Birthday Bella

German Phrase of the Day: Heute hat meine Schwester Geburtstag. = It is my sister's birthday today. Well, actually her birthday was in December...but it's a good phrase! :-) And actually, I sent this card to a good friend of my sister who's birthday was last week! (The same special lady who got the birthday card Julia made back here)

This was another VSN card, and I just love this Bella! I had just gotten her in the mail the day VSN started, so of course I had to get her all inked up! The challenge was to Bring on the Bling, so I added little bits of bling here and there. It's funny, several of my other cards had more bling to them, but this is what I came up with while working on this challenge. Oh well! I really like the party hat the best. When you look at the detail photo, you can see that I used some silver cord to make the frizzy bit at the top of her hat.

I also used another of my precious hat pins on this card. I just love those things, and am trying to be less stingy with them. See...I've used 2 now! ;-)

Quickly, I used the Cutie Pie DSP from SU!, BirthdayBella from Stampingbella (I think that's the one...I get confused sometimes though!) and the wonderful new cupcake set from MFT for the greeting. I colored her in with my aquapainter and watercolor crayons after stamping her with Palette Noir ink onto watercolor paper.

Have a great day everyone! We had a wonderful time at the Lowry Park Zoo in Tampa yesterday, and I think today will be a taking it easy day around here with Julia - then tonight I get to have a date with my husband! WOOHOO!! :-)
