Buds Girl

Well it's Monday, and you know what that means - yes, back to the grind - well for most of us that is. It was a pretty good weekend all around, and even the weather co-operated, cool but at least the sun was shinning.  I didn't get a whole lot done in the line of card making, but did get this one done last night.

I coloured up a Mo image called Buds Girl, available in rubber at Stamping Bella.

She was coloured using both Prismacolor and Caran D'ache pencils, on bella's bestest paper. To cut her out I used my new s/binder die # 18! Don't you just love it? Since I used the largest size die in the set, I traced the outside of the frame on a piece of pink cardstock, so I could cut it out free hand to use as a border.
I also used some new papers - yes, I bought more, not that I needed any, but couldn't resist.  This paper is from Crate called Emma's shoppe collection.  This particular piece I used is a 12 x 12, only because in the 6x6 pk, they didn't include the yellow gingham, (like what were they thinking?) and I just needed that, so that's why I opt for the 12 x 12. I used an EK Success border punch down both sides of the gingham called Abstract Flower, then used another border die from MFT.  Finished it off with some ribbon, a double bow using the bow easy,  and pearls. Card measures 5 1/2 x 5 1/2.

So this friday April 1, we are back with our bellariffic friday challenge.  This week is POLKA DOTS!!! Hope you play along, if so, make sure you email Emily your submission by thursday night, for a chance to win some bella bucks!

Have a great day!
