Baby shower

Hi blogging friends, how has your week been? So glad it's Friday, (and friday the 13th at that!) not only because  is it the weekend, but I'm heading off to Scrapfest with Linda and Paula. Maybe I'll see some of you there at the Stamping Bella booth!  Should be a blast!

A LITTLE PLUG FOR ME: For any of you local gals, in case you are in need of a card and don't have time to make one , Kim at Paper Pickle is now selling my cards in the store.   I have about 20 in there now, but will be bringing them in on an on-going basis.  She has been after me for the last couple of years to do this.

Well, here we have another Bellariffic friday challenge upon us. This weeks challenge is a Shower card - whether it be a bridal or baby or use rain on your card.  So I decided to make a baby shower card.
For my image I picked another oldie bella image called Pregabella.

 I started by stamping her on bella's bestest white paper using black memento ink.  She was coloured using copics and shading done with pencils.  DP is by Kaisercraft called Lil' Primrose.  I used a Quickutz alphabet set called Jacqueline  to cut out the letters for 'baby'. Used an oval and oval scallop spellbinder die as well as an EK Success scallop border punch.
Finished off with a bit of glitter, white satin ribbon and some bella pearls, I can't seem to find the link to link them too but I'm sure Emily still has them in the store.

Be sure to stop over at Blogabella and leave a comment on this weeks gorgeous submissions.  By doing so, you have a chance to win $10 in bella bucks.

Next weeks challenge is sketch #8!  Another fantastic sketch by Ebru - Thanks Ebru you sure make our life much easier :). If you would like to participate this week, which we hope you do, you can email your card to Emily or upload it on SCS  using the keyword BELLARRIFC1512.  Again, there is $20 up for grabs for playing along with us. Here is your sketch:

Have a wonderful weekend - looks like a wet one here!  Thanks for stopping by today.

Such a Sweet, sweet card Pauline. I love the lettering at the side, balances the layout very nicely. Your colouring as always rocks my friend !!

I won't be able to make it to Scrap Fest this year :( sprained my ankle and can't stand for too long. Have a terrific time !!!
