Shame on me... this is for last week's Blogger's Challenge, so it's a wee-itty-bitty-late. But at least I got it posted before I posted THIS Friday's challenge! (See next post...) *wink*
The challenge was to use punches as a primary design element. I used several circle punches to create the background of this bubbly Bella card.
A couple of weeks ago I won Blog Candy from Kerry Davis! I typically never win anything so I was completely SHOCKED when I did win! Kerry is a Bella junkie, and her Blog Candy was for several stamped Bella images. Since I don't own any Bella stamps myself, I thought it would be a good drawing for me to enter. Yahooo! Winning is so FUN!
The day before I received my Bella stamps from Kerry, I received a card in the mail from a stamper friend named Linda. (Hi Linda!!) Much to my surprise, she stamped a handful of Bella images for me too! It was a Bella-crazy week for me, and I'm just getting to using my first image! They're like gold, you know! When you only have stamped images, and not the actual stamp they have to be used at JUST the right time so they don't get used up too quickly. (Hoarders understand what I mean...)
This image was watercolored with a water brush and ink from my Stampin' Up re-inkers. I added glitz and glam to this Bella by sparkling up her necklace, dress neckline and hem, shoes, and of course the wine bottle and glasses. The sentiment is a new Memory Box stamp... it seemed appropriate for this card.
