Adorable!

Hi everyone! Happy Friday!! Today is the first Bellarific Friday I am participating in as a Bella Babe...can someone pinch me please???

Today's Bellarific Challenge was to make a "back to school" theme card, and I just HAD to use this SUPER-duper adorable Green Bean Baby from Stamping Bella, Scarlett The Teacup Girl! Seriously, I cannot even stand her cute-ness!! When I am home from work during the week (which hardly ever happens) and get to pick up my little one after school, we head to Dunkin' Donuts for a snack for her and a coffee for me! That's how my little cup fits into my theme...it's a coffee cup in my world instead of a tea cup!

I stamped Scarlett in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Buttercream Cardstock TWICE, and colored her once with Copic Markers. I then colored and cut out all three flowers and popped them up for some dimension. Diamond stickles adorn the center of each flower because I thought she should sparkle a bit!

I went with a Frosted Teal & Intense Orange color combo which perfectly matches the delish Farm Fresh paper from October Afternoon that I used. I stamped the Polkadot Inkblock in Versamark onto the Frosted Teal panel, and the sentiment, "Adorable" is from the Adorable Definition Block...I just inked up the "Adorable" part. I pierced all around the focal image, starting and ending on either side of my sentiment, and finished off my card with two brads from my stash. The layout is SC258, a sketch challenge from SCS from a few weeks ago!

Head on over to Bloggabella to see all the "back to school" creations from the Sistahood. While you're there, leave some love...your comment could win you $10 Bella Bucks!
