Curly Surpisabella

I just got the Cuttlebug Embossing folder that you see used on this card and I've been totally inspired by my bellas lately, so I decided to combine the two. I just LOVE the Summer Picnic DP on page 16 in the Occassions Mini Catalog and I've got some great news for you... The Occassions Mini Catalog's dates are extended through August 10! That's an extra month and a half we have to purchase the items in that mini catty! I'm so excited!
So anyway, about this card... I paper pieced Bella's entire outfit & the gifts she's holding. The only coloring I did was on her hair and I used the Summer Sun Marker to do that. My card base is Pumpkin Pie, layered with the Cuttlebugged (Spots and Dots) Bashful Blue. I got my ribbon from good ol' Michael's & Walmart and on top of that, I added faux Bows, then layered Old Olive Cardstock under my Bella image stamped onto Glossy White CS. I used my Slit Punch on the left side and added a large orange brad that I got from Oriental Trading (a gift from my momma). It still needed something, so I punched out a Real Red layer of my Scallop Punch and layered on top using the So Many Scallops Sale-a-bration set for the Happy Birthday candle image on top.

Don't forget about my
There's blog candy to come for those who take me up on the challenge... Kailynn Grace will pick her favorite and that lucky person will get a special package from ME!
Have a wonderful day & don't forget to link me up to show off your challenge creation!
God Bless!

Love this Bella. Have her, too. You've inspired a new color combination for me. Now, if I could only find the top of my work table, I'd be ready to stamp. LOL! Lisa SBS10
