Hello Peeps! I have another card using Uptown Girls Patty and Dotty from Stamping Bella to share with you today. I even tried a trick I've seen some of the other Babes use - cropping the image so that only a portion of it is in the image panel. I have a hard time cutting any part of these glorious images off but I wanted to take up less real estate on the face of this card so it just seemed to work.

To start, I stamped the girls onto Bella's Bestest paper using Memento Tuxedo black ink and colored them with copics. I then added dimensional shading using prismacolor pencis blended with gamsol. I then cut the image panel out using Spellbinders Classic circle dies. The matt of cardstock behind it is a Spellbinder die called Picot Edge circles. The design paper is from the My Mind's Eye Lost & Found II 6x6 Blush paper pack. I liked the way I could incorporate the Paris theme with these two decked out girls.

The adornments are a pink felt heart cut using a Spellbinders die then topped with a button and twine along with a hat pin. The pink ribbon border is from Close to My Heart - and I machine stitched it to the card. In the upper left hand corner I added two pink Dew Drops and glitter adorns the dresses and boas. Finished card is 5x6 inches.

You still have some time to work on this weeks Bellariffic Friday challenge - pick any sketch we've used this year and give it a whirl again! Don't forget to send a picture of your creation to Emily@stampingbella.com by Thursday night so it can be included in the Friday Blog lineup.

See ya later this week.
