Bellarific {Christmas In July} Friday!

Hi everyone! Happy Bellarific Friday!!

Today's Bellarific Friday Challenge is Christmas In July!! I LOVE this challenge and I love that I am starting my Christmas Cards in July! BONUS!!

For my card today, I am using one of the BRAND new images released on Wednesday from Stamping Bella, King Of The Candy Canes! I cannot even stand how CUTE he is!!

He is stamped onto Bella's Bestest Cream Paper and colored with Copic Markers. I added some Polar White Flower Soft to the rim of his crown as well as the top of the stocking he is holding. I cut him out and popped him up on some foam tape on a circle of Blush Red Dark that I cut from Circle Nestabilities and embossed with the Snowflakes Embossing Folder.

All the patterned paper is from Good Cheer by October Afternoon and the music paper pattern was cut with the Die-Namics Jumbo Scallop Die. I added some yummy ribbon and the bow was created with the Bow Easy. I finished this one off with three red brads.

Make sure to head on over to Bloggabella today to see all the creations for this challenge! Be sure to comment...one lucky commenter on today's Bellarific Friday post will win Bella Bucks (which you can use on some newly released rubbah!!). Also check out this week's Tantalizing Toosday deal while you are there!!

Don't forget the HUGE Bella news: The Babe's are looking high and low for a new friend to join the rank of Bella Babe-ness. If you think you are Babe worthy and want to strut your talent every week...then here's what ya gotta do!

Submit your bestest cards and play along with our challenges for all 4 weeks in August. Since a Babe requirement is submitting for BellaRIFFIC friday's, you'll be getting your feet wet and showing of your creativity.
