Happy Bellariffic Friday folks!  Today's challenge was sistahs or friendship - so I made a card for a really great friend.  It's actually one of the new Uptown Girls.  This is Polly.  I think she is Be-you-tiful - just like my friend. 

I started by stamping the image onto Bella's Bestest paper- white.  I then stamped the chair onto design paper and cut it out.  I added some shading around the edges using prismacolor pencils blended with gamsol.  I then stamped the image again onto Bella's Bestest paper - colored it with copics and cut it out.  I know it takes a little extra work but I love the way it looks.  I love the white space of this card.  It showcases the image perfectly.  I layered this onto pink cardstock and then again onto Bella's Bestest Kraft paper
Now here's a peak at the inside. 
I generated the sentiment on my computer and cut it out with Nesties.
Now for next week's challenge we have another sketch.  I hope you can find time to play along with us.  And  you have a choice - make it a square or make it a circle.  Hmmm which one should I do?
Have a great weekend.  We have rain in the forecast but my Mom is in town and plan to head to the Country Living Fair in Rhinebeck, NY.  Can't wait!  We bought the weekend pass. 
Keep your eyes posted for Bella news on the release date.  I know I'm excited to get our newest artist, Christine Grove's whimsical farm friends into my hands.   
Ciao for now,
