Thursday to be included in the Friday round-up. Now get stamping...you have all weekend!  :)

Thanks for stopping by!
