Mimi Lulu plays in the snow with her Mommy

It's our last Bellariffic Friday post of the year folks. That makes me kind of sad. But don't worry, we'll be back after the Christmas and New Year's Holidays. That should give you some time to prepare for your celebrations and then play with all you new toys. Hope Santa brings you all you're wishing for. Maybe you'll even have a few new stamps to show us!

This week we had a sketch challenge from Paulineabella. It was an awesome one! I had no trouble picking papers, colors and an image to color up. I've been having some fun with Kraft paper so I used it as my card base - besides it went perfectly with the We R Memory Keepers design paper. I selected Mommy and Mimi Lulu in the snow from Stamping Bella to sit center stage.

Mimi was stamped with Memento Tuxedo black ink onto Bella's Bestest paper. Then I pulled out my copics and played. Remember, I'm challenging myself to play with some of the colors that otherwise sit in the case. So I pulled BG72,BG75 and BG78. Yum!

I added a strip using my new Martha Stewart Pine needles punch. A satin ribbon from Mary Maxim topped with a stray button I found in my drawer (love when you clean house - you find all kinds of neat goodies) along with some hemp cording. The image pops because I added a black Glaze pen on the hair. Liquid pearls were used to highlight the snowflakes and glitter makes them glisten.

The sentiment can also be found at Stamping Bella.

Stop by the Bella blog to see what all the other Babes and sistahs have to show us and leave a comment for a chance to win some Bella bucks.

Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy your Holidays!

Oh my Cath, this is an amazing looking card. I love the color tones you used. You what the funny thing is, I love these colors but when I create I use bold and bright tones, go figure that one out. Take it easy with the move. Hugs,
