Bellas Twisted Challenge 10

Hi All,

I decided to make a card for the Stamping Bella challenge found HERE. The challenge is to make a project using purple, and the twist is to use some paper piecing. If you have neve done paper piecing, it is very simple, and you can see my tutorial HERE.

Here is my card:

First of all, let me apologize - I don't know why I took this picture on a slant like that.

My card base is Whisper White, then a layer of Basic Black, then a layer of retired SU Slumber Party DSP. I added some piercing in the top right corner of that with one of my Ornare templates. I also tied some Eggplant ribbon along the bottom.

The main panel is all punched out using Long Rectangle Nestabilities - white and black panels. The image was stamped on the white panel with Memento Tuxedo ink, and coloured with Copic markers.
Her name is imeldabella
She is a girl after my own heart! The paper piecing shows up here - I stamped all of the shopping boxes onto the DSP, cut them out, and layered them on. Notice how pretty her stack of shopping is!

The sentiment is also from Stamping Bella - they have some great sentiments, and they are sold individually, so you can pick and choose the ones you want! Mine says "have a magical day", and it is stamped on white CS and punched out with SU's Modern Label punch, and the black layer is punched out with one of the Lots of Tags Sizzlets and my Big Shot.
Hope you enjoyed, and thanks for stopping by!
