Bellariffic Friday and a Prezzie

Yay! It's Friday again.  So excited about this weekend.  Linda, Paula, Cath and myself are heading to Bellaland on Saturday to meet up with Ebru and Dana (who is in Toronto this week).  How fun will that be - having all us Bellababes under one roof! So if you are in the neighbourhood of Bellaland, stop in for a visit.

Onto the real reason why you stopped in - to check out my card for this weeks Belllariffic challenge.  I share with you Izzie has a Prezzie.

Now I know she is not a Christmas image, but I wanted to make her into a Christmas card so looking through my Christmas papers I came across this pretty paper from the Memory Box Gingercake pack. Perfect!

Stamped Izzie on bella's bestest paper and colored her with prismacolor pencils and blended with gamso.  Her skin tones were done with Copics.  After cutting her out with the oval s/binder die, I cut the pink layer with my new S/binder beaded oval die. It all came together with some lace, ribbon, glitter and a rhinestone on Izzie's present.

So the challenge this week was 1,2,3.

1 image - Izzie with a prezzie
2 papers  - I used memory box
3 embellishments - glitter, ribbon/lace and a rhinestone

For next weeks challenge it is a Christmas/Holiday card. With all the Bella Christmas images out there, it shouldn't be too hard to do this challenge.  So lets see what you got!

Have a great weekend everyone.  Thanks for stopping by.

Very cute Christmas card. Great idea. The colors tie it perfectly to your theme and that paper is yummy. Could you have asked for those swirls to be any more perfect? I mean they look like an embellishment! Can't wait to meet up with you in Bellaland. Woo Hoo - a whole day with the Babes!
