Bellarific Friday: Our 5th Sketch of 2012!

Hi all,
Welcome to another Friday and TGIF!!!  I've had a lot of fun with my Stamping Bella images this week, and I absolutely loved the sketch we got for our Bellarific Friday challenge!  Hopefully you got a chance to play along, and I'm definitely gonna hop over to the Bloggabella and check out the entries!

Here's a last peek at the sketch we had to play with:


Here's mine:
My card base is white CS - I bought a pack of white cards and envelopes on sale at Michael's - it was a 50 pack for about $12 I think.  Pretty good deal for everything being pre-cut, and envelopes included :-)
My patterned papers are from SU's Sarah DSP pack and my mats are black CS.  The vertical strip was punched with my lattice Martha Stewart edge punch.

I stamped Rain-Never-Stopped-Me-abella onto Bella's Bestest Paper using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I coloured her with Copics, and added shading with Prismacolor Pencils and OMS.  I punched her out with Curved Rectangle Nesties, and added some Walnut Stain Distress ink to the inside of the stencil.
I stamped the sentiment (that comes with the image) onto white CS, and cut the lines out and stuck them to the image panel.
I topped things off with a yellow Martha Stewart flower in the lower left corner. 

Next week's challenge???  St' Patrick's Day!!!  Either use the colour green on your card, or use a St. Patty's image for the holiday on Saturday!  Send your card to Emily (emily@stampingbella.com) by Thursday night, and you will be entered to win some Bella Bucks, and your card will be published on the Bloggabella on Friday!

Also, don't forget you have another chance to win some moolah over on SCS!  Upload your challenge card to your gallery and use the key word BELLARIFFIC0912 so that we can see all the cards in one spot when we do a search!
And you can pop into the Stamping Bella forum and join in the chats too!

Hope you enjoyed, and thanks for stopping by!
