Molly ... over the miles

Happy Bellariffic Friday folks.  For today's challenge I decided to go square...yeah while I love the look of circle cards...I'm a little more adept at making them square.  So I pulled out Uptown Girl Molly sitting atop her luggage so she could send birthday wishes across the miles to my Sissy.  I was so surprised at how easy this sketch came together.

Once the image was stamped onto Bella's Bestest paper and colored, a Nestie circle die was used to cut it out.  Then I used a ruler and exacto knife to cut across the stacks of luggage...yes the image really does have more layers.  But with the half circle sketch, I thought her dangling feet would look neat. 

The paper is My Mind's Eye Lost and Found 3 - Ruby.  I added some wacky stitching along the edges and trimed out the hexagon border from the center strip.  A double sided satin ribbon topped with brad finishes this off.

Next week our challenge is a theme - Splendid Spring!  And boy am I ready for that!  Check out the inspiration on the Bella Blog and if you get a chance why not join us?  There's some Bella Bucks up for grabs every week.  Email a photo of your creation to by Thursday night.

Enjoy your weekend!
