Bellariffic Friday - Inspiration for a Happy Birthday, Stephanie

It's Bellariffic Friday and this week we had a lovely, bright, sunny photo to inspire us.

I took the colours, the circle shapes and the flowers from the inspiration photo and made a birthday card for my friend Stephanie.  Uptown Girl Lolly seemed perfect for Stephanie as she loves to garden - even a spring shower won't keep her out of the garden!

I stamped Lolly and her Brolly onto Bella's Bestest paper with Memento Tuxedo black ink and coloured her with copics.  I masked off the little snail and then stamped him closer to her.   I paper pieced her raincoat and boots and tried my hand at some shading around the image like TammieBella rocked in her card here.  I added a sentiment banner and a trio of rhinestones for a splash of colour.

On the inside I stamped off part of the image so it was lighter and stamped it in the corner, adding a scallop border of the matching paper along one edge.

Here are the copics I used.

And we have a new Babe in the house!  Steph is joining our team today and we're so excited.  Check out her blog, Honey Bootique (cute name!) and give her a big Bella welcome!  And while you're on her blog.....drooooool over her stamp's a dream!

Be sure to check out the rest of the BellaBabes and the Sistah's cards for this week on Blogabella.  Next week's Bellariffic Friday challenge is Sketch #5.

We hope you'll get stamping with us - it's easy to play along - just ink up any current (check the website) Stamping Bella image, and email your card to Emily by next Thursday for a chance to win $50 in  Bella Bucks.

Ha! That polka dot paper for her boots and coat couldn't be cuter Leslie. Lolly is such a fun character. Wonderfully done! Hugs!
