Hi everyone!  It's seems like forever since my last post - it was only 4 days ago!  With this being friday, that means a bellariffic challenge, and this weeks challenge was a 'birthday' theme.

Today I coloured up Abby, from Stamping Bella.  I thought she would make a cute little girls birthday card. 

I knew I wanted to colour her dress in lime green even before I picked out papers. After she was stamped on bella's bestest paper I used copics to colour her.  I did the shading and grass using prismacolour pencils. The paper I used is by MME - Happier.

Dies used are spellbinder petite ovals and petite scallop oval, long rectangle and long scallop rectangle.  Since Abby was a bit longer that the die I wanted to use, I had to go outside the box with the balloons.

Finished up with some crystal rhinestones and lots of glitter.

Head over to bloggabella to see some more awesomeness for this weeks challenge.  Leave a comment for a chance to win $10 in bella bucks.

Next weeks challenge is sketch #17.  If you can play along this week, be sure to email your card to Emily by thursday night.  You have a chance to win $20 in bella bucks.

Well that's it for me - have yourself a wonderful weekend, see you back here real soon.

She certainly does make a cute little girl's birthday card! I love the lime green and Happier MME paper. The design is great with the balloons out of the box. Your coloring and glitter are both fabulous. I've had a fun time scrolling through and catching up today. You always have the BEST cards!
