Bella's Makeover!

Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday!!

Here is my card for today's Sketch Challenge on SCS, SC254!! I love this sketch...different and alot of fun to work with!!

For my card, I started by stamping this UBER adorable Cuppie (Bella on her wedding day!! LOL!!), from the brand new Sweet Indulgence set from Taylored Expressions in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Buttercream Cardstock and I colored her with Copic Markers. I did add eyelashes with my Copic Multiliner, as there is NO way Alice would let Bella get married without a perfectly made up face!!

Bella's Wedding Day makeover by Alice is the inspiration for my card today! Doesn't my Bella Cuppie look SUPER scared! I think that one of my favorite parts of Breaking Dawn (which is actually my favorite book in the series) is when Bella gets over her fear and wants to run down the aisle to marry Edward. My word, who WOULDN'T run to him! (giggle!)

This quote always cracks me up...gotta love Alice!

"I've only allotted so much time to make you stunning Bella - you might have taken better care of my raw material"

ALL the cardstock, patterned paper (Whirlybird by My Minds Eye...LOVE it!) and embellishments on my card (except for the brad) are from the brand new Spa Key Ingredients! I LOVE this KI (I know, I know...I say that about each of them, but seriously, I rarely reach for anything but them!!), the colors are SOOOOOO delish!!

I added some Diamond Stickles to the lights on the vanity mirror and all the panels were sewn with my sewing machine.

You can get this set and the Spa Key Ingredients right now at Taylored Expressions! There is also an AMAZING Sweet Spa Bundle available that includes a chenille gel neck wrap! I could use one of those right now!!! How indulgent!
