It's Bellarific Friday!

Good morning! Today I have another baby card to share; I love making baby cards! Our theme this week was flowers, so I thought the combination of Pookie Lollipop and this pretty floral paper would work out great. I also used Mercy's sketch for this card; check it out here.

Pookie Lollipop is colored with pencils and Goo Gone. I used a healthy dose of the sparkly stuff on the yellow flower. In real life it really sparkles and you can see the shading on the petals through the glitter! The smaller flowers and her little brown headband are accented with brown glitter.

Image: Stamping Bella "Pookie Lollipop"
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Paper: PTI Lemon Tart and Dark Chocolate, Heidi Grace DP
Embellies: PTI Lemon Tart Grosgrain Ribbon, SU! Chocolate Chip Grosgrain Ribbon, Barbara Trombley's Art Glitter in "Angel Dust", Doodlebug Glitter
Extras: Crayolas/Prismas/Goo Gone, Spellbinders Nestabilities, Foam Tape

Tips and Tricks:
Have you ever been able to see your DP through light colored ribbon? I sure could when I was making this card.... To fix that I cut a strip of the Lemon Tart CS the width of the card and just a smidge smaller than the width of the ribbon. I glued the strip down first and then adhered the ribbon over the top of it. Voila! Problem solved!

I hope you will head over to Blogabella and check out the rest of the entries for today's challenge. Thanks for stopping by and sparkle on!


Oh my! I just went to Em's blog to link it up and it was a sketch challenge this week.... Hmmm! How could I have missed that? Turns out we were supposed to include flowers on our sketch.... Well, no sketch and no flowers.... Major faux pas! What's a girl to do? Well, I guess I will choose to not sweat the small stuff and keep on stamping!
