Bellarific Friday: 4th sketch of 2012!

Hi all!
TGIF!  Welcome to your Friday again!  I hope everyone's week has gone smoothly, and you better have something good brewing for this weekend!  Make sure you enjoy it.
Did you have time to get crafty this week?  Either way, you can head over and check out Bellarific Friday to get some inspiration.

This week's challenge is another amazing sketch!  Here's a glimpse:

And here's mine:

I decided to make a baby card, but with a different line of images :-)  And I had to turn the panel on it's side so my image would fit properly.
My card base is Sahara Sand CS.  All my patterned papers are from the Sassafras Wee Bundle collection and my mats are black.  The strip across the middle is Sahara Sand CS and the black mat is punched with my SU scallop edge punch.  I tied some So Saffron grosgrain ribbon around that base layer.
I used the patterned paper and black CS along with my SU Photo Corner punch for the corners, and I added some white Martha Stewart pearls to those.

I stamped the adorable Froggy KETTO stamps onto Bella's Bestest Paper using Memento Tuxedo black ink.  I coloured them in with Copics and added grass and shading with Prismacolor Pencils and OMS.  I cut them out with Label 14 Nesties, and added some sponging with Bashful Blue ink.
I am thinking there is lots of great spacce there for a sentiment, so when it comes time to use the card, I will choose something just right!

Next week's challenge???  Polka Dots!  I love this challenge!  Just make a card showing off some polka dots and use any image sold at Stamping Bella.  Email your card to Emily ( by Thursday night, and your card will be published on the Bloggabella, and you'll be entered to win some Bella Bucks (aka free products from Bellaland)!

AND, if you want another chance at some more moolah, you must post your card over at SplitCoast Stampers!  When you upload your card, make sure you include the keyword BELLARIFFIC0712 so that we can all see it in our gallery!
Also, hop over to the Bella forum and check out the chatter there!

Have an amazing weekend!

Hope you enjoyed, and thanks for stopping by!

Your Froggy's are adorable! I've totally missed them in the shop. They're quirky but cute and add a neat twist to a baby card! Soooo creative.
