Bellarific Friday: Anything Goes!

Hi all,
Happy Friday!  I hope you all have some amazing and fun plans for this weekend.  On the other hand, it is pretty satisfying to get some work done around the house, so I couldn't blame you for that, if that's what you had in mind :-)

Well, as you MUST know, it is time for another Bellarific Friday!  For this challenge, we were all given free reign - it was an Anything Goes challenge!  I'm sure this type of challenge is a favourite for many crafters...I just love the freedom of using any image and doing anything I want!  I hope you were all able to play along and show off some of your Bella images!

Here's mine:

My card base is Sahara Sand CS.  My patterned papers are from Echo Park's line called Victoria Gardens - the colours and patterns are so sweet and girly!  My mats are black and white, as usual.  On the pink layer, I went around it with some black stitching using my Janome Sew Mini machine.  The white piece was punched at the bottom with and edge punch from EK Success.  I did a bit of zig-zagging on the diamond layer as well, and added some pink Martha Stewart pearls to those corners. 

I stamped the beautiful Blow A Kiss Jane by Jane Davenport onto Bella's Bestest Paper using Versafine Onyx Black ink, and embossed her with Clear EP.  I added some Basic Gray sponging around the girl, and some Pretty In Pink sponging around the outside, and matted that with a black piece.

Next week's challenge???  Our 4th Sketch of the year!  Make a card using the sketch below and any of the images sold at Stamping Bella and submit to Emily ( by Thursday night.  You'll be entered to win some Bella Bucks (aka money for free stuff) and your card will be published on the Bloggabella!  Can't wait to see what you come up with!

Hope you enjoyed, and thanks for stopping by!

Oh my...I've had this stamp and realized I couldn't color it so I've been fretting about how to use it...I love your beautiful card. Your addition of the soft shading brings some wonderful color in. Love it!
