Sweet Pea

Hi everyone.

Hope everyone is having a good weekend so far.  The weather is nice here, cool, but the sun is shining - typical fall day. 

Today I would like to share with you a cute little card I did up last week.
Let me introduce baby bella pea.  Now isn't she just the cutest? Doesn't she have the cutest cheeks?

Since bella pea had little flowers on her outfit, I knew she had to be colored in pinks.  I had a piece of this DP paper from Heidi Grace Designs, which knew would be perfect.
I colored her with prismacolor pencils  and blended with gamsol (OMS) on
bella's bestest paper with black memento ink.

I cut the image with my oval nestie, and then used my new labels #14 die for the pink layer.  I thought the shape of this fit perfectly with this image.

I thought I had a bella sentiment called sweet pea, but checking through my binder and Emily's website I couldn't find it - must of been dreaming!!! - Maybe Emily needs to get a sentiment that says "sweet-pea" what do you think? I then realized the paper had that same sentiment on it, so I strategically cut the paper so the words would show.  I did some stitching, added a piece of white ric rak and some glitter on bella pea.  I first had intentions of using some small buttons on the card, but then decided on this little pink flower bud- I think that was a better choice!

That's it for today peeps, plans for today are getting my papers cut for my class at Paper Pickle this tuesday. We will be making 2 great Christmas cards. For those in the area we have opened a second class date, so if you were unable to make the first class, check with Paper Pickle on the second class date.  Hope to see you there.

One more thing, this weeks challenge is a sketch from Elainabella. 
This is such an easy peasy sketch, so hope you can join in the fun.  Email Emily your card by thursday at 5, and you will have a chance to win some bella bucks!

Thanks for stopping by, see you soon!
