Reading is FUN-damental

     It's Bellarific Friday AND since it's April it's time to announce the Stamp of the Month from Stamping Bella.  I've used her today on my card, Uptown Girl Rebecca Loves to Read.  I do too!  Nothing like getting into a good book.  Rebecca is on sale for 20% through the month of April
     Last weeks challenge was to "Stitch it up".  I've added some faux stitching to the wood grain panel.

Copics Used:
skin E000, E00, E11, E13
hair Y21, E31, E33, E35
clothing BG11, BG72
pillows BG11, BG72, R82, R83, R85, W1, W3, W5, YR21, YR23, YR24
book W1, W3, W5

     Next weeks challenge is this awesome sketch.

     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.
