Bellarific Friday: Mother's Day

Hi all,

I LOVE FRIDAYYYYYS! I am one of the lucky people that gets to work Monday to Friday and be off on Saturdays and Sundays.  Usually in the hospitality industry, not many people have that luxury, but I am so grateful I have found a position in my field that allows me to do that!  So, when Friday arrives, I am genuinely excited!

Well, we have come to another awesome Bellarific Friday challenge over on the Bloggabella, and I must say, it is the perfect time for this!  Last week, we were challenged to make a Mother's Day card, just in time for the big event.  So now, you can check out what everyone made for the moms in their lives!

I went with a clean and elegant style this week - and NO colouring!  That is almost sacrilege to me, but I did it!
ALL of my cardstock is white today...nice and clean, but still a lot going on.

I cut out a circle of white CS with my Classic Circle Nesties, then sponged Sahara Sand ink on the circle.  Then, I stamped the absolutely beautiful Dandelion Wisps image in Versamark ink onto the circle, and embossed it with Gold EP.  I added some shadow to the dandelion with some charcoal pencil just for a bit of depth.  I mounted that onto a larger white circle, then onto that massive intricate frame using my Parisien Motifs Shapeabilities.

The sentiment is from a Verve set, and I stamped it in black ink onto white CS, and cut it out with my Fancy Tags die from Spellbinders.  I added some Sahara Sand sponging to that, as well as some rhinestones.
For the layer underneath, I stamped the dandelion again twice in Sahara Sand ink, and outlined the entire layer with a Krylon gold pen. 

Please make sure you stop by the Stamping Bella blog to check out what the other Babes have created as well as the entire Sistahood!

Next week's challenge: May flowers!
Make something that has flowers on it (image, papers, etc.), and send it to Emily ( by Thursday night, and your card will be published on the company blog, and you will be entered to win some Bella Bucks!

Don't forget to "Like" Stamping Bella on Facebook, and you can also join in the fun on Da Forum - we are chatting it up and uploading all of our pics over there!  We will be running challenges as well, so make sure you are stopping in regularly!  It's a great place to ask questions to the Bella Babes as well if you need any advice :-)

Hope you enjoyed, and thanks for stopping by!
