Sketch #7

Welcome everyone to another Bellariffic friday.  Can you believe that we are up to Sketch #7 already?
We had another wonderful sketch to follow this week. I'm sure I will use this layout again.

Before I begin, I have some exciting bella news to share with you. We have a new 'babe' in the house! Woohoo! Join me in welcoming Natasha Kara - and you can view her blog here. While your visiting her blog leave her some love! :)

Now for my card, I'm using one of my favourite 'fella' images.  This one always seems to be a hit.  Let me introduce Beerafella.

Wow, okay does this seem bright to you? best get your sunglasses out! LOL.  But isn't he a handsome guy?  Well you know how I started - stamped him on bella's bestest paper and coloured him with copics. Shading was done with pencils and gamsol.  I based by colours on this paper from Basic Grey - Marjolaine. In behind the image I used an MFT ric rac die to cut a piece of grey c/s.  As the sketch stated -  I needed a sentiment, so I used a happy birthday sentiment.  I stamped it on white c/s using black memento, and  a brad to finish it off.

Want a chance to win $10 in bella bucks? Then hop over to Bloggabella, check out all then entries for this week, and leave a comment - it's that easy.

Next weeks challenge is a Shower Card - bridal/baby or rain in the image. I know what image I'm going to use - how about you? Email Emily your card by thursday night or upload it on SCS using the keyword BELLARIFFIC1412.

I wish you a wonderful Easter weekend.  Enjoy!
