Bellarific Anabel

T.G.I.F!!!! And even better, T.G.I.B.F. (Thank Goodness It's Bellarific Friday!!!). LOL!!! This week was a colour challenge with pink, green and chocolate...yum! What a delish combination!

I decided to use a new Lulu for my card today...please meet Anabel...she's part of the April release from Stamping Bella. Does she not look absolutely gorgeous with that ball gown!!

I stamped Anabel with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Bella's Bestest Cream Paper then coloured her with copics. I gave her glossy black hair with my black Glaze pen then added sparkle to the icing on the cake by colouring over it with my clear Spica glitter pen. The image is cut out with square Nestabilities and I used Mercy's Tuesday Sketch from a few weeks ago for the layout, MTSC70. I used one of the pink patterned papers from the Quite Contrary collection and layered everything with chocolate. I had a really tough time with colours when I was editing these photos in Photoshop, so you'll have to just trust me when I say I used Pink Pirouette, Certainly Celery, and chocolate. I added plenty of stitching and finished with three cotton candy Bonbons in the bottom right corner.

Next week's Bellarific Friday challenge is a sketch designed by our very own Jeanieabella. Here it is so you can get started on it over the weekend. Just email your submission to Em by next Thursday to be included in the Friday round-up.

Em will be posting this week's round-up on Bloggabella on Monday, so be sure to check back then to see all the pink, green and chocolate eye candy. 

Thanks for stopping by!
