Birthday Thoughts

     Well friends, it's another Bellarific Friday.  Hope you all have some exciting and fun plans for the Labor Day weekend if you're here in the US.
     The challenge was to use this sketch.
sketch-17---Aug-29 copy
     I've kept my card design really simple for mailing purposes.  I've used Stamping Bella's "Uptown Girl Jayden loves to Journal".  This is the first time I've colored her up and I just love her!
As usual you can't see the Wink of Stella glitter pen that I added to the flowers on her shirt, but you can see a hint of the Stickles I added to the steam and her cupcake.

     There are some great new things coming for Stampingbella so be on the lookout.  Em has a little contest going on at Blogabella and on FB to take a selfie with your fave SB stamp/stamps.  There's a $50.00 voucher up for grabs!
     Next weeks challenge is to use paper piecing on a card with a SB stamp of course.  Hope you'll play along!
