Faux Bella

For all of you who only want to see Stampin' Up! items, look no further! There are Bella stamps involved in this post! Fair warning!!!

I was at my mother-in-laws house this afternoon browsing through some stamping catalogs that she had and saw a card like this one, and just had to make it this afternoon.

It fits in perfectly with Erin's challenge blog that you can see here: http://www.stampchallenges.blogspot.com/
We are challened to make something faux this week. So here is my Bella card that uses faux stitching, although it's hard to tell by the picture. I used my tool kit and pierced the holes along the soft sky piece, and faux stitched it using my white gel pen. I also did a little doodling around Bella herself with my black marker. Just a fun little card to celebrate someone's birthday!

I love the colors of this paper together. The designer paper comes from Stampin' Up! and is called Spring Break. I will be making more cards with these colors together this weekend!

Supplies Used:
Stamps: A Little Birdie Told Me, All-Year Cheer II, Bella
Ink: Soft Sky, Blue Bayou, SU Markers
Cardstock: Whisper White, Soft Sky, Spring Break Designer Paper
Accessories: Tool Kit, Black Marker, White Gel Pen, Ticket Corner Punch, Orange Ribbon (Blog Candy from Erin!), Vellum Circle Tag(RAK)

Love your card! Great stitching too. Love the colors and the layout and of course that Bella. It's fun to "cheat" on SU! sometimes and play with other stamps! Thanks for joining our challenge. :)
