Bellarific Friday: Free Form

Hi all!

Another amazing TGIF to you!  This is totally my favourite day of the week, I think :)
It's time for another Bellarific Friday post over on the Bloggabella - this week was FREE FORM! That means anything goes - as long as you used a stamp sold by Stamping Bella, you were allowed to invent the rest!

Here's mine:

My card base is Kraft CS, and my green and orange patterned papers are from Cosmo Cricket's Salt Air is STUNNING! Everything was matted with black, and I added some stitching with my Janome Sew Mini machine.  On the orange pieces, I added a miscellaneous rhinestone to each corner. 

I stamped the adorable Rain-Never-Stopped-Me-abella onto Bella's Bestest Paper with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I cut her out with my new Nesties (that I bought at ScrapFest on April 8) - I think it is Label....18?  There are so many of these shapes now, it's impossible to keep track.  I matted that with black as well, and added some stitching again.  I coloured her up with Copics, and some Prismacolor Pencils for shading, and I added a cute Martha Stewart Dahlia sticker to the corner, and I stuck some miscellaneous green leaves underneath.

Here's the inside: I have used the fabulous sentiment that comes with the Bella stamp to decorate!  It says, "Anyone who says sunshine brings happiness has never danced in the rain" - isn't that awesome???

Make sure you stop by the Bella blog to see what all the Baberoonis have made, and remember to post your cards in the Stamping Bella Forum!

What's next week's theme?  Mother's Day!  Just make a Mother's Day card using any of the images from Stamping Bella that fit for the challenge, and email to Emilybella ( by Thursday night, and your card will be published on the Bloggabella, and you are entered to win some BellaBucks!

Hope you enjoyed, and thanks for stopping by!
