Bellarifically Tea-riffic!

Happy Bellarific Friday! This week's challenge was flowers...flowers of any kind...stamps, paper, embellishments, etc. I did my darndest to use as many types of flowers as I could. Really though, it wasn't a tough challenge...flowers are wonderful and go with pretty much anything!

So on to my card...I stamped Tilly the Teacup Girl from Stamping Bella with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Bella's Bestest Cream Paper and coloured her with copics. I adore her hair...OMG!!! I was on the phone with Dana while I was colouring her hair and I just kept oooh-ing and aaaaah-ing at all the gorgeous swirls. It was quite funny, actually! I stamped the teacup a second time so I could cut it out and pop it for dimension.

The colours are totally inspired by the piece of sweet flowery patterned paper from my October Afternoon Thrift Shop 8x8 pad. I added some kraft cardstock into the mix because my fellow Babe Jeanie has a That's Krafty challenge over on her blog. It's simple...just use some kraft cardstock on your creation. I even used kraft ribbon too! Oh, and the layout is the Sweet Stop Sketch, SSS53, from last week. The flowers were punched from cardstock and I added some light amber Bonbons to the centers.

Next week's Bellarific Friday Challenge is a colour challenge...chocolate, soft pink and celery green. Use any Stamping Bella image along with these colours to create your project then email a photo to Em by next Thursday to be included in the Friday round-up. You could win Bella Bucks just for playing along.

Don't forget to hop over to Bloggabella to see this week's flowery creations and leave some love while you're there for a chance to win Bella Bucks.

Thanks for stopping by!
