A flower for Mrs. Billie


     Hello Stamping Bella fans!  It's Bellarific Friday and I have a card to share with you today using the lovely Flower for a Friend stamp set.  I used my pencils for this one and the sketch for the last challenge.


     I still need a LOT of practice with my pencils.


     Next weeks challenge is "One layer wonder".
     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!

  11. This is a truly perfect take on that fun sketch, Tracy, and your pencil coloring looks fabulous! I think it's kinda tough to shade with pencils, and you nailed it. I really love that you chose purple for your flower, too. Really is a nice contrast to the colors in the papers!
