Bellarific Friday: Your Favourite Stamp!

Hi all,
Wow, what a late post - usually my Friday posts go live at midnight, but last night I had some computer troubles, and I wasn't able to schedule it!
So, I'd still like to share Bellarific Friday with you!

Our Bellarific Friday challenge this week was to use our favourite image from Stamping Bella!  I'm pretty sure the majority of people agree that they can't choose a favourite, so we are all cheaters.  LOL

I have used this image several times, and I think it's definitely one of the best, so that's why I chose it.  Here's my card:

My card base is Basic Gray CS, my patterned papers are from the My Mind's Eye Lime Twist collection called Happy Go Lucky, and my mats are black.  The strip across the middle has a black piece punched with a Martha Stewart edge punch, and then I added an Old Olive square on top (embossed with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder).  I topped that off with some black grosgrain ribbon tied in a knot. 

I stamped the always cute and useful AllBoxedUpABella onto Bella's Bestest Paper using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I coloured her with Copics and used my Prismacolor Pencils for shading.  For the green present, that was paper pieced using the same paper pack.
I punched her out with Classic Square Nesties, and added some sponging with Basic Gray ink. 

Next week's challenge??? A sketch!  Just make a project using the sketch below and any of the images sold at Stamping Bella and send to Emily (emily@stampingbella.com) by Thursday night.  You'll be entered to win some Bella Bucks and your card will be published on the Bloggabella!
I don't think anyone could turn away Bella Bucks, especially with the release Emily has out right now!!!  You all need to participate!
Remember to also link your card on SCS (BELLARIFFIC0212)


Hope you enjoyed, and thanks for stopping by!
