Bellarific Friday: Shower!

Hi all,
Happy weekend!  I have a fun weekend planned - I get to go out on the town tonight and stay in a hotel!  I have to say: I LOVE staying in hotels.  It's the best.
I have a nice steak dinner to attend on Sunday as well, so I am ready for some yum!
I hope everyone has some great plans as well...

Welcome to Bellarific Friday!  Our challenge this week was to make a shower card - you could have done a baby shower, bridal shower, or something with rain on it!  Em doesn't mind.

Here's mine:

My card base is Bashful Blue CS.  My papers are from an SU DSP pack - can't remember the name, but it's definitely old.  All the mats are black.  I also added some white machine stitching to one of the layers, along with some green Martha Stewart pearls.  I rounded two of the corners on the bottom layer.  The layer just underneath the image is DSP cut out with Label 18 Nesties.

I stamped the lovely BridalPartyBellas on Bella's Bestest Paper using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I coloured them mostly with Copics and added some shading with my Prismacolor Pencils.  I cut them out with Label 4 Nesties and added some Wheat Versamagic sponging inside the stencil.  I also added a bunch of glitter dots all around, and all over the bride's dress.
I totally love these girls - absolutely perfect image!!!

Next week's challenge??? Our 8th sketch challenge for this year!  Make a card using any of the images sold at Stamping Bella and the layout below.  Send it to Emily ( by Thursday night, and you will be entered to win some Bella Bucks (aka, free product), and your card will be published on the Bloggabella!  We love seeing what you come up with!

Hope you enjoyed, and thanks for stopping by!
