You perk me up

I can't believe it is Friday already.  This week has flown by- maybe it's because of the nice weather we have been having. The flower gardens are doing well, lots of greenery sprouting through the ground,  buds on the trees, and happy birds chirping! Awe the sounds and smells of spring, don't you just love it?

For this weeks bellariffic friday challenge we had a sketch to follow by Lindabella. Did you get a chance to play along?

For my card this week I choose Perk me Up Peeps - love these little peeps!

As usual, I used bella's bestest paper and colour with prismacolor pencils and blended with gamsol/oms. I used oval s/binder dies to cut out the image as well as the scallop layer underneath.  I left the die in place and sponged some wheat versafine around the image, it wasn't dark enough for what I wanted so added a bit of wild honey distress ink.
Papers I used are from the 6x6 Basic Grey - Sugar Rush. This stamp also came with a sentiment which I used - I stamped the sentiment then cut it in half to make it fit on the card. Finished with some stitching, and lots of glitter on the heart.

Be sure to stop over at Bloggabella to see how creative the rest of the sistah's were this week.  Be sure to leave a comment or two, for a chance to win some bella bucks.

Next weeks challenge is 'free form', so anything you want- layout or colours- your choice, as long as you use a bella image.  Then email it to Emily by thursday night.

Have a wonderful weekend.  Thanks for dropping by.
