The smell of rain

     Happy Bellarific Friday!  Today I'm sharing a card using Stamping Bella's Gilbert and Maisy under the toadstool.  Here's what last weeks sketch looked like.  I traded the strip at the bottom for a nice little sunshine.  Don't you just love those days when it's raining and shining at the same time.  LOL

     If Gilbert's like me, he's taking a sniff of that wonderful clean smell with a good shower.

Copics Used:
toadstool  R35, R37, R59, E40, E42, E43, W1, W3
Gilbert E31, E33, E35, E50, E93, E95
Maisy W1, W3, W5, E93, E95
grass and rocks YG03, YG93, YG95, E23, E99
flowers R43, Y17, G82

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

     Next week's challenge is this cool color palette, plus the team will be showcasing the new Stamp of the Month for May.

     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!
