Bellarific Friday

Good morning!  Did you all know that Emily is back at SCS as a Member Company?  How cool is that?  The weekly challenges are posted there and you can also email your creation to Emily to be posted on Bloggabella.

As I was looking through my stamps yesterday, I picked out several possibilities but decided I had to go with this cute Peep...that heart was just asking to be paper pieced!  Lately I really hate to cover up pretty DP, so I decided I would stamp the image on a cutout that I could "patch" back together.  I then stamped the heart on the script DP; I thought I would just be able to color the scallops, but the DP was too dark...same thing with Peep.  As I was cutting the scallops out of CS, I wondered to myself why I thought this was a good idea?!  LOL  I used some twill for the corner elements of the sketch.  I toyed with adding a felt flower, but thought it looked better plain.

This is so cute. Love all the pretty dsp you've used. Funny about rethinking the paper piecing of those scallops, I've done the same thing. It was well worth it, though, it looks amazing.

Adorable Valentine card, Angela. That peep is just too cute! Glad I'm not the only one who hates to cover up good DP. Been there...done that!
