I just love using my bellas to make cards! They make it so easy to make adorable cards. This was done for this week's sketch challenge (BSC22) and for last week's color challenge. These colors are so fresh and fun together and it's such a treat to have Sparkle doing the Bella forum color challenges because she also puts the CTMH colors on there as well, so no more trying to compare and hunt down the closest color! Yay ^_~


This one uses one of those adorable house mouse images that my secret sister sent me and also some ribbon she sent. I was following an older SCS sketch challenge and after I made it I realized I should have just aligned the main image on the left like I had wanted to in the first place, but it's still cute and the only person that will really notice is me. Uses some scraps from the old CTMH Lazy Days paper pack, garden green buttons, white waxy flax, and a cute thank you charm I got on clearance at Joanns (12 for $1). And there is a lot of coloring to do on these little mouse images, lol. I'm so used to coloring bellas that this was quite a feat for me and I was half tempted to just leave the rest uncolored after finishing the mouse and pencil.


And this one was just me experimenting. I tried random stamping again and found I am still not too good at it. I know the old addage practice makes perfect but I hate wasting paper on bombed efforts, lol. A little galaxy gold distressing on the embossing and around the sentiment though you can't tell at all in the picture. It's quite subtle in real life as well. The gold glitter with my glue pen really came out on the butterfly and I hope to get some gold wire later to create some antennae for the butterfly since I cut them off while cutting her out, lol. Colors are Vineyard Berry, Topiary, Bamboo, and Desert sand and I used the Butterfly Kiss and For Every Occassion stamp sets.
