Lulu's Poppies

     Time for Bellarific Friday again!  Since it's May 1st the DT is using this month's Stamp of the Month, Lulu Loves Poppies.  She's on sale all this moth for 20% off and don't forget to check for tomorrow's Crazy Tuesday sale also.  Em offers some of her awesome stamps at amazing discounts just for one day.
     Last weeks challenge was to use this color inspiration.

     I found some paper that had a lot of the colors in it and then colored Lulu to match.  The poppies are covered with Wink of Stella.  So pretty IRL.

Copics Used:
skin E000, E00, E11, E13, E93
clothing  G21, BG11, BG72, Y32, Y35
flowers on headband and shoes E93, E95
poppies R20, R22, R24, G82

     Here's the inside.  There's no accompanying sentiment for Lulu so I used one from Neat and Tangles.

     Next week's challenge is to use this cool 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.
     Be blessed!
