First official Bella post

This is it ladies, my first official Stamping Bella DT post.  I think I am still on cloud nine from the news yesterday.  How exciting was all that, not one new Babarooni but three! So last night the Babes were emailing back and forth, finding out about each other, and doing some chit chat,  it was a blast!

So onto my card.  I've had several requests from co-workers on needing a card for 'expectant mothers" so I decided to color up Pregabella. I stamped her on
Bella's Bestest paper with black memento ink.  I found this piece of DP in my scrap box (I never throw anything away!)and thought it would work perfectly, so that was my inspiration for the colors I chose to color her with. She was colored with pencils and gamsol.  I wanted to use the sentiment "you glow girl" on my card.  I played around with some different dies and chose to use a ribbon tag nestie.  I finished her off with some oyster baubles in the corners, dark brown satin ribbon, some stitching and a tiny bit of glitter for that bit of 'glow' expectant moms have!

Well that's it for today ladies. Back later in the week with another card.

Just a reminder, this weeks theme for bellarific friday is animals.  Although the DT challenge is over, there were so many awesome submissions for that event, lets try to continue with as many if not more on a regular basis,  so if you would like to participate, please email your card to Emily by thursday night. Oh and don't forget Tantilizing Toosday- some great deals ladies.
