Chicks Rule!

Happy Friday everyone!  For this week's Stamping Bella challenge we were given a sketch to work with and I found a breeze to use.  I've pulled another Christine Grove image.. appropriately called Chicks Rule and isn't she just darling?  I'll be sending this as a graduation card to a niece.  She worked her butt off in college and had top grades.  I think this chick is just perfect for the occasion.

So I stamped her onto Bella's Bestest paper and colored her with copics.  There is a little bit of shading under her feet I used prismacolor pencils blended with gamsol on.  I then used Nestie circle dies to frame her.  Design Paper is Authentique.  The sentiment comes with the image and I used more circle dies to cut it out and frame it.  Finished this off with a pretty ribbon and button topped bow.

Next week our challenge is Christmas in July!  I've been thinking about getting a start on Christmas cards.....mind you just thinking about it so this will be the golden opportunity to make it happen.  Hope you can join us!  Feel free to drop into the blog and leave a comment or two...there are always Bella Bucks up for grabs each week.

Enjoy your weekend!
