Bellarific Baking Turtle

Happy Bellarific Friday and HAPPY BIRTHDAY EM!!!!!!!!! Yup, that's right...today is da Bella's birthday and I think she might have a little present for us with a wee surprise release!!! I'm so excited to see what she's got up her sleeve!!!

But first, my card for today. This week's challenge was a fun sketch by Jodibella and I chose to use Turtle Tots Baker, cause she's baking up a birthday cake to celebrate Em's birthday!!! And Em, this card's in the mail to you but it'll be a little late arriving...I'll blame it on cross-border snail mail...wink!

I stamped the sweet turtle with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Bella's Bestest Cream paper and coloured it with copics. I added some fuschia sparkle with a Spica glitter pen and gave the mixing bowl a glossy look with my clear Glaze pen. The colours are pulled from the October Afternoon Thrift Shop patterned papers. I added plenty of stitching on the patterned layers and used my new Martha Stewart Modern Garland border punch on the vibrant pink layer, which gave me the perfect opportunity to add some Bonbons along the punched edge.

Next week's Bellarific Challenge is square cards. To play along simply create a square card using Stamping Bella images and email a picture of your creation to Em by next Thursday to be included in the Friday round-up. You could win Bella Bucks just for playing along! Now let's hop over to Bloggabella to see today's round-up and maybe, just maybe, Em will have some new images to share too!!!

Thanks for stopping by!
