Pierce or Sew...

that is the theme for this weeks Bellariffic Challenge.  I did this card a couple of weeks ago, just waiting for the right time to post it.  When I saw what this weeks challenge was I knew it fit the bill perfectly.

Have you ever done a card and have been so thrilled with the outcome? Made you smile every time you looked at it?  Well I was thrilled with this card when it was all finished. I think it is so far my favorite card that I have done! Everything just seem to flow together wonderfully!

Okay, okay here it is: Let me introduce Babycarriageabella. 
Isn't she adorable?  Doesn't she remind you of Marlo Thomas from That Girl? Paula and I think she does.  I loved that show!

I stamped on bella's bestest paper using black memento ink.  Colored  with prismas and gamsol.  I based my colors for coloring to match this piece of DP paper I found in my scrap bucket.  All I know it is from Provocraft, don't know where I bought it, but do need to find more of it.  I used a medium scallop die from Papertrey Ink for the pink and green scallop edging.  I stitched around the card and down the green piece. I pulled out my Bow Maker to make that perfect bow, attached a button to the center of it topped off with a pearl.
And lastly lots of glitter to make this card sparkle.
So what do you think? do you like?

OMG - I thought I was the only one that finished a card and just kept looking at it with a sign of contentment. My husband often catches me and laughs. But you have good reason to with this card - it's beautiful. Your layout and coloring are perfect. And yes, it does have the Marlo Thomas look. Loved that show - she always made you smile.
