Bella card!


I absolutely love Cosmo Cricket paper! The colors are so vintage looking....so how is it that I decided to use a Bella with it? I really don't know! I got this Bella from Karen Yardis over at SCS. I don't know the name of this one....so if YOU do, please leave a comment for me! I colored her in with Prisma colored pencils and Gamsol. The green satin ribbon is from Martha Stewart. I used the Karen Foster snap stamps for the sentiment. I cut apart each and EVERY letter.....and glued them on. I used tiny rhinestones for the letter i. I used my Copic Marker's multiliner in black to add some faux stitching around each letter.


Just wanted you to know that I am working on some pages to submit to Memory Maker's Masters contest. I probably don't have a chance in heck of ever winning, but a girl has to try doesn't she? I feel lately, when I see all of the talent out there, that my creations are not nearly as good! I am so overly critical of my own work... I am trying my heart out to get published this year!

This is really lovely, the colors are so warm. But without a doubt, my favorite accent is that satin bow. The color goes so perfectly.
