Bellariffic Friday on Sunday

Hello we have Bellariffic Friday's post. I was a little challenged by this week's sketch but I decided to follow it and will tell ya I liked where it went. I choose to color Stamping Bella's Uptown Girl Bianca Loves her Big Cake. Of course with the sketch I would only be coloring a portion of this lovely stamp but I wanted to "fit in" as much as I could. I've built the layers behind using the Nesties I had available and believe it or not - a CD as a template for the largest one. This card is going to my niece who is heading to Spain for her next semester in college but will also be there for her 21st Birthday. I thought a little reminder of her roots in the red, white and blue theme and stars and stripes paper would be perfect.

Next week's Bellariffic Friday challenge is a little photo inspiration. Take whatever you can from this photo to motivate you. You can use the colors, the patterns or whatever else you "see" in it to make a card or project. Don't forget to share a photo of your creation by sending it to by Thursday night so we can see what you've come up with too. There are prizes up for grabs to one lucky participant and one commentor as well so hop on over to the blog and leave some love.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Lovely Cath! You're so brave too, I'm always afraid to cut off their legs - seems wrong :)

Love the tip about using a CD for the largest circle - clever!
