Bellarific Friday: 6th Sketch!

Hi all,
Welcome to another Friday!!!  We have had summer-like weather this week in Toronto, and today it DROPS to a very cool and rainy couple of days.  It was so lovely while it lasted.

Let me start with this: have you SEEN the new release Emily has put out over at Stamping Bella???  There are SO many new images, and they are AMAZING!!!!!!!!
There are new Ramonas, new Uptowns, new stamps from Vicki Boutin, new stamps that Em herself has designed, and more!  You need to check it out, and fill up your shopping cart!

OK, now that's out of the way, we can move on to another fun topic!  We have another Bellarific Friday to share with you, and hopefully you were able to play along!  We were given our 6th sketch for 2012, and here's one last glimpse:

Another great job by Ebrubella!

Here's mine:
My card base is white CS, the patterned papers are from SU's Manchester DSP pack, and the mats are black.  I added some CTMH square rhinestones to the corners, and the strip across the middle has a punched scallop edge (although it's mostly covered up), and I tied some black grosgrain ribbon around the middle.

I stamped the beautiful Blow A Kiss Jane onto black CS in Versamark ink and embossed her with white EP.  If you saw my card from my last post, you'll be able to see that I'm on a kick with white embossing on coloured or dark cardstock.
I matted that with white CS, then again with black.
I stamped the sentiment onto white CS with black ink, cut it out and added it to the corner.

Next week's challenge???  Spring or Easter!  Make a card with that theme using any of the images sold at Stamping Bella and send it to Emily ( by Thursday night.  You have a chance to win some Bella Bucks, and your card will be published on the Bloggabella!  Can't wait to see what you come up with!

Have a great weekend!
Hope you enjoyed, and thanks for stopping by!
