Bellarific Friday: May Flowers

Hi all,

OMG, when can we get some sunshine in the Toronto area???  I am ready for the tank tops, the dresses, and the sandals...hmph.  Well, this week's Bellarific Friday challenge was May Flowers!  We were supposed to use flowers on our cards - the image, the papers...anything, really.  I found the PERFECT image for this...I LOVE it.

This is my only image from the Lori Boyd collection so far, but it is so cute, and so easy to use on any type of card, I will have to get myself some more!  I chose to use Pookie Lollipop because well, she's a flower in a flower pot! 

She was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Bella's Bestest Paper, and I coloured her mostly with Copics, and some Prismacolor Pencils for the grass and the outside shading.  I added some Wheat Dew Drop sponging around that rectangle, mounted it onto black CS, and added some stitching around that.

The base is Kraft CS, and the patterned papers are from Basic Grey's Olivia paper pack - the patterns and colours are delicious.  They were mounted with black also, and I added straight and zig zag stitching around those layers.
I took some white organdy ribbon, and made a bow using my Bow Easy, and attached it to the bottom with a Mini Glue dot.

Next week's challenge???  It is to use KRAFT!  Submit your creation using Kraft paper or cardstock to Emily ( by Thursday night, and she will publish your card on the Bloggabella, and you will be eligible to win some Bella Bucks!  Can't wait to see what everyone comes up with!

Hope you enjoyed, and thanks for stopping by!

Awesome - I always envision clay pots - thank you for inspiring me to color outside the box. The gray matches beautifully with your design paper and looks great with a pink Pokie. Beautiful card!
