Free Form challenge

Happy Friday, and time for another bellariffic challenge.  This weeks theme was Free Form - any type of card you want as long as it includes a Bella image.
So for this week I pulled out my new stamp I picked up from Stamping Bella at Scrapfest called Paisley Pixie.  I just adore these little pixies.

As usual, the image is stamped on bella's bestest paper with black memento ink and coloured her up using prismacolor pencils and gamsol.  This image is just a bit too large for the s/binder dies, so I just cut it down to the size I wanted.  Layered onto some coordinating cardstock and stitched around the image. I used some designer papers from  My Mind's Eye called Good day Sunshine.  I punched an eyelet border using a MS border punch.  I used a Bella sentiment - well only part of it - the actual sentiment says A Big Thank You - well it was too big, so I just stamped off the Thank You part, punched it out using an oval punch and adhered it to the front of my card. 
The ribbon is from a spool I found in a clearance bin at Micheals a while back.  I just love the brightness of the yellow, so springy!
Finished touches - lots of glitter.

Be sure to stop over at Bloggabella to see all the other amazing 'free form' cards that were submitted this week.  Leave a comment for a chance to win some bella bucks.

With Mother's day a couple of weeks away, we decided next week's challenge would be just that - Mother's Day. Hope you have time to join in the fun!

Thanks for stopping by.  I wish everyone a wonderful Easter weekend.
