Higher!


     Have you got great plans for the weekend?  Looks like everybody around here needs to put theirs on hold.  I think we're in for a nasty rainy few days.  Not these two though.
     It's Stamping Bella's Bellarific Friday which means new cards and a new challenge.  I've used Ramona and Teddy in a balloon for my card.  Last week's challenge was to use this sketch.


     Don't know what's up lately but you may have noticed that I have been fussy cutting the images on most of my cards.  I added a bit of stitching to the wood grain panel and cut the clouds, ribbon and bow with stitched edge dies.  The balloon is covered in Wink of Stella and some Stickles on the dots and I threw in a few sequins for fun.


     I used the accompanying sentiment on the inside of the card.


     Hope you enjoyed the card.  Next weeks challenge is "Birthday Wishes".  To play along just use a Stamping Bella image (make sure you use something that's currently in the store stock) and the theme requirements.  Get your project photographed and emailed to Em at (emily at stampingbella dot com) with Bellarific Friday challenge and the date of the challenge in the subject line by Thursday evening.  Em offers a $25.00 Bella Bucks prize to one lucky winner every month.
     You can find all the wonderful DT creations as well as those who participated in the sketch challenge over at Blogabella.     Be blessed!

  14. Now that is precious! I think the sentiment is wonderful and my little eye did spy your stitching. I had that same dad-blasted problem last week with my sewing machine where the stitch I picked was on the reverse side of the material. I flipped the bobbin and everything....LOL. I'm sure I gave the neighbors a show as my sewing table is in front of the window. This card is wonderful and I love the extra bling of sequins too.
    hugs,
