Pop it Up!

I hope you had a chance to play along with us bellababes in this weeks challenge.
Our challenge was to 'pop' up something on your card, whether it be the image, embellishments, whatever your heart desired.

For my card this week I coloured up Execubella.  I love how she turned out!

Matched my colours with some papers from my scrap bin- you never know what one might find! The paper is from MME - Penny Lane. As always, I stamped her on bella's bestest paper and coloured with prismacolour pencils and blended with gamsol.

After cutting her out with the square die I layered it onto a piece of lime green, then popped this part of the image onto a dark purple square.  I used an EK Success scallop border punch for the blue piece.  I added a piece of blue seam binding ribbon on the top right corner, snipped off the metal posts from the brad and popped the brad on top of the ribbon. Added some glitter around the light to finish it off.

Be sure to hop over to Bloggabella to see all of this weeks submissions, leave a comment for a chance to win some bella bucks.

Next weeks challenge is use FALL COLOURS - another simple challenge ladies, so hope to see lots of submissions next week.  Just email your card to Emily by thursday night.

Enjoy your weekend- I hope we see a bit of sun and some warmer weather - we have had rain all week.

Thanks for dropping by,
