Happy mail

     Gosh we're on the last day of October already.  Besides being Halloween, it's also Bellarific Friday!  The challenge revealed last week was to use Buttons or Bows on your card.  I've used part of the lovely Maybelline Loves Mail stamp framed with a die cut photo frame and added a paper bow.  I layered up the sentiment die cut for some dimension.

Copics Used:
skin E000, E00, E11, E13, R20, R22
hair E53, E55, E57
dress R81, R83, R85, R89
bench E31, E33, E35
letter E41
flowers Y11, Y17, TR21, YR23, V12, V15, R39, R43, R46, G82, YG03, YG93, YG95, YG97
mailbox C00, C2, C4, C6, C8, R46

The challenge for next Friday is this great sketch.

     To play along all you need to do is use any current (check the store) Stamping Bella stamp to create your project and email it by next Thursday to Emily at emily dot stampingbella dot com.  Your card will be showcased on Blogabella along with the DT projects and you'll be added to the drawing for the monthly $50.00 gift voucher.
