Happy Thoughts

It's friday once again,(woohoo!) which means another Bellariffic Challenge.  This weeks challenge was using a Ketto.

So for my card I decided upon Anise Ketto.  I wanted to use some new papers I got from the Jack & Jill collection by Prima.  I love all the papers in this 6x6 pk, all soft tones.

As usual stamped on bella's bestest paper with black memento ink, and colored up with my prismacolor pencils and blended with gamsol.  I did her skin tones using Copics E000, E00, E01, E11. She was cut out with a circle nestie, and the brown layer underneath was a new s/binder die called Eyelet circles. I used a Martha Stewart border punch for the white strip. The little sentiment is from the set billboardabellas words only.

I saw this sketch layout  from i(heart)2stamp and thought it would work perfectly for my card.  Although I altered it a bit, I still followed it somewhat.

Finished it off with some stitching,  glossy accents on the centers of the flowers and glitter on her wings, and along the bottom of her dress.

 Next weeks challenge is a sketch from Elaineabella. If you would like to play along send your card to Emily by thursday at 5.  There are some bella bucks up for grabs! Here is the sketch:

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend.  Thanks for stopping by.
