     Ooooweeee!  It's the lovey dovey time of year and I've tried to pack this card with as much as possible.  The Stamping Bella Stamp of the Month is Uptown Girl Lucille Sends Her Love.  You can get her all month long for 20% off.
     There are even more hearts on the stamp, but I fussy cut her out and trimmed a few off.  For the background I created the panel behind the image using a tutorial recently posted here.  To tone it down a bit I covered it with some vellum.
     Lucille's hearts are covered in Wink of Stella Clear Glitter pen.

Copics Used:
skin E000, E00, E11, E13, R20, R22, R30
hair E11, E15, E25
dress and shoes RV13, RV21, RV25
hearts and roses R27, R37, R46

     Next weeks challenge is this cool Mojobella 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.  You can enter your project in the Inlinkz over at Blogabella or 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.
