Bellarific Friday: A Sketch!

Hi all!

Welcome to another Friday - I'm a happy camper.  I have some fun plans this weekend, including a water park (and maybe some cleaning, but we will ignore that until it approaches).  And definitely some stamping, if I have anything to say about it.

As usual, Em has an awesome post going up on the Bloggabella to showcase everyone's amazing creations with Ebrubella's sketch!

Ebru gave us a choice of the circle or the square!  How awesome is she?

Here's mine:
I went with the square version.  My base is Ballet Blue CS, and I added a polka dot piece of Almost Amethyst patterned paper with a black and a white mat.  I rounded the 2 right-hand corners of that layer with a corner rounder punch. 
On top of that, I added a black scallop circle (cut with an SU Bigz die and my Big Shot), and I ran that through my Big Shot in the Lots of Dots Cuttlebug embossing folder for some more texture.  I punched out some white arrows with the My Way punch, and stuck 'em on.
The sentiment comes with the image (bonus!).

The flower is an SU Sticky Cuts die cut covered with some yummy micro fine glitter, and I punched out some mini flowers, scrunched them together, added a blue brad to the middle, and stuck them onto the glittery one.

I stamped Perk Me Up PEEPs onto Bella's Bestest Paper with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured them with Copics.  Those little stick figures are adorable - and any friend that drinks coffee would appreciate this card!!!

Next week's challenge??? Christmas in July!  Christmas cards are my absolute FAVOURITE to make, so this is my week!  If you wanna play along, make a Christmas-y card with any of the images sold at Stamping Bella and submit to Emily ( by Thursday night - your card will be published on the blog, and you will be entered to win some BellaBucks!  Can't wait to see what you come up with!

Hope you enjoyed, and thanks for stopping by!
