Celebrate

For today's card I decided to ink up my Celebrate definition block from Stamping Bella and let it take center stage. Have I told you how much I love these definition stamps??? Yes, I think I have, but I'll tell you again...LOL!!! This one could be used for soooooooo  many occasions, but I turned it into a birthday card by incorporating one of the cupcake images from the Mommy and Baby Cupcake stamp. I used Jen's Sketch For You To Try for the layout.

I reached for my Cosmo Cricket Delovely mini deck for plenty of colour on this card, but I toned it down just a little with a layer of kraft cardstock. Thanks to my fellow Bella Babe Jeanie for reminding me to use kraft...and now I can link this card up to her That's Krafty Thursday Challenge.

The Celebrate definition was stamped directly onto patterned paper then cut out with Nestabilties. The cupcake was stamped onto Bella's Bestest Paper and coloured with copics. I added sparkle with some Spica glitter pens. The little bit of yellow ribbon is from my stash and I added some aqua Bonbons for sparkle.

Bellarific Fridays are on hold for two weeks while Em is travelling and we'll resume again on June 25th with this fabulous sketch from Jodibella. There's plenty of time for you to play along, just be sure to email your submission to Em by June 24th in order to be included in the round-up.

Thanks for stopping by!
