Strummabella

I made this card for Stamping Bella's Bellarific Friday challenge over at the Bloggabella last week.

The challenge theme was Bling It On. I used Strummabell for my card.

I have to admit that she is my very first Bella and I love her! She looks so stylish and carefree. She was also a lot of fun to color. The gems(on sale!) are from Hero Arts and I colored one pink with a Copic marker to put on the bow in Bella's hair.

I paired her with some yummy Thrift Shop papers from October Afternoon. I inked the image with tea dye while the paper was still in the die. The sentiment came with the stamp.

That's all for now. Have a beautiful day, my friends! =)
