A bit of Luck!

The days are flying by, and here we are again for another bellariffic friday challenge.  This weeks challenge was to use a stamp that has never seen ink- well I must confess I have tons, yes tons of stamps that have never seen ink.

With St. Patrick's day coming up, I pulled out Goodluckabella to ink up for this challenge.

I stamped her on bella's bestest paper and coloured her using primsacolor pencils and blended with gamsol(oms).  Cut her out using an oval s/binder die, left it in place then sponged some wheat versamagic ink around her, layered this onto a piece of green c/s which was cut with a scallop die.  DP is from Basic Grey called Marjolaine- (gorjuss papah)! The white decorative border was punched from a new EK Success punch I bought at Paper Pickle last week.  I am lovin this punch. Seam binding ribbon is from Martha Stewart - I must confess, I forgot I had this ribbon, I bought this last year sometime, along with 2 other colours. 
Finished it off with a green rhinestone and some glitter.

Be sure to hop over to Bloggabella to see what the other babes created for this challenge.  Next weeks challenge is a colour challenge. See the swatch below.  Incorporate these colours in your card and your good to go! 
Want to win some Bella Bucks? then email Emily your card by thursday night to have a chance to win.

Have a good weekend everyone.  Thanks for stopping by...

Ooooh, I love her. And you're right, the paper is gorgeous and the border punch needs to find its way to NY. How is it that Paper Pickle can get in new punches but Michaels (my only outlet here bawahwa) can't? Between you and Linda this week I'm jonesing for a trip to Chatham.

You and Linda are on a roll with punches, love this one too. It's so nice to see new tools being used, TFS. Also your card is beautiful, you did an amazing coloring job on her and she coordinates so well with the DP.
Have a nice weekend !!!
